MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Therapy can take many forms, and plenty of people would say simply riding a motorcycle can be quite therapeutic. 

About a dozen veterans rode to the Harley-Davidson Museum Tuesday, Aug. 24 for a special, private tour. 

It's part of the Wounded Warrior Project's program called Rolling Project Odyssey. 

It's a unique group riding experience that helps support warriors as they recover from the invisible wounds of war. But a lot of the therapy also comes from simply talking with one another.

"We all suffer from the invisible wounds of war, so having like-minded men and women around, your brothers and sisters, even though you put on different uniforms, it really means a lot to us to just sit together and talk, share stories," said Army veteran and WWP spokesperson Deven Schei. "That's where a lot of the therapy really, really helps a lot."

Deven also said that any veteran who's in need or in crisis, especially after recent events in Afghanistan, should reach out to the Wounded Warrior Project or any nonprofit that's willing to help.
