Veterans In Trucking is partnering with Waypoint vets to honor veterans in the trucking industry with truly unforgettable outdoor adventures of a lifetime! These adventures are open to anyone that served honorably in the military and is now involved in the trucking industry.

From the volcanoes of Hawaii to the most beautiful cave system in the world in Vietnam, these outdoor trips plug veterans into the brotherhood of trucking, with activities centered around time in nature. Expeditions focus on wellness and skill-building, with planned events ranging from the gorgeous coasts of Big Sur to world-class fishing in Seattle

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!

Trips feature chef-prepared food, outdoor adventures, and camaraderie with nine other veterans in trucking. The sponsorship cost of $5,000 per attendee covers the entire event including gear, lodging, food, and more!

PEARL HARBOR DISCOVERY TOUR & VOLCANO EXPEDITION

Hawaii • May 26-30

This outdoor adventure commemorates Memorial Day with a tour of the Pearl Harbor Memorial: We are highlighting the history of trucks both as defenders of the weak and as liberators in American conflict theaters. This trip will also feature a stunning hike on one of Hawaii’s famed jungle volcanoes. These volcanoes parallel the beauty inherent in service, while reminding veterans of the power of what may lay dormant within following their sacrifice.


SALMON FISHING IN SEATTLE & HOMELESS VETERANS SERVICE PROJECT

Washington • July

We are proud to offer this experience for both its world class fishing and hiking opportunities. We also feel this is a strong offering because it will have an element of service– American military personnel will volunteer to aid veterans that are still seeking a peaceful transition into civilian life. We know that many veterans have found that serving military personnel in challenging situations helps them establish some of their own healing and find further purpose.

BIG SUR: VETERANS, MONARCHS, & THE LIFE OF PURPOSE

California • October

This expedition features the stunning vistas and coastal views of Big Sur, one of the most beautiful scenic areas of the country. Veterans will visit the Monarch Groves of Pismo Beach to see the hundreds of thousands of butterflies that gather to winter there every year. These Monarchs travel 3,000 miles over five generations, and they symbolize the ongoing purpose each veteran serves, wherever they are on their journey.

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 outdoors expedition features the most beautiful cave system on the planet. It is a visual metaphor of overcoming and shedding light to bring about healing and reveal beauty.
