In December, 2010, we knew that we wanted to help American military servicemen and women and their families in any way that we could. We started with the thought of helping out a military family who was struggling financially and help them with their Christmas gifts. We then started discussing ways to show military families and veterans that we appreciate those who have sacrificed for our country.
To support Military Families, Wounded Warriors, and Veterans! We want to give the ultimate thank you for their service and empower them to know that fellow Americans are appreciative of what they do to defend our country.
Since 2010 we have helped out thousands of service members and their families with everyday struggles and beyond. We have taken it as our duty to step up to the plate and sacrifice whatever it takes to recognize those who have made the ultimate sacrifices for our country.

March 14th is Officially Proclaimed Truckin 4 Troops Day in the State of Maryland by Governor Larry Hogan.
“You guys aren’t just like an organization; you guys are family to me,” Truckin 4 Troops founder Scott Mallary recalled a wounded veteran telling him. Mallary did not start the Millersville-based foundation for those kinds of relationships, but rather because he saw a need to get wounded veterans active and reintegrated into day-to-day life. That those close relationships arose is a testament to the impact Truckin 4 Troops has had on the wounded veterans it has helped. Another testament: Governor Larry Hogan declared March 14 Truckin 4 Troops day in Maryland.
“The governor deeply respects our men and women in uniform,” press secretary Erin Montgomery noted. Accordingly, Hogan was happy to have the opportunity to honor Truckin 4 Troops and help its cause. Among the representatives from Governor Hogan at the Classy in Camo gala were the governor’s daughter, Jaymi Sterling, and Maryland Secretary of Veterans Affairs George Owings, who presented the proclamation.
Mallary said he played no role in Hogan’s proclamation. In fact, Mallary did not even find out about the proclamation until the day it was released, March 14, which was also Truckin 4 Troop’s Classy in Camo gala. Though surprised by the honor, Mallary was thrilled with the recognition. “I thought it was pretty cool, pretty special,” Mallary conveyed. “It’s pretty cool to have a day recognized by the governor. He believes in what we do.”
