Ten Years Overseas! It's time to come home...

Hey All, That's right! I've been here in a combat zone for 10 years...either here in Afghanistan or in Iraq. My time is almost finished here working as a civilian contractor. Today I decided that I would look into what being a truck driver is all about. The more I research and read about it...the more I like the idea. I know I won't make near the money I've made here working overseas...I've had a good run here. All wars must come to an end some time.

My hope is that I will come home soon, so I'm studying now for my CDL with endorsements. I'm single...no family ties...so nothing is holding me back from doing this. This is my first time on this website and I have to say...there's alot of good stuff here that I have intention on using to help me be successful. I'd like to thank the gentlemen who made this website...lots of great information and tools here. To those who are doing what I'm doing...getting ready to make this career a reality...Best of Luck to you!. Make it happen! I know I'm going to give my all and my best effort!

Mark C. Field Engineer II Afghanistan

Come home soon, bro, and best of luck to you.

About Us

TruckingTruth was founded by Brett Aquila (that's me!), a 15 year truck driving veteran, in January 2007. After 15 years on the road I wanted to help people understand the trucking industry and everything that came with the career and lifestyle of an over the road trucker. We'll help you make the right choices and prepare for a great start to your trucking career.
