Schneider Delivers into National Cemetery for Wreaths Across America

This past Saturday, Dec. 15, Schneider National's military-themed truck, the Ride of Pride, embarked on a special mission to deliver 5,000 wreaths to Arlington National Cemetery. The annual Wreaths Across America program included 110,000 wreaths delivered and laid upon soldiers' graves by volunteers. Schneider Ride of Pride driver and U.S. Army veteran, Greg Roberts of Eastpointe, Mich., participated in the wreath-laying ceremony to promote veterans' remembrance. (See attached photo of Greg laying a wreath on a soldier's resting place.)

Because similar wreath-laying events were held throughout the country on Saturday, Schneider National also delivered nearly 10,000 wreaths to Ft. Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio.

Schneider National, one of the nation's largest truckload carriers, has been involved with Wreaths Across America's annual wreath-laying effort since 2010.
