Decorated Veteran Buys Sixth American Coach
A decorated military veteran has purchased another American Coach motorhome, the company reported.
According to a press release, distinguished World War II and Vietnam veteran LeRoy Manor recently purchased his sixth new American Eagle and has also owned two American Dreams. A retired three-star-general, Manor flew 72 combat missions during World War II, including the Normandy invasion as a P-47 fighter pilot with the 358th Fighter Squadron in Europe.
His service has been recognized with the Purple Heart, Distinguished Service Medal, Legion of Merit and Distinguished Flying Cross. After Manor’s retirement from the military in 1978, he represented the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the United States Pacific Command as the senior military negotiator and advisor to the US Ambassador to the Philippines.
“We’re not only honored that LeRoy Manor has chosen eight American Coach products to be companions along his journeys, and we’re humbled to count among our owners such an esteemed military veteran,” states John Draheim, CEO and president of Fleetwood RV Inc. and American Coach.
