Heavy trucks are something which need to be used throughout the military to bring people and equipment to the locations that they are required at. It is important to make sure that the trucks are not only loaded properly, but that they are being driven with expertise even in combat areas to get the payload to the required destination on time. This is why the job of the United States National Guard Motor Transport Operator is an important one.
What You Will Do
You Will be in charge of making sure that the truck you are driving is in good operational condition before hitting the open road. You will also be in charge of making sure that you stay in line with a convoy or have the ability to help those which might be driving with you to have the necessary space to complete their duties. You will also need to make sure that the road you are travelling on is free of debris and roadside implements which might cause danger.
Get the Training
To make sure that you know what you are doing, you will go through two rounds of training. You will first go through basic training to make sure that you have military skills. You will then have to go through advanced training to make sure that you know how to handle driving the truck and how to handle any roadside maintenance that you may need to get to your destination.
