for Veterans Day, Harley-Davidson announced Wednesday it

current and former members of the U.S. military.
According to the
announcement, the program is now available to active-duty,
retired, reservists and veterans from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2016.
All stateside military can

the expense of attending a certified motorcycle safety program.

form by Dec. 31, 2016, and will receive a voucher for free
motorcycle safety training, good through 2017 when they return
home, according to the Milwaukee company.
