Military trucks are weird.
Great idea. Wonder if FL does it. Need to contact reps...
A win-win. Helping vets get work and filling a skilled profession shortage without hiring foreigners.
a skilled profession shortage without hiring foreigners......The shortage is because MOST applicants can’t pass the drug tests.
That seems to be an issue with quite a lot of hiring.
Framers are also in short supply. Our new house is held up by that. Jobs for CBees.
They’ll need to be retrained to learn manual transmissions. I don’t know of any US military trucks in the last 25 years or more that aren’t automatic transmission.
About time. I had A 53pax driver license (intel was slow after the Wall fell) that I could have used when I got out
Hunt use to try and get Vets to drive Trucks. They offered me a job with paid training. Those guys do well, there is lots of $$$$$$ in it.
