About the Rolling Memorial Truck

Road Scholar debuted this awareness truck in 2011, just in time for the 10-year anniversary of the attacks.  On one side of the tractor, dubbed “Unit 911,” lays an image of the Freedom Tower.  On the other side, written in red, are the names of the 1st responders, creating the red stripes in the Flag of Honor, with the Statue of Liberty in the background and the phrase “Have You Forgotten?” the title to a Darryl Worley’s country song.  The hood of the tractor displays an enlarged version of the 9/11 Heroes Stamp.

The trailer, which has brought tears to many eyes, contains the names (nearly 3,000) of all those who lost their lives as a result of the 9/11 events.  These names surround an image of the World Trade Center, which overlays the American flag in the center of the trailer.

Each corner of the trailer pays tribute to one of the planes that were hijacked (Flight 93, United Airlines Flight 175, American Airlines Flight 77, and Flight 173), with a list of the crew and passengers who passed away on each particular flight.

Since its debut, Road Scholar’s Rolling Memorial truck has been asked to make several appearances at events across the country.  Last September 11th, our truck was at East Stroudsburg University of PA where disabled first responder James Hagner strapped on a harness and pulled the 36,000 lbs tractor trailer to help raise money for the FealGood Foundation, which aims to assist 9/11 first responders who were injured and their families, along with helping to spread awareness about the catastrophic health effects 9/11 had on these individuals.

And that’s the not the only awareness truck Road Scholar has in memory of the victims of Sept. 11th.  Check out our Flight 93 truck and others at http://www.roadscholar.com/awareness-trailers/.

We hope to see you at the event next month!
