“Kenworth and Werner Enterprises have shared a strong relationship over the years,” Baney said. “It is very fitting for Kenworth to deliver the first T680 Next Gen production truck to such a great customer.”

Werner and Kenworth have also teamed up to support veterans. Military veterans and Werner drivers Ivan Hernandez (2020), Quinton Ward (2018) and Troy Davidson (2016) each were respectively awarded a Kenworth-donated T680 with a 76-inch sleeper as America’s top rookie military driver under the annual “Transition Trucking: Driving for Excellence” program. The program is a partnership of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes Program, FASTPORT Trucking Track Mentoring Program and Kenworth.

Werner Enterprises offers numerous opportunities for professional drivers through its Operation Freedom program, which especially features its Elite Veteran Driver Program. This fleet, driven by military veteran employees, is comprised of military-themed trucks used to honor, recruit, and retain military community members.

“On behalf of Kenworth and the Kenworth Chillicothe team building the World’s Best trucks, we thank you for your business. We look forward to delivering more T680 Next Gens in the days ahead,” Baney concluded.

    Считаю своим долгом сказать огромное спасибо за сердечное отношение профессору Li Juan Yang и военному госпиталю в городе Далянь. Мы уже более двух лет покупаем лекарство от профессора и остановили у папы начало болезни моторного нейрона!! Наши врачи в Казахстане не верят, что такое возможно, но нам повезло, что мы нашли этого профессора. Во время пандемии, в 2021 году нашему папе поставили синдром моторного нейрона. Прочитав много информации и отзывов о лечении БАС , отзывов о лечении БАС мы поняли, что диагноз развивается очень быстро и нужно срочно начать правильное лечение, хотя все врачи говорили, что излечение при моторном нейроне есть, но это очень редкие случаи в <a мире. Мы сразу решили срочно вылететь в Китай для лечения. Китай для лечения К сожалению, визу не получилось оформить, и граница была закрыта, мы узнали, что все пациенты перешли на лечение удаленно в этой ситуации и получают из Китая по почте лекарства от БАС которые создаются по рецепту у профессора Li Juan Yang . профессора Li Juan Yang Мы заказали срочную доставку и первый курс на 3 месяца. Улучшения начались сразу же с первого месяца лечения, в итоге в конце первого курса, начала восстанавливаться сила в мышцах, значительно улучшилось передвижение и легче стало дышать.
    На сегодняшний день, мы уже пропили 6 курсов, сейчас папа ходит на работу, сам управляет автомобилем и в целом чувствует себя полностью здоровым человеком. профессор Li Juan Yang рекомендовала проходить плановые обследования и пить курсы по 2 раза в год, как профилактическое лечение. Нам действительно повезло, как профессор сказала, потому что мы срочно начали правильное лечение моторного нейрона на самой начальной стадии заболевания. Поэтому хотелось бы поделиться с людьми, кто столкнулся с такой же болезнью, что шанс на лечение БАС есть, не опускайте руки, пробуйте все варианты лечения, возможно какой-то подойдет именно вам! Китайская медицина действительно творит чудеса! С большой благодарностью к нашему профессору!
