[RideApart] - Retired Air Force Medic Awarded New Harley

Retired Air Force Medic Awarded New Harley

Lisa Benjamin, a retired Air Force medic, was in for a big surprise at Cowboy’s Alamo City Harley-Davidson in San Antonio, Texas last week. Lisa was awarded a 2018 Harley-Davidson Model Street Glide Special, powered by the new Milwaukee Eight Engine. The surprise moment was part of MISSION: "THANK YOU" – a cross-country tour led by Adam Sandoval to celebrate the men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting our freedom.

Lisa Benjamin enlisted after the 9/11 attacks and served as an Aeromedical Evacuation Medic in the Air Force. She was deployed in Iraq in 2003 – before she was even truly eligible to deploy she was sent as a replacement for an injured crew member, where after only six months of training she stepped up and excelled. During eight years of service, she deployed to Iraq, Germany, and flew rescue missions when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.
