We have a number of exciting events planned in 2023, from the Veterans in Trucking Showcase at MATS, to our Mission Veteran Expedition opportunities in Zion, Utah, and Saigon, Vietnam.
We are taking veterans on unforgettable adventures! From outdoor trips featuring the opportunity to see the country that they served in uniform to showing off their trucks on the 2023 MATS showroom floor.
2023 MATS Showcase
March 30-April 1
We were proud to show the deep patriotism and commitment of our industry to veteran drivers by displaying 10 custom-wrapped trucks on the MATS showroom floor.

Honoring Vietnam Veterans: Saigon Tour & Cave Expedition
Vietnam • November
Our Saigon experience will highlight the heroic aspects of American courage during the Vietnam War, including stories from Operation Babylift, which rescued 3,000 Vietnamese orphans from certain death. The outdoor expedition features the most beautiful cave system on the planet. It is a visual metaphor for overcoming and shedding light to bring about healing and reveal beauty.
Mission Veteran Expedition: Zion, Utah 2022
“VIT’s outdoor recreation events and the networking opportunities they represent can re-instill veterans’ sense of belonging, purpose, and community, consequently establishing veterans in their mission with transportation.”Sarah SherbonDirector of Veteran Affairs, Veterans In Trucking
We are on a mission to unite and honor veterans in trucking. We invite carriers to partner with us as we look to serve our veterans in the trucking industry!
Attendees will fly or drive into the expedition, where they will meet the Trip Leader. All other transportation will be facilitated during the retreat. In order to ensure flight arrivals and departure times are as close together as possible, drivers will arrive by truck or via a prearranged airport within the same window.
