Oshkosh Defense will be participating in a jam-packed month of events planned across the country as it continues its support of the Armed Forces Foundation’s Rumble with a Cause sweepstakes. The campaign has a goal of raising $150,000 for AFF while providing the opportunity to win one of two custom-painted motorcycles. The AFF provides a wide range of assistance and services to active and retired military members and their families, including counseling, living expenses, funeral arrangements, housing improvements, and career counseling.
One recipient of the organization’s services is retired U.S. Army Captain Mark Little, who lost both of his legs below the knees following an improvised explosive device attack in Iraq in 2007. While recovering in the U.S., Little and other wounded veterans were taken on a getaway vacation to Las Vegas as part of the AFF’s Morale, Welfare & Recreation Program. The program provides moral support and diversionary programs for service members and their families to help cope with the stress of deployment and injury or loss of a loved one.
With the support of Oshkosh, the AFF launched the Rumble with a Cause sweepstakes in October 2009. AFF employees will be on site at a number of events across the country to collect donations and sweepstakes entries. The sweepstakes, which closes on April 15, will have two winners, each receiving a one-of-a-kind Harley-Davidson Fat Boy, donated to the AFF by Oshkosh Defense. Those not able to attend the events may enter online at the official site. It’s only a $10 donation per entry, and even if you don’t end up walking away with a Harley, you’ll still walk away a winner.
