Newmar Partners with Vets Roll

Nappanee, Indiana-based Newmar Corp. will partner with VetsRoll.org to help honor America’s war 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, Illinois, since 1969—will pilot the Newmar Ventana.

VetsRoll.org is a program which has raised funds since 2010 to charter buses to take World War II veterans and “Rosie the Riveters” (the ladies who entered the workforce during the way to allow factories to continue running) to experience their memorials.

The VetsRoll tour will depart Sunday, May 20 from Beloit, Wisconsin, at 5:59 a.m. with up to 200 veterans.

The 2012 tour consists of:

  • Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania
  • Iwo Jima Marine Memorial
  • Korean, Viet Nam, and Lincoln Memorials
  • Arlington National Cemetery
  • Tomb of The Unknown Soldier
  • World War II Memorial in Washington, DC.

Newmar Lending Motorhome to Vets Roll Tour

“It is truly a privilege to provide Vets Roll with my personal motorhome 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.”

The mission of VetsRoll.org is to give veterans the gift of thanks and memories for the incredible sacrifices that they made in the name of freedom so many years ago, said Finnegan.

Worth Pondering…

My heroes are those who risk their lives every day to protect our world and make it a better place—police, firefighters, and members of our armed forces.
