Victory Hero's Metal offer
From Marine Corps commandant Gen. James F. Amos delivering the key to a donated Victory Vegas 8-Ball to a Marine in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan, to limited-edition accessories honoring the armed forces closer to home, Victory Motorcycles pays its respect to veterans all over the globe.
For all members of law enforcement, firefighters and military personnel do for us — including our friends up north of the border — it just made sense to pay them back with something more than a nod or a statement.
The Victory Hero's Metal offer continues the streak of special discounts and applies to U.S. and Canadian military personnel, police officers and firefighters — active or retired. It's just one more way Victory is giving thanks to those whose job it is to be heroes.
Look for yourself. Just search for "Victory Motorcycles" and "veterans," and you'll see. Whether it's donating a Vegas 8-Ball to a hometown hero or pledging $1 for every demo ride taken for a full year to the Wounded Warrior Project, Victory Motorcycles gives to the one and the many alike. The WWP received a total of $100,000 at the 2012 Sturgis rally.
Victory and its parent company, Polaris Industries, have made it clear that these acts aren't overpublicized, glitzy, call-every-reporter-in-town events. They're often quiet donations as a way to thank veterans, the groups that work on their behalf and the first responders here at home.
Victory and Polaris have teamed up with or donated to Operation Gratitude, the Wounded Warrior Project, the National Guard, the Salvation Army — the list goes on.
It's paying forward everything these brave men and women do for us. It means American hands on American parts making an American motorcycle for riders all over the world. It means bringing things back to basics: hard work, attention to detail and always improving. Victory Motorcycles was the result of working as hard as possible to get every little bit of quality onto the road.
It's the least we could do.
