Kruchten is the first of eight honorees that will get bikes this year. Sandoval is asking every American to nominate a military member—past or present—who has dedicated their life to protecting our freedom by submitting their story of sacrifice, strength and courage of service. His cross-country mission aims to thank those who have served, and are serving, to protect our freedom by giving away eight Harley-Davidson motorcycles. A panel consisting of Sandoval, Wounded Warrior Project representatives and Harley-Davidson leadership will select which seven other deserving military members will be honored with new motorcycles. The honorees will also receive a lifetime membership to the Harley Owners Group and they can give a free Harley-Davidson Riding Academy class to a loved one.
