I am very new to this forum site and I want to pass along a whole lot of "Atta Boys" to the moderators on this forum. Since joining Trucking Truth I have been nothing short of amazed at their knowledge of the topics presented, fairness to all replies posted and their control of a very organized and professional forum. I also like to visit some other forum sites and their lack of control concerning posts is lackluster at best. The fact that posts are first checked before being allowed to be posted is great. I just wanted to again say thank you for a great site.

TBH, moderator on this site is more an honorary title. Brett is the Monarch of his kingdom. Brett bestows the title of Moderator to those he feels goes above and beyond consistently to help out new drivers. All of us mods have taken the ground work and have done all we can to become successful. We in turn impart what we have learned to help those that follow to become successful as well.

Agreed. I've only been around here for a few days and already I'm amazed by how professional and courteous everyone is. This is a great community!

While what Patrick is stating here is true in the sense that we don't have any authority to delete posts or even allow certain posts, but we do have a big responsibility to set the tone in here. Brett depends on his Moderators to help him lead and guide the conversations in a direction that is truthful and honest in their approach to helping folks understand how to sort out the misinformation that is so prevalent and confusing to those of you who are just trying to get started in this rewarding career. Without their much appreciated efforts he would be taxed beyond his limits. So, I think he considers those of you who are Moderators as much more than just an honorary title. He doesn't make you a Moderator just because he wants to bestow an honor on you, but rather because he has found you to be helpful in his efforts at sharing the truth about entering this career.

Well as I stated and started this post, Brett has done a fine job in his ability to set this forum in the right direction and to have a great bunch of "mods" to help with all the questions or comments that may arise. You may all take a well deserved bow for you have earned it. I am very glad that I found this site and hope to continue for a long time. After all being retired now is almost boring after 45 years and over 3 million miles across this great land. No one can ever say that truck drivers are among the best people out there.

Patrick C., I see by your sign in that you are from Clarksville, Tn. My son-in-law is stationed at Fort Campbell and is a Blackhawk Pilot and my daughter works on base in the hospital. Just a small world and I wanted to ring in on that.

Thanks for the compliments Harry!

This is all 100% true. You guys and gals are already busy enough running the highways and answering questions here so I don't further burden anyone with approving or deleting comments and all that baloney. But there's way more here than I could handle by myself. The moderators here speak for TruckingTruth, which I've spent 10 years of 70 hour weeks building to get it where it's at today. So if I trust and respect someone enough to make them a moderator you can be sure that's a very big deal to me.

I was stationed at Ft Campbell for many years. Pretty much from 2002 - 2013. I was a Blackhawk Crewchief / mechanic.
