This is the first time the non-profit is gifting a bike to a local veteran. The program’s 12th motorcycle is going to Rogue Valley Veteran Jed Morgan. Morgan served in Afghanistan and was hit with an improvised explosive device in 2012, losing both of his legs and injuring his right hand.
With his motorcycle now finished, it will be revealed to him in a ceremony in Los Angeles next week.
A special ceremony will also be held here at home on June 1st at the Jackson County Expo at 7 p.m.
