Volvo Trucks Pays Tribute to Military Heroes During Memorial Day Ride for Freedom
Volvo Trucks once again rode to the nation’s capital during Memorial Day weekend as part of the Rolling Thunder® - Ride for Freedom rally. Volvo employees at the New River Valley (NRV) assembly plant in Dublin, Va., have been participating for more than two decades in the motorcycle rally in tribute to America’s military heroes who laid down their lives in service of the nation.
The graphics on this year’s truck focus on the emotions – faith, hope and despair – of a prisoner of war (POW). The custom design illustrates the comradery and brotherhood of POWs and is also a way to recognize the National League of POW Families. NRV developed the graphics for the Volvo VNL 670 in conjunction with UAW Local 2069’s Veteran Committee.
