The Dart Network celebrated Veterans Day by hosting a special event at its Eagan, Minnesota headquarters to honor drivers who served or are members of the United States military.
The program included the unveiling of three Kenworth trucks and three Hyundai trailers with military-themed wraps. Dart’s Chairman of the Board Donald Oren, presented the truck keys to owner/operators Mark Boucher, Joshua Channel and Pat Wortham.
The three were selected from a pool of retired and active members of the military. A committee conducted interviews with the finalists before offering the invitations to lease the new trucks to Boucher, Channel and Wortham.
The trailers will be used with special events, including Dart’s participation in convoys, parades, and Wreaths Across America in December.
Dart also announced that all of the owner/operators who entered to lease the military trucks will be offered the opportunity to be guardian chaperones for the next Honor Flight in Minnesota. The Honor Flight is a national program that flies World War II and Korean War veterans to Washington, DC. to visit memorials on the National Mall.
