Janece Hutchins from Driver Solutions Facebook page asks: What is the one thing that you did not expect about this career path that really made you smile?


Hi Janece and thanks for the question!

Well, at first I didn't think truck drivers got much respect out there on the road. We have a tough job and I wish more people would realize this. But, I started wearing my U.S.S. Carl Vinson hat way more often and I have had soooo many people thanking me for my service. I served during the 1st Persian Gulf War (not in Theater) and I truly appreciate all the people thanking me for my service. Makes me smile every time!

Take care and be safe,
