SUMTER CO., GA (WALB) -

The United Auto Workers showed off their new Big Rig as part of The Ride Home.

This Ride for Freedom Tractor is a rolling tribute to servicemen and women.
This year's them is Land, Sea, and Air.
The designer says the themes are provocative, educational, and have a healing power.

"This year's particular truck represents more of our Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, our newest veterans that are coming back to public society to work,” said Mark Peterson, Veterans Chairman for United Auto Workers Local 2069. “We want to welcome them home."

The truck visits Veterans Venues on the east coast throughout the year.
