Crete Carrier Corp inducted five veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces into the Patriot Fleet last week during Veterans Day. Members of the special fleet each receive a customized Freightliner Cascadia wrapped with honorary military graphics.
Following a speech by Col. Chris Collins, Crete Carrier Corp. COO Tim Aschoff recognized the 11 current Patriot Fleet truckers. There are currently 15 trucks in the fleet with the new inductees. Keys to a new Cascadia were handed over to the five new members.
This year, Crete has received the American Legion Employer of Veterans Award and was winner for CivilianJobs.com’s Most Valuable Employers for Military list. Crete also received the Pro Patria Award from the Nebraska Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve and was a semifinalist for the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award last year.
