Volvo Trucks’ 2013 rolling memorial truck will join a motorcade traveling from Volvo’s New River Valley (NRV) assembly plant in Dublin, Va. to the nation’s capital during Memorial Day weekend.
The graphic design on the Volvo VNL 670 was developed by NRV and UAW Local 2069’s Veteran Committee.
Volvo employees at the NRV plant have been participating for more than two decades in the Run For The Wall motorcycle rally in tribute to America’s fallen military heroes and prisoners of war.
