Mack Employees Honor Fallen Military Heroes Through Ride for Freedom
GREENSBORO, NC (May 22, 2015) -
Mack Trucks employees will honor America’s fallen and missing military personnel during the 28th annual Rolling Thunder® – Ride for Freedom rally, which takes place Memorial Day weekend in Washington, D.C. Employees from the Mack Customer Center and Macungie Cab & Vehicle Assembly, both located in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, will travel by truck and motorcycle to Hagerstown, Maryland for a special memorial ceremony at Mack’s powertrain plant. Following the ceremony, Hagerstown employees will join their colleagues as they continue to the capital and join thousands of other Ride for Freedom participants. A Mack® Pinnacle™ Axle Forward Rawhide Edition was used as the basis for the tribute truck and features custom graphics celebrating each branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, elements of the American flag and the motto, “A Beacon of Hope to All.”
