          HAVA Yamaha Viking VI

          Yamaha Outdoors has donated a Viking VI Side-by-Side to Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) for use with the disabled veterans and injured active military which it serves.

          Yamaha, an original HAVA founding company, and one of its largest sponsors, donated the $15,000 vehicle to allow HAVA to better accommodate the needs of its veterans for off-road transportation, particularly during hunts in remote locations. The first use of the new SxS was during an early-December elk hunt near the NRA Wittington Center which hosted 10 disabled participants in the snow and freezing temperatures at altitudes above 10,000 feet.
