"Our partnership with TCA allowed us to bring the names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial home to hundreds of thousands of visitors in 2017,” said Zimmerman. “Leading the way into each community was a truck owned and operated by a TCA member showing dedication and commitment to America’s veterans - and to our nation.”
