Since this country was born approximately 1,354,664 soldiers have died defending her. On top of that approximately 1,498,237 have been wounded and 40,917 are listed as Missing In Action. Memorial Day is set aside to remember the sacrifice of life in the defense of this great nation. As we gather together with family and friends this holiday let us remember that it is so much more than just a long weekend. It is a remembrance of the lives of the brave souls who sacrificed all to obtain, defend and protect our liberty. Even today we are engaged in a war for our freedoms and liberties. Sadly, this battle is more against our own government than any foreign enemy. I wonder sometimes if the soldiers who died in those early wars would be as willing to make that sacrifice if they could see where this nation is now and where it seems to be headed. I don't care if you are a Democrat or a Republican, the labels mean nothing...if you call yourself an American you need to be alarmed at the state of affairs in our country. You need to be ****ed off at both parties and you need to be as willing as the first American soldiers were to make a new start. I'm not saying we should take up arms and march to Washington D.C. but I am saying that a total of 469 out of 535 seats in the House and Senate are up for reelection in 2016. As important as the presidential election is, election is..if you really want to honor the memory of all the soldiers that died founding and defending this nation..vote every damned one of the incumbents out of office and let's start over!! Sorry for the rant, but my heart is broken for this great nation and I just had to say something. I want you to know that in this day, when every group is offended by every other group, I don't give a damn if I offended anybody. And finally....DON"T DRINK AND DRIVE!!!1tevlin0810.jpg?h=630&w=1200&fit=crop&bg

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

EPU:

Electric Auxiliary Power Units

Electric APUs have started gaining acceptance. These electric APUs use battery packs instead of the diesel engine on traditional APUs as a source of power. The APU's battery pack is charged when the truck is in motion. When the truck is idle, the stored energy in the battery pack is then used to power an air conditioner, heater, and other devices
