Oh Say Does That Star-Spangled Banner Yet Wave.....

Take a look around and you'll find miles of beautiful countryside. Pristine lakes and parks for picnics. There's places for hiking, beaches for swimming, and restaurants serving up some of the best eats around. From east to west, a traveler is privy to some of the most amazing sights one could imagine. Our culture is one of kind, too. Americans are like no others. When times are tough, we work together. When help is needed, we rise to the occasion. When the fireworks light up the sky, we remember our heritage and rejoice in the freedoms we share. 

Let's face it, the upcoming holiday will probably be like no other we've experienced. And as surely as the night passes into day, the dynamics of our celebrations will leave an imprint on our hearts. Those things that make us who we are we will remember. For instance, drivers will continue to uphold their responsibility of keeping goods safe and making sure they arrive to their destinations. It's a heroes role and truck drivers everywhere are sure answering the call. We can all be thankful for that. As Al Pacino said in The Irishman, "If you got it, a trucker brought it." Solidarity is a valuable thing.

This year, we are witness to a world of challenge and to history in the making, like new heights of the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, those in the trucking field, like Deborah Lockridge, in her article on truckinginfo.com, are discussing the concerns for drivers in this unprescendented moment. We are a mighty nation with devout individualism, but it is important for drivers everywhere to stand their ground and follow the close guidance of their dispatchers, company managers, and national health leaders.

Above all else, in times like these, we remember what it truly means to be American. At Millis Transfer, we not only celebrate the love of our country, but we celebrate our continued dedication to the trucking industry and our team of professional and responsible drivers.
This Fourth of July, join a company that honors America. Join a company that values you. To learn more about available opportunities, give us a call at 1-800-937-0880. Happy Fourth of July America and thank you drivers for all that you do.
