Sturgis SD – 78th Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™ Presents Sergeant First Class (Retired) Dana Bowman.

In 1994, while serving as a member of the U.S. Army’s elite parachute team, The Golden Knights, a mid-air collision cost Dana Bowman both of his legs. His determination in the Army, and now the civilian world, has earned him world-wide recognition as a motivational speaker and skydive demonstrator. Traveling the world, Dana spreads his message, “It’s Not the Disability, It’s the Ability! Never Quit.” Dana will be offering a free presentation to the public on Saturday, August 4 at 11:00 AM in the Community Center Theater.
