Veterans day greetings to all you Iowahawk readers who are current or former members of the United States military, especially my nephew Rick who just returned safely stateside after finishing his second tour in Iraq. My awestruck gratitude for everything you have done for our nation. As a small token of my appreciation, please enjoy this video (Courtesy Laura Vecchio from Harley-Davidson) of pulchritudinous Marisa Miller getting her patriotism on astride some Milwaukee heavy metal. At ease, soldier!
Harley has a long history with the military, and Laura informs me they have declared November "Military Appreciation Month." Events include some cool appreciations for America's vets, including a special thank you section on the Harley-Davidson web site and free military-themed swag at participating H-D dealerships (including free pinup calendars of the aforementioned Miss Miller for those with a military I.D.).
Harley is also teaming up with Maxim magazine the "Harley Salutes the Military Contest," which gives active or retired personnel the chance to win a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle of their choice... delivered personally by Marisa. Rrrowrrr! Plus a trip to Las Vegas. Visit http://www.maxim.com/salutes to enter.
If the winning vet turns out to be an Iowahawk reader, I will travel to Las Vegas to personally present him/her with a special bonus prize: an open bar tab. Dave's treat! Good luck and sincere thanks to all of America's Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines.
