Harley-Davidson Flag Display Honoring the 10th Anniversary of September 11th

In recognition of the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks on America, the Harley-Davidson Museum is displaying thousands of flags that spell the word “Remember” on the Museum grounds. This special display is in place since yesterday Saturday, September 10 until Monday, September 12.

There are 2,792 American flags incorporated in the display, each representing a person who lost his or her life on September 11, 2001, and 110 Wisconsin flags placed next to American flags to represent the Wisconsin soldiers who have lost their lives in the War on Terror since it began in 2003. Visitors are invited to stand on a platform above the display to view it on the grounds below. The Museum also invites members of the community to bring American flags needing to be retired to the Museum at any time throughout the year. (photo@harley-davidson)

    I’d like to fully thank The Harley Davidson Motor Company for their extraordinary support of the 2002 Ride to Remember Ground Zero ride for firefighters. Concurrent with the first intro of Firefighter Special Edition bikes the Motor Company provided equipment, staff and special support to America’s Fire Service spontaneously standing for our 343 FDNY losses.

    Spiritual, Patriotic, Supportive, All American, Harley Davidson and it’s employees.

    Eternal thanks,

    Eric Sondeen in behalf of Wind & Fire MC, IAFF L2085, and grateful fire families of America.

    Great job at looking like HD supports the good old USA but would it not be more effective if they actually used all parts made in the USA too build their bikes? To me this seems like just another way to look good without actually supporting American workers. Just my observation. This is kind of like Walmart doong the same. Looks good but just a little insincere.
