Jon Osburn and OOIDA’s Tour Truck, the Spirit of the American Trucker, are at the Guilty by Association Truck Show at Four State Trucks in Joplin, Mo. Stop in, say hi to Jon, and join OOIDA for a $10 discount.

Our own Mark Reddig and Barry Spillman are also there with Jon, along with folks from Land Line Magazine and more from the OOIDA crew. The Association is playing a much bigger role in the Joplin show this year, and we hope to see you all there.

See the full Spirit Schedule.

Truckers for Troops Letters

'It really means a lot to us all'

I am a Kentucky Air National Guard member deployed with our sister unit out of St. Joseph, Mo.


We received the packages you sent the other day, and I just wanted to thank you for your generosity. It is heartwarming when we receive packages like this.


The socks and shirts will definitely be worn, and the other snacks will be devoured.


I am one of the more seasoned troops, having served during Vietnam (if you can believe someone as old as me would still be in the military). I actually turned 60 just before this deployment started, and will be retiring shortly after we return to the states.


I have vivid recollection of the way our soldiers, airmen and sailors were treated back then, so this means more to me than some of my younger counterparts. They have only seen a grateful attitude towards the military.


I have been blessed over the years to see public opinion swing full circle.


Thank you so much for thinking about us. It really means a lot to us all.


Respectfully yours,


Master Sgt. Larry Hamel
