These two Freightliners represent the tenth generation of trucks produced for the Ride of Pride Program.

Rolling Thunder uses the Ride of Pride trucks to further their mission of public education relating to prisoners of war and those missing in action. As a non profit, Rolling Thunder supports veterans and their families through the donation of food, clothing and other daily life essentials.
