captain charlie /class a cdl/good person/

I am a 100 ton boat captain,worked on boats last 15 yrs. good job for summers,work is in Alaska.

I have a job now taking people out whale watching been with same co. for seven yrs. I am coast guard licensed. I also have a class A cdl, for the last 12 yrs,doubles,triples and tankers,hazmat. I do have a twic card as well.

I two have felonies that are over 25yrs. old,i have dwi's that are over 20 yrs.old,

The co that i work for knows of my past record as well as the u.s.coast guard commander that swore me in when i got my captains license. These people have given me a chance,and i am eternally grateful to them.

But when i apply for trucking jobs,all have turned me down,and i have even said if given the chance, i would pay to go back through school, for what ever time they require,prior to working for them and they still turn me down!

Truck driving is a passion of mine,I dream of the open road! I have been clean for over 20 yrs. No tickets, no drinking,no speeding tickets,not one blemish in all that time.

I even went to college in AK.,for five yrs., have had a steady work record for the last 20 yrs,am honest dependable,raised a child,did all the things society requires.

Yet, i can not be given a chance to be a truck driver!yes i did wrong,in another life time,so long ago.

If there is any one out there that believes that i have made a complete self rehabilitation,and could use a good person to drive for them , then please give me shot,i know you won't be disappointed.

So sad NEW

Good luck Captain.

Mighty sad employers can't even overlook something from so long ago.

Gets to the point of being ridiculous sometimes, keep your head up.
