(NSI News Source Info) OSHKOSH, Wis. - June 2, 2010: The Armed Forces Foundation (AFF), together with Oshkosh Defense, a division of Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK), yesterday June 1., announced the winners of the custom-painted motorcycle grand prizes for the Rumble With a Cause sweepstakes. David Dingman, of Killeen, Texas, won the Army-themed bike and Skipper Lee Campbell, of Seguin, Texas, won the Marine Corps-themed bike. Dingman, a staff sergeant with the Army, and Campbell, a retired Marine with 14 years of service, received calls from Patricia Driscoll, AFF president and executive director, and Andy Hove, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Defense, notifying them of their grand prize win. The winners will receive their motorcycles at a special event in the Washington, D.C. area that will be announced and posted at http://www.rumblewithacause.org/ in the coming weeks. The sweepstakes ended on April 15 and raised more than $150,000 for the AFF, which provides assistance to active and retired military members, as well as their families. “Thanks to the support of many people, including the two lucky winners, the Rumble With a Cause sweepstakes was a great success,” said Andy Hove, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president and president, Defense. “We at Oshkosh believe strongly in giving back to the men and women who serve our country, whether they’re on the front lines or have returned home. The AFF does so much for military members and their families, and we are very happy to have been able to support the important services they provide.” With the support of Oshkosh, the AFF launched the Rumble With a Cause sweepstakes in October 2009. Oshkosh donated the two military-themed Harley-Davidson® Fat Boy® motorcycles as the sweepstakes grand prizes. Donations raised through the sweepstakes will support the AFF and its wide range of assistance to active and retired military members, and their families, including counseling, living expenses, funeral arrangements and housing improvements. While sweepstakes entries are no longer being accepted, those wishing to support the AFF and its many services can still make a donation through the Rumble With a Cause Web site at www.rumblewithacause.org or by texting AFF to 90999 to give $10.
