Conway veteran finds new drive on the open road

CONWAY — U.S. Army veteran Cecil Fore always knew he would drive a truck. This year, that passion has led him to the open road.“They’re seeing all of the country, they’re basically living in the truck and they’re constantly moving,” the Conway resident said of truckers. “That was just fascinating to me.”While serving in Iraq from 2008-11, Fore fixed different military vehicles as a mechanic.

CONWAY — U.S. Army veteran Cecil Fore always knew he would drive a truck. This year, that passion has led him to the open road.

“They’re seeing all of the country, they’re basically living in the truck and they’re constantly moving,” the Conway resident said of truckers. “That was just fascinating to me.”

While serving in Iraq from 2008-11, Fore fixed different military vehicles as a mechanic. He then became a sales part manager for an auto supply store upon returning home.

After working within the Army’s rigorous structure for three years, Fore, 34, faced some difficulties adjusting to civilian life.

“I was used to hands-on working, and it wasn’t so much of that when I got back,” Fore said. “It was a lot of sit-around-and-wait. That first year, it took awhile for me, but I finally got it together.”

In 2021, he rekindled his passion for trucking during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“At the time, I noticed that really the only people that were constantly still working were truck drivers,” Fore said. “I had a friend that drove trucks, and I went out on the road with him for two weeks. I was like, ‘Okay, this is something I could do.’”

Fore moved down to Conway and pursued the commercial driver’s licensing (CDL) program at Miller-Motte College in Conway. Miller-Motte has offered the program in Conway since the campus opened in 2010.

Miller-Motte College Conway is one of 22 regional campuses owned by parent company Ancora Education. Only two Miller-Motte campuses offer CDL training in the state — the Conway campus and the Charleston college.

Other Miller-Motte locations offering CDL training include Augusta, Ga.; Fayetteville, Jacksonville, Raleigh, N.C.; and Chattanooga, Tenn.

The course features hands-on training in an on-site driving course, as well as classroom instruction, and it covers skills like alley docking, motor carrier safety regulations, vehicle inspections and tractor-trailer maintenance. Students can become certified in as little as four weeks.

Since 2010, the college has seen 164 program graduates, with an average graduation rate of 96 percent and placement rate of 77 percent, according to Sandra Wendland, executive director of Miller-Motte College.

“There’s a huge demand for it,” Wendland said. “They (the students) are employed many times before they even finish because they have employers that will come here. We’ve already expanded once and will continue for sure as long as the demand continues to be there.”

Upon graduating from Miller-Motte College in December 2021, Fore was quickly hired by the employee-owned flatbed trucking company TMC Transportation.

The company, which started in 1972, has a long history of hiring current and former military personnel. Over 36 percent of its flatbed trucking fleet is comprised of veterans, according to company officials.

John Heine recruits for TMC Transportation in the southeast region of the country, which includes South Carolina. Heine also served for 20 years in the Marine Corps before joining the company.

Although TMC does not exclusively recruit veterans to their workforce, he said the company is very proud of its commitment to veterans.

“Our focus is to bridge the gap from when they get out of the military to going into a civilian job,” Heine said. “We expect, basically, the same thing that the military would expect, and that’s to be on time, cleanliness and looking professional. It just fits us to really recruit military as much as possible.”

Fore said the company’s focus on employing veterans appealed to him.

“They kind of run the company off of military values,” Fore said. “They work with veterans to make sure they can make their appointments or anything else that comes up that’s veteran-related.”

The trucking profession is experiencing a nationwide shortage of drivers. In October this year, the profession was short about 80,000 drivers, and that number could double by 2030, according to the American Trucking Associations.

This shortage, combined with the surge in the demand for goods during the COVID-19 pandemic, caused trucking costs to grow more than 20 percent last year, according to Federal Reserve Economic Data.

To address the shortage, there has been a heightened interest in hiring veterans to the profession.

U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration created a Veterans Trucking Task Force, chaired by former congressman and Army veteran Patrick Murphy, to focus on the recruitment and retention of veterans and military family members, according to White House officials.

For Fore, finding a balance between spending time at home and work is one of the hardest parts about being a truck driver. However, one of his favorite parts has been visiting nearly every continental U.S. state — all except Utah, Washington and Nevada.

Fore said he hopes to start his own trucking company one day, and be in the trucking industry for the rest of his life.

For anyone interested in becoming a trucker, Fore encouraged them to do research beforehand, such as speaking to current drivers about their experiences and riding along with one to understand what the job entails.

Also, he offered advice to veterans who are readjusting to civilian life.

“Find something that you really have a love for, or that you can develop a love for, and stick with it,” Fore said.

Many vets are landing jobs, but the transition can be tough

Phillip Slaughter left the Army after 18 years and found a job similar to one he had in uniform: behind the wheel of a truck. Instead of towing food and bullets through war zones, he hauled packages for FedEx.It wasn’t what he wanted to do. The work aggravated his post-traumatic stress disorder. It would be three years and several jobs before he landed his ideal position as a sourcing recruiter for a tech company.“I think it’s the first job that I’ve worked 10 consecutive months without quitting,” ...

