OMAHA, NE -- (Marketwire) -- 04/01/13 -- Transwood, Inc. is a nationwide trucking and transport company that has been serving clients ever since 1928 -- and while the company is passionate about quality and about customer service, it is also committed to the cause of assisting and supporting America's veterans. As such, the company's attention was drawn to a recent article from The Huffington Post, which summarizes some of the hardships that veterans face, and encourages companies to help remedy these problems by extending career opportunities to America's defenders. The article has won a comment from Transwood, Inc. The company has issued a new statement to the press.

"At Transwood, Inc., this is a cause that is near and dear to our hearts," says the company's new press statement. "We make it a priority to seek out qualified, hard-working veterans who are keen to develop new career opportunities, and to hire them. In fact, hiring veterans is one of the most satisfying and rewarding practices that our company maintains, and we are happy to see other businesses urged to follow suit."

The statistics cited in The Huffington Post are truly sobering. According to the article, the Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that roughly 22 veterans commit suicide every day; this adds up to 8,000 each year, and is to say nothing of the active duty servicemen who take their lives each year. The article notes that there are numerous government programs available to help soldiers with PTSD, but that there is also a need for members of society to do their part.

The Huffington Post goes on to note that one of the best ways to make a difference in the life of a veteran is to provide him or her with employment. The article notes that many returning soldiers, especially those with PTSD, continue to experience a strong need to be a part of a team and to work toward a greater cause -- something that employment can provide them with.

The article also notes that assisting veterans is something that can benefit businesses. "Hiring a veteran is not just the right thing to do, but it is one of the best decisions a business can make for their bottom line," the article contends, noting that veterans bring qualities of leadership, trustworthiness, and more.

"Across the board, the veterans we hire turn out to be some of the hardest-working and most valuable members of our team," comments Transwood, Inc. "So while we are happy to help them by offering employment, the truth is that they are helping us just as much!"
