Truckstop Canada News: One trucker's tribute to our troops
Posted on Tuesday, September 18 @ 13:30:14 CEST by Admin

PHP-Nuke COBURG, Ont. -- Owner-operator Larry Josie says we all owe a great debt to Canada's veterans, and he fully supports the Canadian troops currently serving overseas. And it's not just lip service. This Coburg Ont.-based trucker has created a rolling tribute to the men and women who serve Canada.

First, he decorated his tractor with the names and photos of several vets, plucked from the Department of National Defense archives. The truck is a 2005 model, which was designated The Year of the Veteran in Canada.

Remembrance Rig: Josie says his truck is a 'personal
thank you' to all vets that have protected Canada. Recently, with the help of Sign Design, he applied these stunning graphics to one of the two trailers he owns. The montage shows Canadian troops in action overseas, and includes men and women from all branches of the Service.

He's regularly asked to bring the truck to various Legion events, and he recently took the truck to CFB Trenton to rave reviews by fighters stationed there. He says he now being asked to attend more events than he can manage.

"My truck is a personal thank you for all those people (the vets) have done for Canada in years past, and I know I'm in a small way I'm one of the benefactors of their sacrifice," Josie says. "I decided to do the trailer to send the same message to our current bunch of soldiers, sailors, and pilots. We owe them our support, and I want to make sure they know we're behind them."

Josie has a regular run between Coburg, Ont. and Montreal, and the truck is easy to spot out on Highway 401 any day of the week. He also says he's looking for sponsors to support the cost of the artwork and possibly doing a second trailer. Anyone who's interested can reach Larry at 905-960-2680 or 905-372-4001.
