U-C Coatings employees have been packaging posters for mailing, kicking off a project to benefit servicemen & women -- past and present.

The poster, titled “Vigilance and Sacrifice”, was designed by U-C Coatings to capture the strength of the American spirit in the face of attacks on freedom and democracy. Inspired by our nation’s enduring resolve in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the poster was originally created for use within the company.  


“We decided to share it with a wider audience, and donate a portion of any proceeds to veterans support organizations,” said Norm Murray, U-C Coatings CEO.  “It reminds us that Vigilance and Sacrifice truly do make up the fabric of American character and determination”. 


$5.00 from each poster sold will be donated: $1.00 will go to each of these five organizations:


Disabled American Veterans (DAV)
Special Operations Warrior Foundation
TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors)
Homes For Our Troops
Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund


In addition, U-C Coatings will send a poster, at no charge, to APO and FPO addresses (U.S. Armed Forces personnel serving overseas) to the first 5000 individuals to request it. 
Requests can be made by e-mailing UCC at V&


The unmounted poster is available for purchase online at for $16.95 each, including shipping.       click here for photo and more info
