Jesus man give it up already the VA has some great options for therapy I suggest you take them up on that instead of using this forum for you obsession for confrontation. And again just how you called Brett a "POG" you call him a coward which is also exactly how you are acting. Members of this forum stopped responding because they stopped caring and probably think you're just some freak behind a keyboard shouting obscenities. Brett did you a favor by changing your name back. He is trying to help you and will continue to do so. I suggest you take if being a truck driver is something you really want.

I'm not sure how long you've been out for but I have for a few years now. And it is something you will NEVER fully adjust to. And that's okay I had some issues myself to overcome after getting that affected all parties involved but once I you over those I have never been happier. And today I am making the most I ever have in any job as a truck driver. Good luck to you Josh and hang in there

Josh why are you wasting your time on this forum?

Notice that most of us “Super Truckers” have grown tired of your bad behavior. Better things to do with our time.

Honestly you are beyond our help and need to look elsewhere for assistance. Don’t even consider this career until your head is screwed on straight. Hopefully the system as designed will continue blocking your entry into trucking. They are quite good at recognizing applicants that have zero chance of success. Your recent experience is proof of that.

And by the way Josh, as indicated by a previous reply, many of the companies you have already talked to and/or might in the future, monitor this forum on a regular basis. Don’t kid yourself into thinking that your belligerence goes unnoticed by people that can influence your future employment.

Some real mumbling, stumbling vocab in my last post. What I meant to say was

" I have had some issues myself to overcome that affected all parties involved meaning family and friends. But once I overcame those issues I have never been happier. And today I'm making the most money I ever have in any job as a truck driver. And I out can too,".

Auto fill strikes again...

I think Brian meant to write to Josh; “if I can do it, so can you”. (???)

Josh, Brian may be one of the fortunate few in this forum who first-hand understands “where you are” and how to turn things around.

If you listen to no one else in this forum, I urge you to Brian’s advice. Reread his replies...

I am embarrassed. I know I should not be, but when I see fellow vets act this way it embarrasses me. I looked at this thread today and was hoping to see some good info on the military apprentice programs. Instead I found a vet acting like a child.

Even I as a hopeful driver saw the red flags in the OP post. He was wanting the Military apprentice program but didn't want anything to do with Snyder.....who is kinda known for that program since they advertise it in the military magazines,l. All because his school recommended them he said he wanted nothing to do with Snyder.

Next he said that recruiters lie to people and inferred that his Army Recruiter had lied to him. Over my 20 yr active duty military experience I huard this BS a thousand times. When you ask the guy who is making the claim you find that the person made assumptions or took an answer of "will some people dont end up in the middle east but...." and they decided that means that they are never going to deploy, or other nonsense. They hear what they want to hear.

Lastly if OP doesn't think that 15 years of experience in a career is enough to give advice or training than what did you do when your NCOs with 4 years of experience told you how to do something? If you came to me with that Attitude while we were active duty I would have made sure you had plenty of training......

Hey Will, I delivered a load in Hamden, CT today. It looks like you're located near there. I go to Hamden regularly delivering to a company called Spec Rail or Porcelan.

Old school. Ya I go to school in New Haven, but I live near Norwich about a hour away. Maybe one of these days I can by you a cup of coffee at the travel center.

It's a small world when you're a truck driver. I used to make deliveries to Freeport McMoran in Norwich. I'm in Connecticut at least twice a month.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Hey parrothead no "sir" needed but thank you for thanking haha. I never knew how to respond to that.

And Will I say thank YOU for your service as you served for much longer than I. And brought up great points especially your last in regard to Brett's experience. I was thinking the same thing 15 years in the Marines you would be a minimum a Staff Sergeant maybe a Gunny, and if you spoke to them like Josh did to Brett immediate non judicial punishment, and a blemish on your record but of course Josh's response would be "were not in the military anymore I'm a civilian now that doesnt matter your a pog don't be a pus!!!! Blah blah blah.

End of the day there was no reasoning with Josh this post would of went on till the end of time if Brett allowed it to but thankfully didn't. And I don't think you have to be too embarrassed here Will because I think the members here are smart enough to know that just like there are bad apples in our trucking, unfortunately the same goes for the military and Josh does not represent all of us. Or I should say did not represent us with his actions I'm certainly not discounting his service either.
