I’m a Navy veteran who served six years. My last tour of duty was at NAS Pensacola, Florida as a Jet Engine Mechanic for the Blue Angels. Been trucking for two years now. As of 12-16-16, is when I became an owner /operator after being the inaugural winner of the Transition Trucking Driving for Excellence Award. Winning the grand prize; a 2016 KW T680 has changed my life. Werner made me an Operation Freedom Driver in which myself and Werner designed a wrap honoring our fallen and disabled vets. I still pull freight freight for Werner Enterprises, train students, ambassador for Werner, Kenworth, Fastport and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce-Hiring Our Hero’s Foundation. I’ve been pretty busy this year and I’m excited to see who will win this year’s competition. I’d like to thank all of our veterans who’ve served and are serving currently and to all of the drivers that help Keep America Moving, thank you and be safe!
