Harley-Davidson Becomes a GreenZone Hero Sponsor



Harley-Davidson has signed on as the exclusive motorcycle sponsor of GreenZone Hero, which identifies businesses committed to being veteran-friendly.

As a lifetime sponsor of GreenZone Hero, Harley-Davidson will be listed on the GreenZone Hero “Founders” page, and each Harley dealership across the country will have the opportunity to have its own page on the organization’s website.

“Harley-Davidson has a long history of supporting the military,” said Tim Budzien, Harley-Davidson’s Director of Membership Programs, in a press statement. “We’re honored to sponsor GreenZone Hero as a thank you to all those who have dedicated their lives to protect our freedom.”

A “green zone” is a safe place in a combat zone and GreenZone Hero provides a “safe” place for veterans, their families and friends to do business. With more than 25 million veterans residing in the United States, the GreenZone Hero goal is to secure a company’s reputation as an active and dedicated supporter of our U.S. veterans. GreenZone Hero gained momentum in 2016 and currently lists veteran-friendly businesses in more than 25 states across America.

GreenZone Hero founder and Army veteran John Krotec said: “Harley-Davidson exemplifies the business spirit towards all military and veterans – an American Legend. I believe the soul of Harley-Davidson was created by the spirit of our military.

“The Harley-Davidson brand connotes a sense of strength and stability, something veterans need after serving. Our goal is to help make the connection between our veteran-friendly businesses and American patriotism and liberty,” added Krotec.
