This past week, in commemoration of Memorial Day, Con-way Truckload was fortunate enough to provide transportation for an important symbol of appreciation for veterans who served in the Vietnam War — The Wall That Heals. The Wall That Heals is a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and a mobile education center which travels the country educating civilians, honoring veterans and allowing the public to pay their respects to those who served.
This year marks the 40nd anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War and many Vietnam veterans are still alive today. A number of Vietnam veterans are employed by Con-way.
Beginning on Memorial Day, one of our True to the Troops trucks, and Vietnam veteran driver, Tomy Fox, began transporting the wall to locations in Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. Below are a few photos of the set-up, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Our next stop will be at 1:30 p.m. at the Con-way Freight facility in La Salle, Illinois, for all those who are interested in attending.
