Dart Network Podcast: Owner-Operator Pat Wortham Talks About His Wreaths Across America Run
Over the weekend of December 17th, the volunteers with the Wreaths Across America program placed more than 1.2 million wreaths at the gravesites of those who dedicated their lives to military service. Participating as a carrier in the program for the seventh consecutive year, the Dart Network was quite visible in a campaign that involved a host of carriers working with the Truckload Carriers Association to move more than 400 truckloads this year.
Joshua Channel, Mark Bouchard and Pat Wortham – the three owner-operators who were presented with the keys to new military-themed leased trucks during a ceremony on Veterans Day at Dart – participated in the Wreaths Across America program. Not only did Joshua, Mark and Pat have a mural of the Marine Iwo Jima Memorial on their trucks, but they also were pulling military-themed trailers with the message “Freedom is Fragile” displayed on the side.
