Denali Harley-Davidson gathers messages for troops on H-D flag


Denali Harley-Davidson has partnered with the Army National Guard to thank troops stationed overseas for their service.

“They have a huge Harley-Davidson flag and a silver paint pen,” Sgt. First Class James Corbin, a recruiter with the Army National Guard based at the recruiting post in downtown Wasilla, Alaska, told the Frontiersman.

Dealership manager Paul Ramage says lots of people have stopped in to sign their names and write personal greetings on the flag.

“It’s getting full,” he says. “But that’s good. We wanted as many people to sign it as possible.”

The flag has the standard Harley logo on it, along with the number of the unit it is destined for — Bravo Company 1-207th Aviation, an Army National Guard unit deployed in Iraq, Corbin says.

“We have a lot of veterans coming into the store,” Ramage says. “The owner and myself are both veterans.”
