PRINCIPLES

The principles below provide the outline of the intent for the volunteers whom serve our military men and women under Truckin 4 Troops.


Never make a promise that you cannot keep.

If given the privileged to serve a wounded veteran, do it with your all and nothing less.

Most importantly, it is never about you – it is always about them.

NATIONAL WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA DAY

 

Truckin 4 Troops is a proud sponsor and annual supporter of National Wreaths Across America Day, which is a movement to cover all veterans’ grave markers with a Christmas wreath. The observance is designated annually on a Saturday in December by Congress.

Remember. Honor. Teach. This is the mission of Wreaths Across America. By coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery and other veterans cemeteries around the country, Wreaths Across America strives to remember our fallen heroes. The day honors those who serve. And it teaches our children about the sacrifices made by veterans and their families to preserve our freedoms.

Independence Fund

The Indy Fund was originally started in 2007 by because of the observations of its founder that neither the Department of Defense nor the Veteran's Administration were sufficiently providing some of the most severely mobility challenged veterans (spinal cord injured, triple and quadruple amputees) with the state of the art wheelchairs that they deserve. Since then the Independence Fund has provided more than $700,000.00 in mobility devices to deserving veterans of the War on Terror.

Their mission is to provide the tools, therapies and guidance that those veterans severely injured in the War on Terror are otherwise not receiving.The wounded veterans who have returned from combat are not the same as they were before they deployed. Some are missing limbs, some have been shot, others have hearing or sight problems, or are experiencing post traumatic stress at extreme levels. They have been in a hospital for long periods of time, away from friends, family and life.
