Harley-Davidson Gives $1 million Grant To Disabled American Veterans

Harley-Davidson, Inc. yesterday announced the awarding of a second $1 million grant from the Harley-Davidson Foundation, Inc. to the non-profit organization, the Disabled American Veterans (DAV). The new grant announced yesterday at the DAV National Convention in Atlanta is designated for continued funding of the DAV’s Mobile Service Office (MSO) program over the next four years.

The DAV MSO program increases veterans’ accessibility to benefits by literally putting service offices on the road. Since 2007, this program sponsored by Harley-Davidson — dubbed Harley’s Heroes® — has visited thousands of sites across the United States, providing important counseling and assistance to help tens of thousands of veterans secure the benefits to which they are entitled from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense, and other government agencies. You can read and learn more about this program by going to Harley-Davidson Heroes.

    Every large corporation should have the D V’s first on their contribution list. If they would all wake up and realize that if it weren’t for them their corporations would not exist !
    All gave some — and some gave all. I commend Harley and hope they can influence other vendors and corporations to follow their lead and help those Vets that deserve their support. Most people don’t realize how many Vet’s come home with a disability or those that came back from all the other wars that are still alive, living in a wheelchair and need an aid and attendant. The VA bears the burden of taking care of thousands of all veterans who fall in the “Aid and Attendant ” category. These are vets that are now in need of equiptment, but were not hurt during active duty. This is the fastest growing group of Vets, but least funded. I can tell you from first hand experience that there is much left to be done.
