Rocky Proud To Partner With National Veterans Memorial and Museum

NELSONVILLE, Ohio — Rocky Boots, an industry leader in military footwear manufacturing for more than 80 years, is proud to partner with the National Veterans Memorial and Museum in Columbus, Ohio. Monetary support from community partners like Rocky enables the museum to recognize the experiences of veterans, sharing stories that honor, connect, inspire and educate countless people each year.

“We recently took a company outing to the National Veterans Memorial and Museum and our entire organization felt strongly that the museum was a cause we should support,” said Mark Dean, VP of Rocky’s commercial military division. “Rocky Boots has always worked closely with the military and individuals serving, so as a local company, it makes perfect sense for us to support the museum and the stories of our veterans.”

The National Veterans Memorial and Museum opened to the public in October 2018 featuring more than 50,000 square feet of exhibits, memorials, meeting space and classrooms. The museum’s mission is to carefully preserve not only the names, dates, and battles but the intimate memories, personal belongings and painful losses of our nation’s veterans.

Rocky Boots began supplying footwear for the military servicemen during World War II and produced more than one million pairs of boots during that conflict and the Korean War. Popular styles among servicemen and women today include the Rocky S2V and the new lightweight C4R boots. For more information on Rocky military footwear, visit www.rockyboots.com.

    Wow… that looks pretty awesome. The old Vet’s Memorial (same site) left a lot to be desired. I had no idea this was happening – then again I haven’t lived in Central Ohio for nearly fifteen years, nor do I go anywhere near downtown if I do happened to be in the Columbus area.
