Newmar will partner with VetsRoll.org to help honor our country’s veterans by lending a Ventana 4337 diesel motorhome from May 20-23 to use as the pilot vehicle for the 10 Prevost charter coaches filled with veterans and support staff traveling to Washington, DC. President of VetsRoll.org, Mark Finnegan and his family (family owners of Finnegan’s’ RV Center Inc. in South Beloit, Ill., since 1969) will pilot the Ventana.
VetsRoll.org has raised funds since 2010 in order to charter buses to take WWII veterans and the “Rosie the Riveters” (the ladies who entered the workforce in WWII to keep the factories running) to experience their memorials.
The VetsRoll will start off Sunday, May 20, departing Beloit, Wisc., at 5:59 a.m. with a total of up to 200 veterans.
The 2012 tour consists of:
- Flight 93 Memorial, Shanksville, Pa.
- Iwo Jima Marine Memorial
- Korean, Viet Nam and Lincoln Memorials
- Arlington National Cemetery
- Tomb of The Unknown Soldier
- WWII Memorial in Washington
“It is truly a privilege to provide VetsRoll with my personal motorhome for use as a command center to assist with organizing their trip to Washington D.C.”, said Matt Miller, president of Newmar Corp. “Honoring these veterans of our great nation, who have served as far back as World War II, on their trip to our nation’s capital is tremendous. I’m glad to be a part of this event in some small way.”
VetsRoll.org mission is to give the veterans the gift of thanks and memories for the incredible sacrifices that they made in the name of freedom so many years ago. Visit www.VetsRoll.org or call 800-383-2267 to make a donation.
