Many describe veteran, Clifford Baldowski as brave and selfless.

That is just one of the many reasons that Harley-Davidson teamed up with Adam Sandoval to surprise Baldowski with a brand new, Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

The surprise left Baldowski in disbelief.

He says, "The last thing I won, when I was 14, was a cassette tape. I've never won anything else in my life."

Baldowski has spent six years away from his family in service to the United States. He is set to retire in January with over 26 years of experience as a master rated aviation maintainer and airborne jumper. 

This surprise is made possible by "Mission Thank You", an initiative that focuses on giving back to military members.

Behind this initiative is the creator of ScootinAmerica, Adam Sandoval.

He says, "Our military gives up so much every day. We don't do enough as a country to support them. This is just one more way that we can come together, honor our veterans, and change some lives."

Sandoval plans to give away five more motorcycles. You can nominate someone, who has served here
