An old fire truck can tell a new story: Buy American-Made

Posted by scapozzola on 01/25/2013

Aaron Lorell and Tim Morris set out from Washington DC in early January in an old fire truck.  They're traveling across the country to encourage retailers to sell more American-made products.
They want big box retailers like Walmart and Target to put their American-made items in a special section so shoppers can find them more easily. They also want those retailers to offer more products made in America.
