H-D Awards $1M Grant to Support Veterans

DAV helps Vets secure benefits
By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Aug. 05, 2010
The Harley-Davidson Foundation is awarding a $1 million grant to the non-profit organization Disabled American Veterans.

Announced at the DAV National Convention in Atlanta, the grant will fund the DAVs Mobile Service Office program over the next four years. The Harley-Davidson Foundation had also previously made a $1 million grant to the DAV in 2006.

We are proud to continue our relationship with the DAV and help the organization support veterans of all generations, says Gail Lione, president of the Harley-Davidson Foundation. Veterans have always been important members of the Harley-Davidson family and partnering with the DAV is an ideal way to support them and recognize their contributions to our country.

The DAV MSO program travels the country, helping veterans secure the benefits to which they are entitled from the Department of Veteran Affairs, the Department of Defense and other government agencies.

Harley-Davidson not only represents freedom and patriotism, the Company backs up its brand and generously supports those brave men and women whose sacrifices protect our nation, says Arthur H. Wilson, DAV national adjutant and chief executive officer. Through the support of the Harley-Davidson Foundation, DAV representatives have visited nearly 300 dealerships across the nation on the Harleys Heroes tour, delivering free benefits assistance to disabled veterans and their families through our Mobile Service Office program. Its hard to put into words just how much the Harleys Heroes program has meant to thousands of sick and wounded heroes.
