ATA is proud to announce our relationship with the National Museum of the United States Army. The Workforce Heroes program had the incredible opportunity to get an early glimpse at the museum from Retired Lieutenant General Roger C. Schultz, before they closed their doors temporarily due to COVID-19.
"It was an awesome experience to drive the Workforce Heroes truck up to the museum. As a veteran, to see the past, present, and future of the Army was very humbling. Combining my passion for trucking and history as an Army veteran was such a humbling experience,” reflected Workforce Heroes professional driver, Sammy Brewster of ABF Freight. The Workforce Heroes program strives to create a stronger relationship with our Armed Forces, encouraging veterans to explore career opportunities in the trucking industry.
To highlight the importance of this relationship, ATA is sponsoring the Liberty Truck exhibit at the museum. Workforce Heroes professional driver, Nate McCarty of ABF Freight, touched on the exhibit and the importance of talking about the trucking industry’s history with the military. "I think it is a really neat partnership. The Liberty Truck acknowledges the great start of the trucking industry. World War I was where trucking really began to get their recognition, from the manufacturing of trucks to the development of humvees. I personally drove humvees and can attest to the importance of transportation in the Army. The fact that ATA can be a part of the story shows how important trucks are to the Army."
We encourage you to make a visit to this remarkable museum and learn more about the long relationship between the trucking industry and the United States Army.
