    I can say most of you guys paved the way for us new drivers. I spoke to many veteran drivers and the way they put it, it seems like the new drivers are born with a silver spoon. Although the work seems a bit tough to me in the beginning, I can't imagine how tough it was years ago with an older diad/No diad and less equipment. You did the dirty work... So my hat goes off to you. Much respect.

    I think we should honor those drivers who are veterans, active or retired.

    I truly envy the old timers that go on vacation for a month. Great motivational tool as I love to travel.

    May seem that way, but I have to be honest I worked maybe about 10 jobs in my lifetime (I'm 24 yrs old) and I think the longest I've stayed at job was 2 years. You have guys here (including you maybe) whose been doing this for 10, 15, 20+ years. That's dedication I must say.

    Thanks for the pat on the back but the real veterans we should honor are the ones who traded our nation's uniforms for a set of browns. Those are the ones we should truly be thankful for.

    Let's not put the cart in front of the horse.
    We must honor all Orion implementation supervisors first.
    Without their selfless acts of bravery, we would never be able to keep our stock price over $100
    That's most important !! :bag:

    Just found it funny that you would imply that someone was stupid while at the same time not being able to spell.
