The HER Project - Honor, Encourage, Recognize - We Salute Women in Military Service

Written by  September 30, 2014

We are dedicated to a single purpose: empowering and creating awareness for our American Women Veterans with respect and dignity. HONOR, ENCOURAGE, RECOGNIZE (HER).

We have many goals for this project but first and primary is to create awareness and hope, to give women veterans and their families 100% of our acknowledgement and recognition of their service and to help show our gratitude for what our women veterans have done for our country.

We plan to accomplish this by building two motorcycles: dedicated to the Disabled American (Women) Veterans and the National Women Veterans Assoc. Recognizing the American Women Veteran, educating the public about the great sacrifices needs of women veterans who, by virtue of their service in the military of the United States of America, may be having difficulty transitioning back to civilian life.
