U-Haul Supports Veterans in New York, Phoenix Parades


U-Haul International Inc. will support the nation’s veterans and troops as a sponsor of the New York City and Phoenix Veterans’ Day parades on Nov. 11. Founded by World War II Navy veteran L.S. “Sam” Shoen and his wife, Anna Mary Carty Shoen, U-Haul has designed and dedicated five of its vibrant SuperGraphics trucks for the four branches of the U.S. military: Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. A fifth truck depicts the “United We Stand” SuperGraphic to commemorate the events of 9/11. As this year marks the 60th anniversary of WWII, the New York parade has been designated by the Department of Defense as the Nation’s Parade to honor its veterans.

U-Haul is also a sponsor of the “Thank You for Serving” project headed by the United War Veterans Council. The project involves creating a video and message boards containing words of love and support to be sent to each military base throughout the world. During the parades, U-Haul will encourage participants and spectators to sign the “Thank You for Serving” board, writing messages of encouragement to those overseas. For more information, visit
