Meet John Jackson from Jacksonville, Arkansas.
National Truck Driver School Graduate of the Month
for January 2011.

John served 13 years in the United States Marine Corps as a Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear Defense Specialist. Wow…not that’s impressive! John, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your service to our country. We, at National Training, proudly support our troops and the sacrifices you make for our freedom.

John also told us that his father is a retired Army Soldier and served as an M.P. (Military Police). Again, in support of our troops, past and present, and John’s father we thank you for what you gave up for the rest of us. This goes out to your families as well. Their sacrifice is just as great, if not more, as the service members.

Having served in the military for so many years John developed a work ethic that can be described as strong and independent. This is what the military teaches you; to be strong, work with a team but confident in your own abilities to get the job done on your own. One thing about military life…you’re always on the go. Your day to day life can be extremely busy and exciting so getting out of the military and converting over to a civilian lifestyle can be quite difficult if a service member can’t find a suitable job that provides similar stimulation.

This is why John chose a career as a Professional Truck Driver. Being a Professional Class “A” CDL driver has many similarities to military life. Don’t get us wrong…very few jobs in the civilian workforce can compare to being an active service member in the United States military. Trucking has many aspects that appeal to service members. As John put it when we asked him why he chose to become a Professional Tractor Trailer Driver he said “Challenge, Independency, be my own boss and success is based on what you put in is what you get out”.

This is exactly the working attitude of our military service members.

During John’s time with National Training he worked with our Career Services Department. Through our strategies and relationships we’ve developed with Motor Carriers over the years John was able gather job leads from several companies.

 

Other memorable moments John had while at training was his experience on the backing pad learning the skills to maneuver a 53’ truck and trailer into tight little spaces…going backwards. Actually, the backing course seems to be the most challenging for people however we must admit it’s more of a mental hurdle than an actual skills hurdle. John says he will have nightmares for years. He’s kidding of course. Although challenging the backing course is NOT overwhelming. Our instructors have been teaching people for over 3 decades now how to safely and successfully maneuver the trucks into position. Even John passed as you can see. Just listen to the instructors and you will do just fine.

Well everyone we hope you enjoyed John’s story and wish him good luck with his career and congratulations on becoming National Truck Driver School Graduate of the Month.

John, we want to personally thank you for your service to our country and the sacrifices you and your family have made for our freedom.

Please come back to visit us sometime and bring your truck.

Thank you,
National Training, Inc.
