Making the move from the military to civilian life? Transitioning from a career in the military back into the civilian world can be a stressful period of your life. Veterans leaving the service often struggle to match their skills with a civilian career. The good news is that the truck driving industry is experiencing tremendous growth! The number of truck drivers needed to fill these positions in the next ten years is expected to reach 175,000. The disciplined, get-it-done mindset that our armed forces instill in its service men and women has proven to be an ideal match for truck driver training and a career as a CDL professional. Truck driving and truck drivers are the lifeblood of our country as more than 80 percent of all U.S. communities depend solely on trucking for delivery of their goods and commodities**. Professional truck drivers serve America every day by providing the goods we use from toothbrushes to tires – you served your country, now help us keep America moving!
As a full-time truck driving employee, you can enjoy the benefits that full-time drivers are offered such as medical & life insurance, 401k, paid holidays, vacations, and plenty of opportunities for advancement. First-year drivers average up to $58,000-$70K* their first year. A majority of professional truck drivers are able to get home weekly to their families.
In order to get the benefits started, the veteran or another eligible person will need to file an appropriate application. For veterans who have never used their benefits, the appropriate application is VA Form 22-1990 or VA Form 22-5490 for other eligible dependents. For veterans who have used their benefits previously, the appropriate application is VA Form 22-1995 or VA Form 22-5495 for other eligible dependents. Please have the veteran or other eligible person submit the appropriate application over the Internet. This will ensure that there will be no interruption in receiving the application. The applications can be found on Veterans Administration’s website. There is a link on the front page to apply for VA education benefits.
