We were honored to be able to assist in the Wreaths Across America again this year. We will be providing two motor units to help this year. Tony Hamilton in TCI Transport truck 100 will be leaving Sunday with the Escort with a 6 stop load. He broke away from the main convoy to other cemetaries in NJ, NY and VA.
Isaac in TCI Transport truck 200 was in the Escort path to assist in unforeseen problems that may require motor power.
All of us here at Trucker Charity Inc are honored to be able to assist in this great event honoring our veterans. If you do not know about Wreaths Across America. Please visit there web site. http:www.wreathsacrossamerica.org
Live update On the phone with Tony, he's saying people are lined up anywhere they can stand or park a car to wave the convoy by. Waving flags, blowing kisses, hoot'n and holler'n. One tanker parked along the road with a flag draped on the tanker that was half the size of the tanker.
The little towns have their fire departments meeting the convoy as it rolls past with lights going and horns blowing.
The representing companies have sent their cream of the crop up there. John Christner sent their 25th anniversary truck. Driver's of the year for companies like Whitte out of Missouri and Walmart are part of the team.
This convoy is about 3 miles long, the cars are pulling over as they are met on the road. Their on Hwy US 1 going from Columbia Main to Bangor Maine. Their first stop took 10 mins where they had the convoy stop on the highway as they performed a ceremony in East Holden ME at the Elementary School where they dropped off the wreaths for the town's fallen.
Tony says it's a very emotional experience.
There's a tech school's media class riding with the convoy filming the whole event for their class project. Their facebook page is
