Milwaukee Harley – Davidson

VA Benefit Counseling Provided Free of Charge by Disabled American Veterans

Military veterans in the Milwaukee area can receive free counseling and assistance with their government benefits when a Disabled American Veterans Mobile Service Office rolls into the Milwaukee Harley-Davidson dealership, as part of its 2007 Harley’s Heroes™ Tour. The 2007 Harley’s Heroes™ Tour will include stops throughout the U.S. including over 150 Harley-Davidson dealerships where benefits assistance will be offered to veterans of all ages in communities where they live.

The mission of the Harley’s Heroes™ Tour, made possible with the help of a $1 million grant from the Harley-Davidson Foundation, is to provide access to benefits for all veterans and show appreciation for their service and sacrifice to our country. While on the 2007 tour, the DAV MSOs will provide benefits counseling to those veterans who suffer from service-connected injuries but may never have filed a claim for benefits or have found it difficult working with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Miss Hawaiian Tropic State Semi Finals Contest will also be held in the afternoon, and there will be food and beverages available.

The Importance of DAV to Veterans Injuries suffered during military service sometimes take years to manifest or go years before being undiagnosed. Many veterans have their injuries go untreated or uncompensated because they do not understand how to work with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Thanks to the DAV’s free services veterans can get the help they need.
