Volvo tribute trucks honor military heroes

Updated May 30, 2018

Employees at Volvo Trucks’ New River Valley (NRV) assembly plant in Dublin, Va., unveiled the 2018 Ride for Freedom truck featuring the new VNL 760. The tractor, accompanied by a custom-designed Volvo VNR 640, led a motorcade of more than 150 motorcycles from the plant to Washington, D.C., during the annual “Run for the Wall” Ride for Freedom motorcycle rally Memorial Day weekend.

This year marked 27 years of NRV employee and UAW Local 2069 Veteran Committee support of the Ride for Freedom event, now in its 31st year.

Volvo says the custom-designed graphics on the VNL 760 long-haul tractor honor America’s military heroes of all branches with the slogan, “All gave some, some gave all…some still give.”
