When I was younger, it was either get drafted or volunteer, so I volunteered. I wanted to be a paratrooper. So I did 2 tours of Vietnam as a paratrooper. I got out of the service on a Monday, and I started driving trucks on Tuesday. I had one kid, and another on the way. I had to support my family.
I’ve been at First Choice for 3 months now, and I like it. I’m 74 years old and have been driving for 48 years— I’ve been in all the states, and Canada. I’ve pulled about everything there is that you can make out there. The only things I’ve never pulled are explosives and LP.
I retired back in March from another company, but I remodeled my kitchen, and got me a new motorcycle, and I just got bored being at home. I talked to Steve about driving again and that’s what I’m doing. I like it a lot.
