VA Apprenticeship Program: A Company list (working)

I ended up waiting it out and getting a job while on terminal leave. I moved to Phoenix and started at a school on Monday and just got my permit yesterday! So in the next 2-3 weeks, if all goes as planned, I should have my Class A license.

I'm leaning towards Roehl, which is very close to where my school is and they offer two years of apprenticeship and drawing BAH, which I know some of the other companies only offer a year. Thanks again for this list though, because now that I have my permit I need to really start focusing in on which company I want to work for and which offers the best benefits for me.

VA Apprenticeship Program: A Company list (working)

I'd like to start by saying thank you for creating this list. I'm sure it is helpful for many vets considering trucking. It took me a while to know what to google to be able to find this thread though, I had no idea I could use my G.I. bill for a trucking apprenticeship, I thought it was only for truck driving school itself, up until a week or two ago.

I get my DD 214 in 43 days (but whos counting) and start my 55 days of terminal leave. I have an issue of not being able to start using my G.I. bill up until the end of my terminal leave, or there will be issues since I'm still active duty up until then. I want and need to get started with training ASAP when I start terminal leave.

Any advice for my situation? I was looking at different options and it appears swift has a training location right next to where I'm moving and swift offers scholarships for veterans, so training would be free and I'd not have to use any of my school benefits. I've read mixed reviews on swift, but is it a decent enough company to get my foot in the door and experience? Thanks for any replies.
