There are so many veterans of our military services that have become, are becoming, and wish to become truck drivers. And I know they know that they are appreciated...but I just want to put this out there for them ALL to see, to make sure that they know, that I thank them for my freedom. I thank them for their sacrifice. And I thank them for continuing to show their pride in their self, their service, and their country.

Hey Starcar,

Thanks much for that. It is very appreciated indeed!

If you ever get a chance, go to Crete's website and check out their Patriot Fleet. Those rigs are awesome and a great tribute to our Nation's military!

Thank you Starcar. It was an honor to be able to service.

It has been an honor to be able to drive a truck all over this great land we call home (and get paid still to travel).

That is the part I like most, getting paid to drive all over this nation, see the sights (what we can from the big roads), and most of all the thanks I get from other drivers & the public for my service (I wear my US Navy Retired hat most of the time).

StarCar and others,

It was a pleasure to serve this great country of ours. And to all those who have served, are serving or will serve, thank you for your commitment and sacrifice!

Indeed thank you so much to everyone who has served our country!!! smile.gifthank-you.gif

I've gotta tell ya - the toughest part about trucking is adapting to the lifestyle and being able to handle the stress, the solitude, and the endless challenges you face day in and day out on the road. When someone new shows up here to get advice about the trucking industry and I realize they're either current or former military, it's great because I know I don't have to worry about that person being able to handle the lifestyle. I don't have to wonder if they'll crack under pressure, or be hard-headed and uncoachable, or shy away from the challenges.

Soldiers go through more just to get through basic training than most people endure in their entire lifetimes. But to stay with the military for years, endure everything that gets thrown at you, and come with your head held high is something I admire tremendously.

I promise you that never does a day go by in my All-American Dream of a life that I'm not thankful to my family & friends for helping me along the way, our police and firefighters for making our society safer, and above all our military for making all of this possible in the first place.

God bless all of you for everything you've given.


Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Well, my time in service ended more than ten, more than twenty, heck, more than THIRTY years ago; too long ago to be recognized as for any value on most job apps! Tell you what though, I'll be reaching back and leaning heavily on my experience as a submarine sailor to get me through living in a truck! That will still be of GREAT value to me!

Thanks for the thanks, Starcar!

Ya know there's a country song that says if it weren't for trucks we wouldn't have tailgates well if weren't for our armed forces and them men and women who served and made this country free and so nice to live in we wouldn't have the trucks to even think about a tailgate.so I have to thank y'all also.
