MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Wisconsin Marine got a surprise when he helped kick off Harley-Davidson's 110th anniversary party.
First Sgt. Timothy La Sage rode a new 2014 Project Rushmore motorcycle onto the grounds of the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee Thursday.
After La Sage's ceremonial ride, Bill Davidson - great-grandson of company co-founder William A. Davidson - told the Milwaukee native to keep the motorcycle.
The gift is to honor the sacrifices of La Sage and others in the military.
La Sage rode wearing the "Freedom Jacket." For the past year, the black leather jacket has passed from rider to rider and been around the world. The jacket will be back on display at the museum.
A two-time Purple Heart recipient, La Sage has served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, Somalia, Haiti and the Philippines.
