Newmar Lending Motorhome to Vets Roll Tour
Nappanee, Ind.-based Newmar Corp. will partner with VetsRoll.org to help honor our country’s veterans by lending a Ventana 4337 diesel motorhome from May 20-23, 2012 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 – owners of Finnegan’s’ RV Center, Inc. in South Beloit, Ill., since 1969 – will be piloting the Ventana. VetsRoll.org is a program which has raised funds since 2010 to charter buses to take WWII Veterans and the “Rosie the Riveters” (the ladies who entered the workforce in WWII, allowing our factories to continue running) to experience their memorials. The VetsRoll will start off on May 20 departing Beloit, Wis., 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, Vietnam and Lincoln Memorials; Arlington National Cemetery; Tomb of The Unknown Soldier; WWII Memorial in Washington. “It is truly a privilege to provide Vets Roll with my personal motor home 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.” Visit www.VetsRoll.org to donate or call 800-383-2267.
