Motorcycle program offered to US veterans

Hamilton Harley-Davidson in Sturgis is offering a special program to complement the parent company’s support of U.S. veterans.
Co-owner Tom Hamilton said the Sturgis location will provide free motorcycle rental for a day to any veteran or current member of the Armed Forces.
It’s the first program of its kind in the country, said Cathi Abbs, executive director of Sturgis Area Chamber of Commerce.
Hamilton said veterans and those currently in active enlistment simply need to come to the store – located on U.S. 12 at White School Road – complete a few pieces of paperwork then take it for the day at no cost.
Hamilton said no other community in the nation or dealership offers such an opportunity.
George Petropoulos from Harley-Davidson and Jason Braase with Wounded Warrior Project shared details of the new program during last month’s Sturgis Fest.
Petropoulos said Harley-Davidson’s corporate office partners with Wounded Warrior Project and gives away six motorcycles to deserving veterans coming home from war.
