Military veterans can receive free counseling and assistance with their government benefits, thanks to a partnership between Harley-Davidson and Disabled American Veterans (DAV).
The Harley's Heroes program will visit C&A Harley-Davidson, 7610 Commerce Place, Plain City, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15.
The program, sponsored by the Harley-Davidson Foundation, has brought the DAV's Mobile Service Office (MSO) program to thousands of sites across the United States since 2007, according to a press release issued by the motorcycle manufacturer.
It provides counseling and assistance to help veterans and their families secure the benefits to which they are entitled from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the Department of Defense and other government agencies.
Veterans who suffer from injuries or disabilities related to their military service, but who have never filed a claim for benefits with the VA or have found it difficult to work through the red tape, are encouraged to attend
Harley's Heroes is made possible with the help of a grant from the Harley-Davidson Foundation to the DAV. This year, the Harley-Davidson Foundation pledged another four-year commitment of $1 million to support the outreach program, making the total commitment $2 million since 2007, according to a press release issued by the company.
More than 300 Harley-Davidson dealerships across the United States have hosted a Harley's Heroes event since the program's inception four years ago.
