J.B. Hunt Hosts Run for the Fallen Memorial
J.B. Hunt Transport Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: JBHT), one of the largest supply chain solutions providers in North America, is hosting the Arkansas Run for the Fallen Traveling Memorial for the third consecutive year through Nov. 16 outside its corporate headquarters in Lowell.
The memorial includes a 3x5-foot American flag and short biography for each of the 149 Arkansas service members who have died while serving since September 11, 2001. It is open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to walk among the flags and read about the lives of our fallen heroes.
“These Arkansans gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and we want to ensure that the Northwest Arkansas community has the chance to hear their stories,” said Eric Airola, chair of J.B. Hunt’s Veterans Employee Resource Group (VERG). “We invite you and your family to join us at our headquarters to remember these fallen veterans.”
Arkansas Run for the Fallen, the nonprofit responsible for the traveling memorial, works to memorialize fallen Arkansas service members and provide support to their families. The nonprofit also organizes an annual run that includes one mile for each Arkansan who has died while serving on active duty since September 11, 2001. The 9th Annual Arkansas Run for the Fallen is scheduled for March 20-22, 2020. The organization and J.B. Hunt are both contributors to Wreaths Across America, an annual nationwide effort to place a wreath on every National Cemetery headstone during the holiday season.
