"As a proud American company, Wabash National Corporation appreciates the sacrifices our military men and women, with the support of their families, make to protect our freedoms," said Wabash National Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Dick Giromini. "We are honored to have more than 300 military and veteran associates across the country, and we proudly pay tribute to them on our new Wall of Honor at the Ehrlich Innovation Center."

In addition, the company presented a $5,000 donation to the Lafayette Armory and U.S. Army Reserve Center.
