Across the land today flags are flying, grills are being fired up and people will gather to celebrate 240 years of our great nation. Our founding fathers believed in the hope of a nation where freedom abounds and they would willingly lay their lives down in that declaration.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

We owe a great debt to countless men and women who have worn the flag of our country in effort to preserve and protect the freedoms we enjoy each day. Today we honor the sacrifices and service of each passing generation that we might remain the land of the free and the home of the brave. May we never take the blessings of freedom for granted or forget its cost.

Projections are that over 41 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home this holiday weekend. That's a 2% increase from last year. Fuel prices have risen, but are still low compared to previous years. Due to the lower fuel prices the majority of travelers are hitting the road, with more 35 million driving. That is a lot of extra traffic on the roads starting the week of July 4th.

Today is a day set aside to remember those who have given the ultimate in service of our country and in the defense of freedom. Generations upon generations of men and women have sacrificed their lives in effort to protect and preserve the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. The saying is certainly true that freedom will never be free. The cost of freedom is very high, and it is with great gratitude that we pause as a nation today in remembrance of that cost.

At FirstFleet we are proud of the men and women who represent our great nation in armed service. We remember those who have fallen in battle with great honor and we celebrate those who are in service today with hearts of gratitude.

It is our hope that wherever you find yourself today you will be able to pause for a moment and reflect on the blessings of the freedom we enjoy and that you are able to find some way to honor those who made it possible.

New Release - The latest release of the FirstFleet Mobile app has some great features designed to make the app better service the community of users which includes drivers, operations team members, customers and more.

HOS
The Hours of Service card has been enhanced with two new options to better service the needs of our driver community when help is needed. The added functions are:

The ability to email the log support team with a simple tap. You will find this option perhaps helpful when your request is not of an urgent nature and some delay in reply is acceptable. 

A new FAQ section designed to cover the most frequently asked questions with regard to HOS interactions. These topics include screenshots and tutorials designed to help our drivers service their needs quickly. A quick review of these tips may give you a better experience all the way around. 

The ability to issue a unit reset in times of trouble. In certain situations the in cab unit becomes locked or performs in a manner that requires a soft reset be sent to the device. We have now built this functionality into the app in. If you are logged into the Omnitracs unit and know it needs to be reset you now have the ability to issue a soft reset command directly inside the FirstFleet Mobile app without contacting the help desk.

Motivated by the option of going on blood pressure medicine in 2014, Carl decided it was time to take his health into his own hands. The doctor informed Carl that he must lose weight to decrease his risks of a heart attack. At that time, Carl weighed 440 pounds. After making a life-change by instituting one hour of walking every day and changing his eating habits on the road, he has successfully lost over 130 pounds since that early diagnosis of obesity and high blood pressure.
