Waterford, Michigan (PRWEB) May 23, 2014
Military veterans in the Tri-County area can receive free counseling and assistance with their government benefits when Harley-Davidson and Disabled American Veterans (DAV) bring the Harley’s Heroes® program to ABC Harley-Davidson on Sunday, June 8th, 2014, 10 AM to 4 PM.
DAV National Service Officers will provide benefits counseling to those veterans who suffer from service-connected injuries, but may have never filed a claim for benefits or have found it difficult working through the red tape.
Harley’s Heroes is hosted in conjunction with ABC Harley-Davidson’s Military Appreciation Day, including: complimentary lunch and entertainment for Veterans and their families from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
ABC Harley-Davidson will also host a Veteran’s Ride to raise funds for the DAV. The event starts at 10 AM on June 8th at ABC Harley-Davidson. For more information or to register, visit http://www.AbcHarleyDavidson.com or call 248-674-3175.
Harley’s Heroes is made possible with the help of a $1 million grant from the Harley-Davidson Foundation to Disabled American Veterans (DAV).
The Harley’s Heroes program travels throughout the United States, visiting over 273 Harley-Davidson dealerships to date, where benefits assistance is offered to veterans of all ages in communities where they live.
The Harley’s Heroes mission is to provide assistance for all veterans in obtaining benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and to show appreciation for their service and sacrifice to our country.
Injuries suffered during military service sometimes take years to manifest or go years before being diagnosed. Many veterans have their injuries go untreated or uncompensated. Thanks to the DAV’s free services, veterans can get the help they need.
