This November we're taking some time to acknowledge the amazing professional drivers behind the wheel of our "True to The Troops Trucks." These individuals were chosen to drive trucks bearing custom-designed, large-format “wraps” that honor all branches of the military.
With Veterans' Day approaching, we're honored to take the time to renew our commitment to supporting all military veterans through activities like the True to The Troops program. We're especially honored that so many military veterans choose to join the CFI family as professional drivers as the integrity, commitment, teamwork and a strong work ethic ingrained through their military service are the same we value highly in our employees.
Our goal is to provide excellent career opportunities and a supportive, inclusive work environment that helps veterans achieve a smooth transition from the military to a quality job in the civilian sector. Out of CFI’s driver workforce, more than ten percent are U.S. military veterans.
Up next: Meet Michael Slack, Professional Driver and US Navy Veteran
Mike has been with CFI for over 3 years, and has driven nearly four hundred thousand miles in that time. He comes from a BIG military family - his dad is a 20 year Navy veteran, his three brothers have served in the Marines, Army, and Air Force, and his sister served 8 years in the Air National Guard. And its not just family history, the tradition is continued by his son, who is currently serving in the Air Force.
We thank Mike, and all of his family for their service, and are so happy that he has chosen to include CFI as an extension of their family.
