SOUTH BELOIT, Ill. — Newmar Corporation has loaned Vets Roll a motorhome to use as its lead vehicle for the next trip to Washington, D.C., May 22 to 25.
This is the fifth consecutive year that Matthew Miller, president of Newmar, has supported Vets Roll, a non-profit group that transports World War II veterans and Rosie the Riveters to Washington to view the World War II memorial. The group also visits Arlington National Cemetery, the Korean, Vietnam and Lincoln memorials as well as the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base museum.
“VetsRoll 7 is less than four months away and planning is going crazy with logistics that would make your head spin,” said Mark Finnegan, founder of Vets Roll and owner of Finnegans RV Center. “Although they haven’t decided what coach we will get at this point, we are just thrilled to know how much Newmar supports our program and the generation that has allowed our industry to grow and prosper.”
The Newmar motorhome will serve as the “mothership” that will pilot the caravan of 10 Badger Charter Coaches across the Eastern United States. Dozens of veterans will make the trip that often includes police escorts along the way.
