One common theme that resurfaces in the trucking and transportation industry; veterans make great drivers. More and more carriers and state and federal government are finding ways to make it easier for veterans to get their CDLs and get back to work.
One company that is doing its share to hire veterans is Werner. On February 22 they unveiled their new Operation Freedom truck. The military themed vehicle will be driven by David Conkling, not only a veteran of the U.S. Army, he has recorded one million miles of safe driving at Werner ; proving the consensus that veterans make great drivers.
