TMC Transportation Honors Veteran Employees

 

In  celebration of Veteran’s Day, TMC Transportation held an event in recognition of its more than 600 military veteran employees. At the event, TMC introduced a new military decal recognition program.

 

As part of the new program, each military veteran within the fleet will have a decal added to their truck that identifies him or her as a veteran and signifies their branch of service. Office and shop employees will proudly display their decal on tool boxes or by name plates.

 

“We are proud of our veteran employees and their contributions to the United States Armed Forces,” says Harrold Annett, CEO and Chairman of TMC. “We have always had a strong commitment to supporting our active military and reserves, as well as providing job opportunities for transitioning military. We know more than ever how important it is to support these men and women and we wanted to recognize them for all they have done to protect our freedoms.”

 

TMC’s military recognition program goes hand in hand with its pledge to hire 500 veterans by 2014 through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Hiring Our Heroes program. “Hiring veterans has always made sense for us and we want to show veterans the many opportunities available to them in the trucking industry,” says Glen McCravy, Executive Vice President of Risk Management and Human Resources.   “We try to make their transition into a driving career as easy as possible. Our training program is VA-approved which allows veterans to draw on their GI Education benefits while going through our apprenticeship program. We also offer a fast-track program for qualified veterans who are recently discharged and held a transportation MOS while in the armed forces.”

 

More than 30% of TMC’s fleet is comprised of veterans, many of whom are National Guard and Reserve. TMC is dedicated to supporting them while on active duty and is honored each year by the Iowa Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) for its support of these employees. For the past 11 years, TMC has sent care packages each Thanksgiving to TMC employees and employees’ family members on active duty.  Each year the company also supports The Home Depot Foundation Doing More For Veterans and Wounded Warrior Project.
