Podcast: Tribute trucks pay homage to the military, veterans

November 9, 2023

|

There is a strong bond between those who serve in the military and those who serve our country behind the wheel of a truck. We recently spoke with two drivers who have tribute trucks to honor service members and the fallen. Also, we look at one of the Veterans Community Project’s newest campuses in Longmont, Colo., with the help of Jennifer Seybold, its executive director. Then, we catch up with several OOIDA employees who have a special connection to the military. And across the country, local governments had ballot issues dealing with transportation. We have the results.
