Mack Trucks employees will participate in the Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom Rally during Memorial Day weekend to pay tribute to America’s fallen military members.

This year, Mack’s Ride for Freedom truck is a custom-built crew cab called Jack Mack, named after John “Jack” M. Mack, one of the founders of Mack Trucks.

The 30th annual rally takes place in Washington D.C., and Mack Lehigh Valley Operations and Mack Customer Center employees will travel from Pennsylvania by truck and motorcycle to Hagerstown, Maryland for a special memorial ceremony at Mack’s Powertrain Facility.

Hagerstown employees will then join their colleagues following the ceremony as they continue to the nation’s capital for the Ride for Freedom event.

The Rolling Thunder Ride for Freedom Rally was started in 1987 by Artie Muller and Ray Manzo, two Vietnam veterans. Many participants are veterans and many ride motorcycles as a demonstration to honor the country’s fallen military members and those captured or missing in action.
