    Default A positive image !

    Thought I would post this story of a driver's good deed. His name is Danny Baker and he works out of the Greenville SC terminal.

    Company driver delivers happiness for 6-year-old boy
    On a delivery last June, Baker met a special kid, 6-year-old Sawyer White from Duncan, South Carolina. According to a thank you letter Sawyer’s mom wrote to ABF, Baker made quite an impression on the boy, and the kid (and his sister) made one on the trucker.
    Baker came back the next day to give the boy a die-cast ABF truck and a company cap. Baker also brought Sawyer’s sister Ellie a princess doll.

    “He made my day,” Baker said of Sawyer. The driver said that with all the daily issues of being a driver it was “a breath of fresh air” to see a kid so excited to see him when he made that delivery. “The joy that came across that young man’s face was without a doubt a highlight of my time at ABF.”
    “Danny does a great job for ABF and has received many thank you emails and call-ins to the terminal,” said Craig Crews, ABF’s service center manager in Greenville, South Carolina. “This young man made a true difference in Danny’s life as well by simply being (a) wide-eyed, excited young man that has a true passion for tractor-trailers.”

    Posting this as I feel it presents a positive image for truckers, and veterans.

    Joseph Campbell Wins Kenworth Truck as Part of Military Hiring Program
    Joseph Campbell stood on stage at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington on Dec. 6, fighting back tears. Just before he walked to the podium, he had hugged his wife, Debbie, his father, Joseph, and mother, Littie. The family had journeyed up from their hometown of Elgin, S.C., and had been anxiously sitting in the room waiting for the news in the Chamber’s famous flag room.
    On stage, Campbell, 47, was holding the keys to a new, fully loaded Kenworth T680 truck. Moments before, he was named the winner of the Transition Trucking: Driving for Excellence Award, which is given out annually with the Chamber’s Hiring Our Heroes division, Kenworth and Fastport, a national group that assists veterans with finding careers after they leave the military. The award recognizes rookie truck drivers who also are military veterans.
    In January 2000, four years after leaving the Marines, Campbell re-enlisted, this time in the Army. During his 24 years in uniform in the two branches of the service, he deployed to Iraq in 2003 and served at several major military installations including Fort Knox (Ky.), Fort Bragg (N.C.) and Fort McCoy (Wis.). Along the way, he earned two bachelor’s degrees and a masters in performance management.
