I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force on September 12, 2001 and spent 9 years working all over the country and the world. After I separated, I worked in law enforcement for several years before finally deciding to do something that I've always dreamed of doing. I decided to obtain my CDL through Swift Transportation and their in house school. My training diary can be found here: http://www.truckingtruth.com/truckers-forum/Topic-17006/Page-1/swift-training-academy-corsicana-texas
I finished Swift's school and obtained my CDL, completed 250 hours over the road with an amazing mentor, and was assigned my own truck pulling reefer loads mostly on the east coast. I now work in a local position in Texas that allows me to be home every night and every other weekend with a 34 reset in-between weekends. For me, trucking is hands down the best job I've ever had and I'm thankful for every day that I'm able to do what I do.
