Harley is a self proclaimed redneck. He’s located in Erick, OK and is pretty much the main attraction of the town. Harley invited us into his… well, I don’t know what you would call it… establishment (?), served us some beer, came onto us a little, played a stirring rendition of “Get Your Kicks on Route 66” and then talked with us about how he appreciates the work of the men and women of the military. All in all it was an interesting day.

The Operation Route 66 team interviews Ken Hansel a firefighter we met outside of Springfield, MO. We’ve been talking to citizens who haven’t served but want to deliver a message to our veterans. It’s been very rewarding and we’ll keep doing it as we head west! Check us out in Amarillo, Tucamcara, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Flagstaff, Kingman, Joshua Tree, and Los Angeles/ Santa Monica.