Phillip Slaughter left the Army after 18 years and found a job similar to one he had in uniform: behind the wheel of a truck. Instead of towing food and bullets through war zones, he hauled packages for FedEx.

It wasn’t what he wanted to do. The work aggravated his post-traumatic stress disorder. It would be three years and several jobs before he landed his ideal position as a sourcing recruiter for a tech company.

“I think it’s the first job that I’ve worked 10 consecutive months without quitting,” said Slaughter, 41, who lives in Clarksville, Tennessee.

Slaughter is a U.S. military veteran who found a job he loves at a time when the nation is experiencing some of its lowest monthly veteran unemployment on record. But the rate — 2.7% in October — can mask the difficulty of a transition that sometimes takes years of working unfulfilling jobs, while forging a new identity and a new purpose beyond serving one’s country.

“Even though (veteran unemployment) is low, I’m interested to see a survey on how many people are happy in the position they’re in,” said Slaughter, who also runs his own consulting firm for fellow vets.

Veterans account for about 7% of the civilian population, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Their jobless rate can help gauge the nation's efforts to assist former service members, experts say. It can also reflect on the military and how it prepares departing personnel. High veteran unemployment is not good for recruiting.

For this Veterans Day, a handful of former service members talked about their experiences looking for work at a time when the veteran jobless rate is so low. For some, it was easy — but others have struggled.

Pierson Gest, a former Army infantryman, landed his first post-military job in August as a hydropower system designer in California.

Gest joined up during the Great Recession, knowing he’d eventually go to school on the GI Bill. Starting college in 2017 was tough at first as he developed study habits. But he got the hang of it, earning his engineering degree in June.

“I was lucky enough to negotiate a six-figure salary,” said Gest, 37, who lives outside San Francisco. “And I definitely used and leveraged my experience in the Army to negotiate that wage on top of my college degree.”

Across the country in Florida, Thomas Holmes is still searching for his ideal job.

Holmes, 46, left the Air Force in 2012 after 17 years, during which he maintained parachute systems for various types of aircraft, from F-15 fighter jets to U-2 spy planes.

He said the one full-time job he’s worked, in the billing and claims department of a warehouse office, was toxic. He quit after about 18 months.

Holmes used the GI Bill to earn three degrees, including a master's in sports management. He found part-time work in the industry, but rising gas prices and the lure of more consistent hours prompted him to work at a nearby UPS store.

“I’ve applied for many jobs — county jobs, state jobs, all sorts of things,” said Holmes, who lives outside Tampa. “And then all I get is: ‘Well, thanks for your service.’”

Jayla Hair’s transition from Navy to civilian paralegal wasn't easy, despite a bachelor's degree in the field and skills that would seem transferable.

Hair, 30, said she applied to about 300 jobs over eight months. After seeking help from a Navy program and friends, Hair overhauled her resume and job interviews eventually came her way. But potential employers cited her lack of experience with state laws and civilian courts.

Hair took temporary jobs in the legal field and recently landed a full-time position as a paralegal for a Fortune 500 company in the Chicago area.

“Just having my military experience was not enough,” said Hair, who plans to pursue a law degree in the future. “If it wasn’t for me having these temporary jobs to build my civilian resume, I don’t know where I’d be right now.”

Hair landed her job at a time when veteran unemployment has been mostly dropping. The annual veteran jobless rate fell steadily from 8.7% in 2010 to 3.1% in 2019, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Last year, after a spike fueled by the coronavirus pandemic, the annual rate was 4.4%. But the seasonally adjusted monthly percentage in March was 2.4, hailed by President Joe Biden as tied for the lowest rate on record. August also hit that mark.

The tight labor market and demand for workers after the coronavirus pandemic is likely one factor for the low veteran jobless rates, said Jeffrey B. Wenger, a senior policy researcher at the Rand Corp. But so are significant efforts in recent years by the U.S. military, Department of Veterans Affairs and veteran service organizations to provide assistance to outgoing service members.

Training such as resume-writing is now mandatory and American companies have launched initiatives to hire hundreds of thousands of vets.

Many of those undertakings grew from the Great Recession and the abundance of stressed-out service members who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, which “brought the veteran employment crisis to a head,” Wenger said.

“And over the last 10 to 15 years, people have been putting in more and more resources and have become more and more dedicated to fixing that problem,” Wenger said.

Among them is Transition Overwatch, a firm that runs career apprenticeship programs across the country. CEO Sean Ofeldt said the company zeroes in on what active service members want to do as civilians, not what they're doing or the skills they've learned in the military.

“A lot of military members don’t want to keep doing what they did,” said Ofeldt, a former Navy SEAL. “We train them up while they’re still on active duty and then launch them into an actual career with all the support they need for that first 12 months.”

But the formula for supporting veterans has to encompass more than just employment. It needs to focus on social challenges as well, said Karl Hamner, a University of Alabama education professor.

Veterans can feel isolated after losing their tribe of fellow service members. Hamner said new data indicates that loss can be especially acute for women because they formed strong bonds with one another as they navigated a male-dominated military.

