                     Wednesday, September 11, 2019

  Mr. TRONE. Madam Speaker, I would like to take this opportunity to 
recognize D. M. Bowman, Inc., a transportation and logistics company 
based in Williamsport, Maryland. This company has used innovation and 
work ethic to make its mark on the trucking world. In 1996, D. M. 
Bowman Founder and Chairman Don Bowman designated this week as Driver 
Appreciation Week, an annual event celebrating the hard work drivers do 
every day. This year, I am honored to highlight the achievements of his 
incredible company and recognize our nation's truck drivers, who 
provide all Americans a great service.
   This year, D. M. Bowman is celebrating 60 years in business. 
Throughout this time, the company has been an invaluable source of 
economic development and jobs for Maryland's Sixth District. Although 
the business began as a one-man operation, due to Don Bowman's 
determination and expertise, it quickly began to pick up speed. Now, D. 
M. Bowman has an exceptional fleet of 382 power units and 8 terminals 
on the east coast.
   As the company grew, so did its outreach efforts. Today, D. M. 
Bowman works with Hagerstown Community College Driving School to help 
individuals who obtain their commercial driver's licenses find new 
career opportunities.
   On behalf of the residents of Maryland's Sixth Congressional 
District, I thank D. M. Bowman and its dedicated team for all that they 
have done for our community and recognize the 112,900 people employed 
by the trucking industry in our great state.
