FALCONER - Local military veterans will receive free counseling and assistance with their earned benefits from the Disabled American Veterans when Harley-Davidson of Jamestown hosts Harley's Heroes on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Since 2007, this program sponsored by The Harley Davidson Foundation - dubbed "Harley's Heroes" - has brought DAV National Service Officers to hundreds of dealerships across the country, providing important counseling and assistance to help tens of thousands of veterans and their families secure the government benefits which they earned through service. Harley's Heroes eliminates long trips veterans would alternatively have to make from rural communities to city offices. DAV National Service Officers, all wartime veterans themselves, are able to work efficiently from the fully-staffed van or tent, helping all veterans with their questions about what benefits they are eligible for - even if they have never filed a claim or have found it difficult working through the red tape.
Last year along, the DAV visited over 870 communities nationwide, helping thousands of veterans get the help they need. This local Harley's Heroes event is hosted in conjunction with the dealership's Labor Day barbecue, which will raise money to support the DAV service programs. There will be live music, free lunch, Cornhole and Horseshoe tournaments and a Buffalo Bills ticket raffle.
