Harley-Davidson has teamed up with Adam Sandoval—the founder of ScootinAmerica, an initiative that focuses on giving back to our military members—to launch MISSION: “THANK YOU”. At Harley-Davidson, we believe every American should be able to experience the profound freedom of motorcycle riding, especially those who risk their lives to protect ours.
MISSION: “THANK YOU” launched at San Diego Harley-Davidson this morning. Harley-Davidson and Sandoval worked with Wounded Warrior Project to honor a WWP alumnus and veteran from San Diego with a new Harley-Davidson powered by the Milwaukee-Eight engine. Shane Kruchten, the surprised recipient and U.S. military veteran, was in shock and full of gratitude learning about his new Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
Kruchten is the first of eight honorees that will get bikes this year. Sandoval is asking every American to nominate a military member—past or present—who has dedicated their life to protecting our freedom by submitting their story of sacrifice, strength and courage of service. His cross-country MISSION: “THANK YOU” aims to thank those who have served, and are serving, to protect our freedom by giving away eight Harley-Davidson motorcycles powered by new Milwaukee-Eight engines. A panel consisting of Sandoval, Wounded Warrior Project representatives and Harley-Davidson leadership will select which seven other deserving military members will be honored with new motorcycles. The honorees will also receive a lifetime membership to the Harley Owners Group and they can give a free Harley-Davidson Riding Academy class to a loved one.
Based on America’s nominations, Sandoval will make seven special stops along his cross-country journey to give away the new Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Follow the mission on AdamSandovalRides.com or follow Adam’s journey on Facebook or Twitter.
