A newcomer to Alaska from the economically-depressed state of Montana, Ray Veilleux is a man on a mission. He was an owner/operator whose business closed down during the recession. Now, he’s in Alaska working his way up from the bottom all over again. He recently signed on with Carlile to work in the yard strapping down loads. He put in a few months of grunt work until a driver spot opened up. Now, Ray has a beat up old truck and a few runs under his belt, but he still isn’t sure what he’s gotten himself into.
