Altoona, PA – 9/6/19 – Employees of Ward Transport and Logistics as well as local dignitaries gathered to unveil a new patriotic trailer, FREEDOM ONE, to honor our veterans and thank them for their service. Ward employees as well as the Ward family have a long time history of military service, with long time president, G. Bill Ward and his grandson, current vice-president, Bill Ward Jr. having served in the Navy. Congressman John Joyce and Commander of the local War Veterans Council, Lloyd Peck, were on hand to help dedicate the new trailer.
Freedom One will be traveling the Ward system as part of a new initiative to attract and recruit military veterans to the over 1,400 strong Ward TEAM. “Ward specializes in in-house training programs for drivers and mechanics to help recruits obtain the proper credentials and skills for the job. These types of programs are an excellent fit for military members transitioning out of the service”, said Bill Ward Jr. “As a veteran, it is so great to see the company I work for honoring those that have sacrificed so much,” said Bill Bettwy, Director of Marketing.
