NASCAR DRIVER JENNIFER JO COBB & WREATHS ACROSS AMERICA ARE “DRIVEN2HONOR” POW-MIA’S
For six very special race dates this year, Jennifer Jo Cobb, NASCAR Camping World Truck Driver of the #10 Driven2Honor team will join forces with Wreaths Across America and the trucking industry to recognize our veterans by carrying the POW-MIA banner on the hood of her race truck at races in Charlotte, Dover, Gateway, Kentucky, Chicago and Phoenix.
These special race dates recognize the six days each year, on a national level, in which the POW-MIA Flag is flown at all government and military installations with the passage of Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act during the first term of the 105th Congress. In addition, Cobb will be working with Wreaths Across America and The National League of POW-MIA Families through her Driven2Honor.org charity to invite POW-MIA wives and families to these special race events as honorary guests.
The commemorative POW-MIA logo will be carried on Cobb’s race truck recognizing Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day this May, Flag Day in June, Independence Day in July, National POW-MIA Recognition Day in September and Veterans Day in November.
To kick off Military Appreciation Month this May, we wanted to do something special, “To kick off Military Appreciation Month this May, we wanted to do something special,” says Cobb. “The POW-MIA cause has been a longstanding national concern and we felt this was appropriate and a great opportunity to recognize those who are still missing and the families who are still grieving over their missing family member that served our country. Cobb is truly blessed and honored to be working with great organizations such as Wreaths Across America, The National League of POW MIA Families and many trucking companies and organizations as well such as The Used Truck Association, Truckload Carriers Association, American Trucking Association, Women In Trucking Association and Arrow Truck Sales.
Cobb’s Driven2Honor initiative honors women in the military but Cobb’ s thought how difficult it must be for the wives of those still missing or unaccounted for and how they have to deal with it on a day to day basis. We hope we can bring awareness to this cause in what we do this year. I’m honored to have the highly recognizable POW-MIA logo on my Driven 2 Honor race truck. I know it means a lot to those who have given the most. It’s time to bring them home.”

Wayne Hanson, Chairman of the Board for Wreaths Across America, said “WAA is pleased to join with Jennifer Jo Cobb and America’s trucking industry to bring attention to the plight of those service members still listed as POW or MIA even after over 50 years. We must never forget them or their service to this country.”
