Ryan,

I can't answer your question direct; but perhaps somebody can.

I DO know of a company that hires for H/H ... and prefers 'dual status' right here in Ohio.

Transport National.

If you have time, look them up. You know, I wish you the best. I still don't understand why Bison won't put you through 'their' finishing training, honestly. (Unless it's because you ticked them off on FB?!?) Bison is THE BEST dual company . . . I'd still call and get the right person... and BE NICE, and professional with them. They are all over the place, they have many acquisitions in place, and yada yada yada. Wish you well.

Just me,

~ Anne ~

Canada's Armed Forces are different from the US Military. It's been 40 years since I've talked with Canadian military.

Go talk with a recruiter or whatever you have that enlists young people. Tell them what you want and see if they can accommodate you.

Wait! Your dad would not allow you to go to OTR , but will allow you to join the military, with the possibility of foreign deployment? I’m sorry about what I’m going to say please don’t take it the wrong way. Your first step should be talking to your dad and resolve your issues with him. You are a grown man in his mid-twenties, at some points your parents have to let you go. You have to decide your future, of course parents can and do provide guidance, however, they should not be able to hold your hand for you. You are grown man, so put on your big boys pants and start acting like one. No more excuses, no more blaming game. At the end of the day, you are the one that has to work for your future. As we say here in Miami, grow some cojones and get to work.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Ryan has not said that his father would let him join the Military. I think his dad would be against that also knowing what Ryan's issues are. I believe that Ryan has not thought about it much, but may have read someone's post about driving trucks in the military and that gave him the idea.

Ryan, ... here's the Curmudgeon's 2 cents worth (US, probably valued more Canadian) If you are able to enlist, do it. The likelihood / possibility of a deployment is a definite, but you will be trained for that. The self confidence, ability to function in a high stress environment, self discipline, and make-it-happen attitude that military service (no matter the nation) can develop in a person will serve well in later life, whether you drive a big truck, a fire truck, a squad car, or an office chair.

I'm a believer in serving your country. It's what keeps the free world free.
