TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Workers at the Tifton Harley-Davidson are showing their appreciation for the military. 

 They held their first Military Appreciation Day. Retired and active military from Moody Air Force Base, the Albany Marine Corps Logistics Base, and Warner Robbins Air Force Base got a chance to test out motorcycles, get some free food and drinks, and win Harley-Davidson accessories. 


"It's really a way for Tifton Harley-Davidson to give back to the military to those people who go out and fight for this country because it's a country worth fighting for,” said Brandon Keeter, Tifton Harley-Davidson General Manager. 

 "I found out that Harley-Davidson was putting on this appreciation event,” said Aaron Gordon, active military with the United States Air Force. “ So, me and a few of my good friends rode up together to show our support for Harley since they're showing their support for us.” 

 Military personnel also got discounts on Harley Davidson products. The Tifton Harley-Davidson General Manager says they plan on making Military Appreciation Day an annual event.
