Supporting Veterans Year Round

It was an honor to support our nation’s veterans and service men and women at our first event in 2016. Veterans have a special place in our hearts, as R+L Carriers is proud to support the Lima Company Memorial, a traveling memorial of the Marine infantry reserve unit based in Columbus, Ohio, Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 25th Marines (Three Deuce Five or 3/25). Life-size mural paintings of the 23 fallen soldiers in this battalion travel the entire country, honoring all the men and women who have served in the United Stated Armed Forces. A complete schedule of events can be found on their website if you are interested in seeing the memorial in person. We highly recommend it.

The next event for the R+L Carriers Hometown Showcase will be at the Ohio Educational Technology Conference in Columbus, Ohio on February 9th – 11th. If you’re interested in having the Hometown Showcase deliver career opportunities to your community, contact us and let’s get rolling!
