Truckers for Troops veterans

I. Today’s news with Terry Scruton

OOIDA says no way to an under-21 pilot program; Volvo goes electric; and why did the bear cross the border? It’s today’s news in trucking.

II. Founder describes Veterans Community Project

It’s day 1 of the 2020 OOIDA Truckers for Troops campaign – the Association’s annual effort to raise money to send care packages to troops overseas, and now to help homeless veterans by supporting the Veterans Community Project. One of the founders of that organization, Vincent Morales, explains a few of the basics about the project.

III. Veterans helping veterans

One of the things that sets Veterans Community Project apart is that most of the people who run it are veterans themselves. Glenda Hernandez talks about what the program has meant to her – and her current role in helping veterans adjust to coming home.

IV. Truckers show their support

Scott Thompson stops in to OOIDA’s Membership Department to find out what truckers who are calling in are saying.
