Generous Donation Helps Fuel the Lima Company Memorial
Wilmington, Ohio 5/24/2016 - On Wednesday, May 18, R+L Carriers and Lima Company Memorial gathered in Lafayette, Indiana for the unveiling of the new Lima Company Memorial hauler. The new hauler, initiated by R+L Carriers as a commissioned project, evolved into something much bigger; a generous donation from Wabash National Corporation and 26 additional vendors.
About the Lima Company Memorial: The Lima Company Memorial, the Eyes of Freedom, started with a vision of artist and creator Anita Miller. With the help of the family members of the fallen and the returned Marines of L3/25, she created 23 life-size murals, depicting the fallen of Lima 3/25. The Eyes of Freedom is now a traveling memorial that rallies the public around one common theme, saluting our great military who sacrifice with their commitment.
Mike Strahle, Director of the Lima Company Memorial, and representatives from R+L Carriers presented a token of their appreciation to Brent Yeagy, Senior VP of Wabash Commercial Trailer Products.
“The interest from Wabash International makes what we do possible,” said Greg Bronner, VP of Marketing at R+L Carriers. “A strong tradition of support from individuals, foundations, and corporations have built the Lima Company Memorial into one of the country’s largest traveling memorials, which honors both the service, and sacrifice of our nation’s military men and women. Our mission would not be possible without the tremendous support from the numerous foundations and private individuals who believe in our commitment to generate awareness and serve communities nationwide.”
