• Ever hear of Warren Greeno?

He's a truck driver. A Walmart truck driver.

But more than that, he's a Walmart truck driver who recently passed the four million mile mark without an accident. He's apparently the first Walmart truck driver to achieve that. It took him 31 years and four months to do it.

And so, Walmart leadership flew Greeno to company headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas, for the regular Saturday corporate management meeting, where he was scheduled to presented with a custom-made red tractor emblazoned with his name and his safety record.

"There was a half-dozen times there when the Lord was riding with me," Greeno is reported to have said before the ceremony. "I was just waiting for the thump and the crash but it never happened."
