Driving down the road, the man or woman behind the wheel of the truck you just passed could have, at one time or another, served his or her country as a member of the U.S. military.
“Truckers News” wants to recognize them on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
Today there are almost 22 million veterans of the U.S. armed services in this country, according to the Census Bureau. Almost 9 million of them are part of this country’s workforce and about 11 percent of them work in the trucking and affiliated industries.
Veterans are finding many of the skills and the discipline they learned in the service readily transfer to life as a truck driver. Companies are actively recruiting vets and the federal and state governments are making it easier for them to get in the driver’s seat.
On Veterans Day, Nov. 11, “Trucker’s News” will publish a salute to veterans, and we want you to be part of that tribute. Click here to share a photo of you in uniform from your time in the military and tell us a little bit about yourself.
Army. Navy. Marines. Air Force. Coast Guard. National Guard. Truckers News wants to salute all of you, and recognize you for your service to your country.
