### Can I get a grant to begin a trucking business?

I had driven for 24 yrs. up to 8/17/1989, when another driver started his vehicle before I could get a hold of the Safety Bar. The result was:  A serious & tramatic accident. Which caused me to retire at the age of 47.  Now after over 23 yrs., my doctors have given me to OK to return to driving a Commercial vehicle "Over the road".  As a veteran I believe that I am now ready to run my own buisness.

I would like to purchase two "Western Star - 5700XE" semi tractors [hiring one driver & driving the other one myself. I am going to a "Refresher driving school" [ J.T.L. -- A DOT...Certified Driving School ] due to the time that I've not driven.

A friend of mine, is also going to purchase two of the same trucks & we would like to begin a small company.  These units would be Leased to Hills Bro's Transportation Co. located in Omaha,NE.

As a Veteran,I believe that I have the will, the experience & knowledge to operate a small buisness.  I have two yrs. of college.  In that 24 yrs.on the road, there weren't any tickets,now any accidents. The amount that I would need would approximately be in the range of $500,000. This would be used to purchase 2 Units, as well as the Authority to run Interstate.  2 No.2 Revision Nancy 161 ●3 ●5 ### Can I get a grant to begin a trucking business?

The amount that I would need would approximately be in the range of $500,000. This would be used to purchase 2 Units, as well as the Authority to run Interstate. Up to 8/17/1989 I had driven over3,000,000 miles in 24 yrs., with out any tickets, or accidents. Then another driver started up a tractor that I was atempting to dismount from. I was unable to get hold of the Safety Bar....When I came to, I was 12' away from there the vehicle had been parked. After 23 yrs. of operations, rehabilitation, my doctors have said that I can return to the work force. During those 24 yrs. I was a company driver. Now, I would like to run my own business as an owner operator.
