More Vets Can Apply for Troops to Trucks Program

More veterans are now able to apply for Virginia's "Troops to Trucks" program following an amendment to the federal rules.The goal of the program is to help those who are transitioning out of the military or who are already veterans get their CDLs and then get a driving job.Officials say 300 people have already taken part.The amendment extends the length of time that Virginia can waive the driving skills test for a CDL to up to one year.{}{}{} That could mean an additional 60 or 100 veterans will participate next year.