In a soon-to-be released national survey of 4,700 female veterans conducted by Hamner and his colleagues, 70% said adjusting to civilian life was difficult; 71% said they needed more time to figure out what they wanted to do.

“They had to prove themselves in a valued, highly regarded profession,” Hamner said. “And now they’re back to trying to figure out what it means to be a civilian woman and deal with all the standard discriminatory stuff.”

‘This is gonna make a big difference’: First mural comes to life in Arts and Innovation District

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - A little more color has begun popping up around part of Myrtle Beach’s ‘Arts and Innovation District.’

City staff spent Tuesday painting a brand new mural to bring the city to life with a fresh coat of paint.

Kimberly Bryant, a crew leader for the city of Myrtle Beach, says she’s been painting for over 30 years, so when the opportunity came to help paint the first mural of the Arts and Innovation District she was eager to grab a brush.

“This is gonna make a big difference when you’re riding by and making it look a little bit better than it was,” said Bryant.

She told WMBF News she felt the colors of the mural represent different cultural backgrounds throughout the city.

“It’s a multiple of different colors so it could be a multiple of different cultures,” she said.

The mural reflects the district’s logo, with rich colors and a distinctive design that represents the city’s new street alignments.

Staff members said the mural is one of the first steps to revitalizing this part of the city.

The work of art now sits in heart of the Arts and Innovation District along Ninth Avenue.

That’s also right beside the interior parking lot where the city recently installed a new permeable pavers system.

The city’s Downtown Research & Development Associate Brian Schmitt said there are just under 30 million dollars dedicated to the underground and streetscape infrastructure which means this is just the beginning of what’s to come.

“Get some buzz and excitement back in the downtown,” said Schmitt. “You can have as many public meetings and invite as many people and show them pretty pictures but people want to see dirt moving people want to see folks coming together and painting a mural.”

Bryant agrees coming together for projects for the district will be beneficial in the future.

“You know all coming together, so I think it’s it’s definitely going to bring a lot of good downtown,” she said.

The next goal is to complete at least three more murals throughout the district with the next one being located on Broadway Street.

By the end of 2023, the district expects to have twelve more completed.

When it comes to branding across the city of Myrtle Beach – the Arts & Innovation District is bringing its logo to life one paintbrush at a time.

CONWAY — The stage is set for Coastal Carolina baseball.

CCU released its 2023 baseball schedule on Nov. 28 and it includes eight teams that made the 2022 NCAA tournament last season in national seeds North Carolina and Southern Miss, as well as Wake Forest, VCU, Campbell, Georgia Southern, Louisiana and Texas State.

“The 2023 schedule will be one of the most challenging schedules we have had in years,” CCU baseball head coach Gary Gilmore said. “It’s highlighted by 34 home games, along with 20 overall games versus 2022 NCAA Regional participants, including new SBC powerhouse member Southern Miss.”

The 2023 slate will start with the annual Baseball at the Beach Tournament on Feb. 17-19. This year’s tournament field will include Fairfield, Middle Tennessee and VCU.

CCU will open the season versus Fairfield on Opening Day, Feb. 17, and host Middle Tennessee on Feb. 18 before wrapping up Opening Weekend on Feb. 19 against VCU.

The Chants will remain at home to host N.C. State for a midweek matchup on Feb. 22, and then conclude the season-opening seven-game home stand with a three-game series with Creighton on Feb. 24-26.

Gilmore’s squad will then open up Sun Belt Conference play on the road for the sixth time in the Chants’ seven years in the Sun Belt, as CCU will take on conference newcomer James Madison for a three-game conference series on March 17-19 in Harrisonburg, Va.

CCU will return home for a three-game conference series with Texas State on March 24-26, before hitting the road for a five-game swing at North Carolina (March 28), at Georgia State (March 31-April 2), and at in-state foe Clemson (April 4).

A three-game home series against Georgia Southern on April 6-8 breaks up a long three weeks for the Chants, who return to the road for five-straight games at Campbell (April 10 & 11) and Old Dominion (April 14-16).

Following the conference weekend series versus the Monarchs in Norfolk, Va., the Chanticleers return home to host the College of Charleston in midweek play on April 18 before welcoming Sun Belt newcomer Southern Miss to Springs Brooks Stadium for the first time on April 21-23.

CCU will finish the month of April on the road with a midweek contest at Wake Forest on April 25 before heading south to take on the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns in conference play on April 28-30.

The month of May will see CCU host nine home games, beginning with a home contest against Charlotte in midweek action on May 2 before hosting a three-game conference series against Appalachian State on March 5-7.

After a road contest at The Citadel on May 9, the Chants will turn around to host Clemson on May 10, before closing out the regular-season road slate at South Alabama on May 12-14.

The final four games of the regular season will come at Springs Brooks Stadium, as the Chants will host the Diamond Heels of North Carolina on May 16, and then conclude the regular-season schedule at home with a three-game series against another new Sun Belt foe in Marshall on May 18-20.
