As America grapples with the coronavirus and daily life is altered, the nation's truck drivers are among those who are risking their personal health and doing the hard work to keep products moving to stores, hospitals and elsewhere. And their effort is being recognized.

Many users on social media are using the hashtag #ThankATrucker to send their message. Below are examples. 

In Oklahoma City March 20, TBS Factoring Service provided truck drivers with a "grab-and-go" sack lunch featuring a submarine sandiwch, water and chips. Company executives held signs up near Interstate 35, encouraging truckers to take a break and enjoy the complimentary meal.
