Veterans Apprenticeship Program

If you're a veteran, you'll find a welcome home at TanTara Transportation.

TanTara was founded by a proud military veteran. Mike Riggan served in Vietnam; his son Dave served in Iraq. TanTara's longest-tenured employee retired from the Army National Guard. And about 30 percent of our workforce are veterans.

The Riggan family knows that military veterans are hard-working and disciplined team players. That's why we're proud to offer a veteran apprenticeship program at TanTara.


What does this mean for you? Depending on your eligibility you may be able to collect income from both the GI Bill® and TanTara while you're training and after you get out on the road for up to 12 months.

You've served your country. Now it's time for your country to honor you. As a military veteran, you're eligible for many veteran's programs after discharge. The VA offers several types of educational assistance bills, including the:

  • Post-9/11 GI Bill
  • Montgomery GI Bill
  • Select Reserve GI Bill
  • Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment

If the idea of spending four years in college doesn't appeal to you, why not consider earning your CDL? If you can't imagine becoming a 9-5 desk jockey, just picture the lure of the open road as a truck driver. TanTara's veteran's apprenticeship program may be a perfect fit for you.

If eligible for the GI Bill®, you'll receive a monthly paycheck from the VA while attending trucking school at TanTara. Depending on your GI Bill® eligibility you may qualify for up to $1,400 per month. A TanTara representative can provide you with additional information about the GI Bill® and the application process. You may also contact the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs website or call 1-888-442-4551 for more information.

Why not take advantage of free money—you've earned it—and train for a lucrative new career at the same time? TanTara supports our veterans. We'll work with you; we'll help you discover all your available benefits. Thank you for your service to our country. Contact TanTara today.
