History of the Ride of Pride

The Ride of Pride originated in 2001, when Ed Keeter, a shift manager and U.S. veteran at Freightliner’s manufacturing plant in Cleveland, N.C., proposed the project as a way to honor military veterans. It quickly became part of a national effort that includes participating in major events like the annual Ride for Freedom (Rolling Thunder) and Wreaths Across America.

Schneider has shown a great commitment to the U.S. military since its very beginning. Freightliner is proud to share this special vehicle with a carrier that feels as strongly about those who serve as we do.
