By resigning the statement of support, J.B. Hunt re-pledges to continue to do the following:

  • Recognize and support our country’s service members and their families.
  • Recognize and honor the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act.
  • Provide managers with the tools they need to effectively manage employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
  • Appreciate the values, leadership and unique skills service members bring to the workforce and encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists and Veterans.

More recently, Regional Operations Manager Trevor and J.B. Hunt were presented the Patriotic Employer Award from the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the National Guard. It gives recognition to employers who contribute to national security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America’s National Guard and Reserve force. Trevor was nominated by his Fleet Manager, Luis.
