On November 7, 2013, the Stevens Transport community warmly welcomed a national hero and recipient of the Medal of Honor: Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta. During an unforgettable event hosted at the Stevens Transport global headquarters in Dallas, TX, Staff Sergeant Giunta vividly described a life-changing event that occurred on October 25, 2007 in Afghanistan in which Giunta heroically put his life in jeopardy on behalf of his fellow servicemen and his country.
Attacked from 30 feet away by insurgents using AK-47 rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, and stationary machine guns, Giunta exercised ingenious wherewithal to offer medical aid to several wounded comrades while simultaneously imposing precise firepower to deter advancing armed Afghani fighters. Once the onslaught seized, Giunta chased an unidentified Afghani soldier dragging a wounded US combatant into enemy territory. When the opportunity arose, Giunta successfully inflicted a lethal gun wound into the enemy soldier from afar, forcing him to release the wounded American behind. Shortly after the tragic surprise attack, US intelligence officials identified the anonymous Afghani soldier as a high value US target and international terrorist.
Since 1980, Stevens Transport has proudly employed countless US veterans to further the corporate initiative of industry-leading service, setting a remarkable example for other preeminent logistics companies to mirror. Representing the timeless United States Military credo: "for the man on my right and the man on my left", US veterans have continued to lead the Stevens Transport workplace with unmatched ambition, leadership, and exemplary teamwork. Stevens Transport cannot thank our military servicemen enough for the daily sacrifices they make to ensure the freedom of all American citizens. Stevens Transport Management wants to honorably thank Staff Sergeant Salvatore Giunta for sharing his unique story of valor, courageousness, and embodiment of the enduring American spirit.
