U-Haul Sponsors NYC Parade As Cheerios and Papa John's Honor Veterans

Posted by Mark J. Miller on November 11, 2011 10:01 AM

U-Haul was founded by World War II Navy vet L.S. "Sam" Shoen and his wife Anna Mary Carty Shoen. Even if there have been some major family troubles along the way, the company has never forgotten its roots.

The company will sponsor today’s Veterans Day Parade in New York City. It has “designed and dedicated five vibrant military SuperGraphics (to put on its parade trucks) to honor the five branches of the military — Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard, and to show our support for the men and women who have served and are still proudly serving in the armed services,” according to a company release.

The company will also pay tribute to those who died on Sept. 11, 2001, as well during the course of the parade. Spectators along the route will also receive small flags as well as “Support Our Troops” ribbon magnets, the release states.Continue reading...
