Polaris Chairman & CEO Scott Wine Receives IAVA Award For Ongoing Support Of Newest Generation Of Military Veterans

Scott-WineIraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) presented Polaris Chairman and CEO Scott Wine, a U.S. Navy veteran, with the 2015 IAVA Civilian Leadership Award in recognition of Victory Motorcycles’ contributions as a strategic partner to IAVA. Wine, a 1989 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, received the award at the ninth annual IAVA Heroes Gala held Nov. 12 in New York City.

Victory Motorcycles, a division of Polaris, is in its second year as a strategic partner to IAVA, and has provided financial contributions and helped raise awareness for IAVA by providing the organization with exhibit space at major motorcycle events such as Daytona Bike Week, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and motorcycle shows from coast to coast. IAVA honored Wine for Victory’s significant support, and for his role in the expansion of Polaris Defense, a division that provides products including deployable advanced ground off-road vehicles used worldwide by U.S. military personnel. IAVA also honored U.S. Army veteran Daniel Rodriquez at the Heroes Gala, presenting him with the 2015 IAVA Veteran Leadership Award. Stephen Colbert, host of “The Late Show” and a past recipient of the IAVA Civilian Leadership Award, attended and spoke at the 2015 gala.

“IAVA is extremely excited to honor Scott Wine and Daniel Rodriguez for their incredible contributions to the veterans community,” said IAVA CEO and Founder Paul Rieckhoff. “Each fall we look forward to the Heroes Gala, where we celebrate our new greatest generation of veterans and those who have shown the utmost support for them. Scott Wine is a dynamic business leader who has also dedicated himself to working to propel the work of IAVA and supporting and empowering our nation’s veterans.”

Along with “The Road Home,” Victory proudly supports military personnel, military veterans, and first responders with “Hero’s Metal,” which provide these individuals with $1,000.00 off the price of any new Victory. Complete details are available at Victory dealerships and at Victory Motorcycles.

    Any amount of public support (even simple recognition) for Veterans is long overdue.

    Thank you Polaris.
