VAN BUREN, Ark., April 24, 2017 — USA Truck Inc. (Nasdaq: USAK), a leading capacity solutions provider headquartered in Van Buren, Arkansas, is transporting a mobile replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, The Wall That Heals, from Norfolk, Virginia, to Bridgeport, Connecticut, as part of the Wall’s national tour.
Driver Team Member Mark Buckley picked up the trailer on Sunday, April 23, and is currently en route for a two-day layover at the USA Truck headquarters in Van Buren, April 27-28, before continuing to Bridgeport for a May 4 opening. One of many veterans currently driving for USA Truck, Buckley served in the Navy for eight years. He earned his commercial driver’s license by completing the carrier’s student program in 2007.
“We are honored to serve the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund by providing safe transportation of this important display. Serving veterans is a priority for USA Truck,” said President and CEO James D. Reed. “We selected Mark Buckley for this task based on his outstanding safety record. He began his career with us as a student and is now one of our driver trainers. Mark is also on our Drivers Advisory Board and has accrued over 800,000 safe driving miles.”
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial stands as a symbol of America’s honor and recognition of the men and women who served and sacrificed their lives in the Vietnam War. The Memorial is dedicated to honor the courage, sacrifice and devotion to duty and country of all who answered the call to serve during the most divisive war in U.S. history. The half-scale replica of The Wall and a mobile education center spread The Wall’s healing legacy to hundreds of thousands.
