Wisconsin Company Honors And Donates To Veterans
A trucking company in Wisconsin recently showed their support and appreciation for the U.S. service veterans by wrapping its semi- cab trucks to salute different branches (Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and Air Force) of the military. But they were eager to do more.
Headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Contract Transport Services showcased their five wrapped in national spirit semi- cabs to the world and has also announced to donate 2% of each loaded mile the trucks drive to local charities, benefitting local veterans.
Curt Reitz, the president of CTS, in many interviews highlighted the reason behind this great cause saying, “CTS is a strong, local company committed to helping the community. Our goal is to give back as much as we can to the local men and women who have sacrificed so much for the well-being of our country.”
Recalling his personal experience in the Air force, Reitz felt it was time to give back to the community. He said, “I was in the Air Force myself and I just have a lot of respect for what they [veterans] allow us to do every day. This is one of the best ways we can think of to support our local veterans. Many trucking companies look to hire veterans, and CTS is taking the initiative to help them. For that, we are very proud.”
The local charities which will benefit from the 2% donation the trucking company promises include:
• Fox Valley Veterans Council: A council that provides emergency fund for basic needs such as housing, clothing, utility bills and transportation to local veterans, their families and those who are still serving the nation.
• Northeast Wisconsin Veterans Treatment Court: This institution helps the veterans to get used to the society by providing counseling through mentors. The institution also has an employment assistance program as well as many treatment programs to help veterans cope with post-war challenges.
• Help to Heal: A small retreat camp in Carr Lake, Oneida County which helps veterans to relax and rest after they are back from war or those who are suffering from psychological and service-health related issues.
Not only that, CTS will also be working with the Northeast Wisconsin Military Officers Club to set a scholarship fund for the children of these area veterans who have lost a parent to war in Afghanistan or Iraq.
“This is one of the best ways we can think of to support our local veterans. Many trucking companies look to hire veterans, and CTS is taking the initiative to help them. For that, we are very proud,” concluded Reitz.
