Department of Defense Honors USA Truck for Patriotic Support of Team Members Serving Our Nation

January 13, 2015 — Three team members from USA Truck (Nasdaq: USAK), a leading transportation and logistics provider headquartered in Van Buren, Ark., have been honored with the Patriot Award from the Arkansas Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. ESGR, a Department of Defense operational committee, recognizes extraordinary civilian support of employees serving in the Guard and Reserve.

Based on nominations from USA Truck team members currently serving our nation, ESGR recognized Jaimey Malone (Vice President, Sales), Greg Goodner (Director, Sales) and Eugene Barnes (Driver Manager). Jon Woodham, Northwest Arkansas Area ESGR Chairperson, presented the awards during a December assembly at USA Truck’s corporate headquarters.

USA Truck’s support extends far beyond the company’s distinctive bar and star logo; it is also reflected in USA Truck’s partnership the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and its commitment to recruiting and hiring military veterans.

“We are proud that nearly 25 percent our team members currently serve or have served in our nation’s armed forces. USA Truck has always seen it as our mission to support our patriot team members, and we welcome every opportunity to recognize their service and sacrifice,” said Burton Weis, Vice President of Human Resources for USA Truck.
ESGR has been dedicated to promoting Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers for more than 40 years. A network of more than 4,700 volunteers across all 50 states supports ESGR.
