Ben Nighthorse Campbell trucking 2012 Capitol Christmas Tree to Washington, D.C.

By | General Posts

 

Former Colorado U.S. Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell, a member of the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame, is behind the wheel of a Mack truck hauling the nation's 2012 Capitol Christmas Tree from Colorado to Washington, D.C., the American Motorcyclist Association reports. 

"It is a privilege to drive the tree for the U.S. Capitol from Colorado this year," said Campbell, who was inducted into the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2001. Campbell, an avid motorcyclist, represented Colorado in Congress from 1993 to 2005. 

Choose Outdoors, a national nonprofit coalition for outdoor recreation, is coordinating the 2012 Capitol Christmas Tree tour with the White River National Forest, where the 73-foot-tall Colorado Engleman spruce tree was harvested. 

The almost-four-week-long trip began in Meeker, Colo., where the tree was harvested from the White River National Forest in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. On the way to Washington, D.C., the tree is scheduled to stop in cities and towns in Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia. 

The custom-decorated Mack truck used to haul the tree was fitted with a special cradle to support the tree's branches. 

The AMA and AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame are urging motorcyclists along the route to greet Campbell and the tree during its journey. 

The next stop is in Denver from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11, at the Midtown Development at 6700 Pecos St. The AMA will post route updates on its Facebook page at www.facebook.com/AmericanMotorcyclist

Harley-Davidson And Dav Help Wounded Veterans Move Onward

By | General Posts

Campaign spotlights Harley’s Heroes® and DAV with two veterans’ stories

 

For the fourth straight year, Harley-Davidson continues its tradition of honoring United States military veterans throughout the month of November, this year by raising awareness of DAV (Disabled American Veterans) and the Harley’s Heroes program through a national video campaign spotlighting two veterans who have benefitted from the program. 

Troy Torgerson of Wausau, Wis. and Nick Bernardi of Newark, N.J., both served in Iraq and sought help from the DAV upon their return home. Their videos can be viewed at www.harley-davidson.com/military.

 Harley’s Heroes brings DAV mobile service offices (MSOs) to Harley-Davidson dealerships throughout the country on more than 200 days out of the year, bringing services directly to where veterans live.

 DAV National Service Officers, all of whom are disabled veterans themselves, help veterans understand and apply for the benefits available, including medical treatment, disability compensation,  insurance, home loans, continued education and training, and more. Veterans get help navigating the process of applying for and securing the benefits to which they’re entitled through the VA. Last year, Harley’s Heroes helped the nation’s heroes claim tens of millions of dollars in earned benefits.

 “Through these veterans’ stories, we’re hoping to inspire other veterans by showing them the positive impact DAV can have, as well as motivate them to pursue the benefits they deserve,” said Mike McCann, director of core consumer marketing at Harley-Davidson. “The services the DAV provides all across the country day in and day out are vital to helping injured veterans move onward with their lives, and we’re proud to support their efforts with the Harley’s Heroes program.”

 Since 2007, Harley-Davidson has provided $2 million in grants to the DAV. DAV MSOs visit over 800 U.S. locations each year and serve more than 18,000 veterans per year through this program.

 “Harley’s Heroes enables DAV to provide free services that empower veterans to live a higher quality of life. Through our partnership, we recognize and honor those who defended our way of life,” said Arthur H. Wilson, DAV National Adjutant. “We’re grateful for all this partnership has done to ensure that we fulfill our promises to the men and women who serve.”

 Harley-Davidson’s history with the U.S. military dates back almost 100 years. More than one third of Harley-Davidson customers are veterans of the armed forces, and approximately 15% of all Harley-Davidson employees are veterans. In recent years, in addition to the Harley’s Heroes program, Harley-Davidson has paid tribute to the nation’s veterans through donations made to the World War II Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
