As we all remember and thank those who have served our country this Veterans Day, Melton would like to especially distinguish our veteran drivers. Melton recognizes your tremendous work ethic, positive outlook, team-oriented attitude, loyalty, and commitment to both your trucking career and representing our country proudly. Melton has engaged in a continuous effort to hire veterans because of these exceptional qualities and aims to provide a future full of boundless opportunities in trucking.
By enabling a smooth transition from military service to trucking careers, Melton strives to serve our veterans by providing a profession in which they can utilize their military skills immediately following their exit from service. We believe that, ultimately, acting in providing for America’s most brave individuals by giving them a smooth path from military service into a civilian career is crucial and overwhelmingly necessary.
Although Veterans’ Day is a reserved day of remembrance and
honor, Melton is continuously searching for means in which we can award our veteran drivers and office employees throughout the year. For instance, we introduced a military challenge coin and Vietnam pin distribution program to our active military members and veteran staff this summer. We have since continued the program by issuing all new hires and current veteran drivers the challenge coins and Vietnam pins to those who served in that era.
In an industry with growing variability, veterans are a stabilizing force amid a changing industry climate. Melton sincerely appreciates our veterans’ service and is grateful for their lasting commitment to our company and for serving our country so courageously.
