A local mil­i­tary vet­er­an is loy­al­ly lead­ing the charge to help fel­low Indi­ana vet­er­ans through a major Mar­i­on event and more.

Tyler Wineinger is the Vice Pres­i­dent of the non­prof­it War­rior Breed Motor­cy­cle Club of Indi­ana which helps ful­fill needs of Hoosier vet­er­ans. He joined in 2016 sim­ply seek­ing the com­radery he felt in the Marines, but years lat­er, serv­ing oth­ers through the club has become his great­est reward. Tyler and his team at War­rior Breed have helped hun­dreds of Indi­ana vet­er­ans in build­ing wheel­chair ramps, roof repair, assist­ing with bills, donat­ing mobil­i­ty scoot­ers and bicy­cles, ful­fill­ing oth­er needs, and con­nect­ing vets to resources.

For sev­en con­sec­u­tive years since 2017, Wineinger has coor­di­nat­ed a large team of vol­un­teers includ­ing mem­bers from War­rior Breed to help run the annu­al Indy Airstrip Attack at the Mar­i­on Munic­i­pal Air­port. His team assists with park­ing, san­i­ta­tion, secu­ri­ty, and more. All of the park­ing fees go to War­rior Breed’s mis­sion to help Hoosier vet­er­ans. This year, they broke a record, rais­ing over $13,000.

Wineinger has per­son­al­ly vol­un­teered for Wreaths Across Amer­i­ca, hav­ing pre­sent­ed the Marine Corps Wreath at the Mar­i­on Nation­al Ceme­tery in 2018. Over the years, Wineinger has giv­en his time and resources to the VA Hos­pi­tal. He has led War­rior Breed mem­bers to rebuild the VA green­house, plant fruit trees, build grape arbors, and donate gar­den­ing tools…all to help inpa­tient vets have some­thing to do for men­tal health.

Wineinger was born in Muncie, grew up in Flori­da, grad­u­at­ed from Uni­ver­si­ty High School in Orlan­do, served in the Marine Corps for near­ly 6 years with com­bat duty in the Mid­dle East, and lat­er attend­ed col­lege, grad­u­at­ing from Motor­cy­cle Mechan­ics Insti­tute in Orlan­do. He served two years with the Indi­ana Motor­cy­cle Preser­va­tion Soci­ety. Wineinger has been a leader with War­rior Breed since 2017.

He expressed, Giv­ing back to those who sac­ri­ficed for our free­dom is what I love to do more than any­thing, and War­rior Breed made it all pos­si­ble. It has become a lega­cy that I’ve been proud to be a part of.”
