Melton Truck Lines, a premier air-ride flatbed carrier based in Tulsa, OK, held an honorary veteran and active military member recognition ceremony on Thursday, July 27th at 11:30 a.m. The event included the presentation of customized challenge coins to military members along with an official pinning ceremony for Vietnam veterans.
“We are honored to provide veterans with access to great careers and we find that military culture and our company culture are linked with connection points that include the value of teamwork, discipline, dedication, and an adventurous spirit. Veterans and military members’ continuous commitment to making a difference, whether it is through their military service or their employment at Melton, is incredibly admirable and certainly worthy of recognition,” said Melton’s Chairman & CEO, Bob Peterson.
The event hosted members from numerous community and military organizations including FASTPORT, Volunteers of America, Tulsa Vet Center, Tulsa Chamber of Commerce, Tulsa Tech, National Association of Publicly Funded Truck Driving Schools, and Tulsa Workforce. Following the ceremony, Melton also provided a Veteran Appreciation Lunch from 12:15-1:30 specifically for the honorees.
