MINNEAPOLIS, MN (WMC) -

Thank a hero, and help a hero. That's the idea behind a new mission from Victory Motorcycles. Victory announced the "Thank A Hero" program on November 1st, the first day of Military Appreciation Month. 

Here's how it works. You simply go the Victory Motorcycles website and thank a friend or family member for their service. When you do that, the company will donate $100 to Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) on that veteran's behalf. 

Frank Barton, who owns the local Victory dealership in West Memphis said, "Victory has always recognized the important contributions made by our military. At Barton Powersports we appreciate the sacrifices these men and women have made so we can enjoy the freedoms we have in the United States."

“IAVA is proud of our partnership with Victory Motorcycles that’s helped us raise awareness for our community from Washington, D.C. to Sturgis, SD," Anthony Pike, IAVA Chief Programs Officer and USMC and Iraq War Veteran, said. “Victory’s ‘Thank a Hero’ initiative will take that effort one step further and will help IAVA achieve its goal this Veterans Day of uniting Americans behind our veterans. We cannot thank Victory Motorcycles enough for their continued dedication to the Post-9/11 generation of veterans and generosity that supports IAVA’s work on behalf of our over 400,000 members.”
