Celebrating Military Family Month

Each November, the President signs a proclamation declaring it Military Family Month.

Since being established in 1996 by the Armed Services YMCA, each November the President signs a proclamation recognizing it as Military Family Month. As a nation, it is important that we recognize and honor the sacrifices of our military families, as well as their enlisted loved ones. Throughout the month, military families worldwide are honored through events and ceremonies.

JamesGlass

Since our country’s founding, brave members of our military have stood strong as one American team, ready to defend our homeland and safeguard the values for which we stand.  They represent the best our Nation has to offer, and serving alongside them are proud and loving family members — heroes on the home front.  Each day, they make sacrifices for their loved ones and their country.  They have answered their call of duty, and as a Nation, we must answer ours and serve them as well as they have served us.  During Military Family Month, we pay tribute to and thank our military families for their service to our country, and we recognize the extraordinary ways in which they give of themselves for us all. – President Barack Obama

Last November, we asked military loved ones to submit pictures of the military veteran or active duty service member in their life to show how much they appreciated them. What we received was an overwhelming amount of military family members submitting beautiful tributes for their loved ones. Spouses, parents, children, and grandchildren all alike shared photos to recognize their loved one for their sacrifice.

It is important to remember those loved ones behind the tributes, the ones who hold down the fort at home, not just this month, but all year long. Today we thank all our military family members, friends, and loved ones for their sacrifice for our country.

Below are some of the touching military tributes we received last year, featuring the loved ones that took their time to honor their military hero. Today, we honor you!

Military Family Month

Honoring the military family members who stand behind their loved ones, sacrificing for our country's freedom. We salute you!

How Harley-Davidson Military Sales Gives Back to the Military Community

As a military apparel company, it is our goal at Harley-Davidson Military Sales to celebrate, honor, and commemorate our brave U.S. Military members, both active and veterans. This desire to uphold and honor our military community goes beyond selling merchandise. We believe we also hold a financial and moral obligation to support our military communities. Harley-Davidson Military Sales, as a part of the Overseas Military Sales Group (OMSG), is proud to share with our customers that we fulfill these beliefs through donations, as well as Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) events.

Military Harley-Davidson

Who We Are 

Harley-Davidson Military Sales is a part of the Overseas Military Sales Group (OMSG).  OMSG also includes Military AutoSource, the on-base, overseas distributor of Harley-Davidson motorcycles to the U.S. Military. As the overseas distributor, we have a presence on almost every overseas military installation – from the Middle East, to the Pacific Rim, to Europe – giving our active duty military members privileged military pricing and benefits on new motorcycles. To learn more about our on-base Harley-Davidson program, please visit www.militaryautosource.com/harley-davidson

In 2013, Harley-Davidson Military Sales decided to take the spirit of the overseas Harley-Davidson program and share it with our passionate veterans, military supporters, and Harley-Davidson riders through the Harley-Davidson Military Sales online apparel store. Our team custom designs genuine Harley-Davidson apparel with military support graphics, allowing our customers to join us in celebrating, honoring, and commemorating our brave U.S. Military members.

How We Give Back

As a company, and more importantly, as proud military supporters, we’re delighted to be able to give back to the military community in a number of ways. A portion of every vehicle sold by the Overseas Military Sales Group is returned directly to the military community. The OMSG associates also hold fundraisers throughout the year, proudly donating all proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Aside from financial donations, our company also supports the military through Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) events. MWR covers a range of community support and quality of life programs for the Armed Forces and their families at the more than 2,000 facilities on U.S. military bases worldwide.

LTC Stouffer was thrilled to be the winner of the 2015 Street 750!

Military AutoSource hosts many MWR events throughout the year on military bases around the world. This past July 4th, as millions of Americans celebrated at backyard BBQs, Military AutoSource hosted MWR events in Afghanistan, Djibouti, and Germany. One event we hosted in Bagram, Afghanistan was the “Operation Riding Freedom” event where one lucky Marine even walked away the winner of the 2015 Harley-Davidson Street 750.

We are very proud of our great relationship with the U.S. Armed Forces, and it is an honor for us to give back to the brave men, women, and families who give so much for us.

We invite you to check out some of the great pictures from our recent Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (MWR) events around the world!

The Yellow Ribbon | Remembering Those Who Serve

The Yellow Ribbon is a powerful symbol in the United States. It serves as a symbol of remembrance of the brave men and woman who are serving far away from home defending our country, our freedoms.

Looking back through history, the Yellow Ribbon has appeared numerous times, even dating back over 400 years ago in the famed song “Round Her Neck She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. Some believe the symbol may even have ties to the Civil War, although no evidence has been confirmed.

The first significant use of the Yellow Ribbon in modern-day America occurred during the hostage crisis in Iran. A committee in Kentucky organized a campaign to “Tie a Yellow Ribbon” on trees, as well as wearing ribbons to symbolize their support. The campaign gained national recognition, appearing on World News Tonight and Nightline. It gained further recognition when Penelope Laingen, wife of Bruce Laingen who was the most senior foreign service officer being held hostage, tied a yellow ribbon around a tree on the lawn of her Maryland home. When the hostages returned home, people celebrated using yellow ribbons.

In the early 1990’s, the Yellow Ribbon reappeared during the Gulf War, along with the slogan “Support our Troops”, and other similarly minded slogans. Since then it has been used countless times as a symbol of support for the U.S. Military, often worn and displayed by proud Americans.
