Teamsters celebrate Truck Driver Appreciation Week -- again!

It's that time of year again when the Teamsters celebrate Truck Driver Appreciation Week. Last year, we asked Teamsters to submit photos of themselves and their trucks to the Teamsters Facebook page. The response was overwhelming. Hundreds of Teamsters sent in photos, along with comments like the ones below. 
This year, we're again asking Teamsters to send us photos of themselves and their trucks -- either by posting on the Teamsters Facebook page or by sending a direct message to the page. 
We're looking forward to seeing more great photos and comments like the ones below: 
James F. Giles Everything everyone in America owns, eats, or uses got here on a truck - thanks, Teamsters. 
Richard LapointeMade the seniority list in Feb 1971 in Cambridge, MA and retired last year with an awesome pension after 42 years of service with several companies. God bless the Teamster's Union. It's always been the working class that made this country great.

Larry Katra My stepdad was a union steward and saw him save many guys jobs over the years.The Teamsters was a great union and still is. 
Frank Milatzo In '62 I was just learning how to drive big rigs, joined the Teamsters 25 years ago after freight: got deregulated and couldn't make any money as an independent trucker. Best move I ever made 
Lenore Lopez I appreciate truck drivers, I wish more employers would respect the physical and mental demands of the job. 
Wayne Robertson Funny how when I'm on 2 wheels I worry less about them than I do the soccer mom in the grocery-getter. But I'm not invisible to them, and the living they make depends on their safety and courtesy!
Sandie Hawley where would we be without truckers, God bless em. 
Jennifer Mansfield My Daddy, Oklie J Huggins, 1928-2008. Teamster Truck Driver for 44 yrs.
