Task Force Movement’s Report

On April 5, Task Force Movement (TFM) for Trucking will publish the report, Life Cycle Pathways for Military and Veterans into Trucking. This report is the result of convenings, research, and collaboration over the last year with leaders in the trucking industry, academic institutions, government partners, and organizations serving veterans and their families. TFM’s goal was to identify best practices, solutions, and opportunities for recruiting, training, integrating, and retaining veterans in the trucking industry and developing a “playbook” for organizations and communities looking to better integrate veterans and their families into their existing programs.

Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services was honored to lead the convening of veteran-serving organizations that contributed to this report. Providing transitioning service members, military spouses, and veterans with a career and an opportunity to continue to serve in an industry that is vital to our country’s economic security is a great example of Work with Purpose. Stay tuned for the launch of the report and how you can access it. We are looking forward to TFM’s next goal—creating opportunities for veterans in cybersecurity.
