Gary Pelletier from "American Loggers" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

The fifth son born on November 21, 1958, Gary Pelletier first went to work for his dad doing odd jobs in the company garage in Millinocket while waiting to report for basic training at Fort Dix, New Jersey. He had graduated early from high school, enlisted in the U.S. Army early in June of 1976, but was placed on inactive duty until he turned 18 the following February.

After basic training, Gary ("American

Loggers") served first as a heavy equipment operator and truck driver at Fort Campbell, Kentucky followed by a tour of duty in as a truck driver in Kaiserslautern, Germany. In 1980, his father called him on the phone while he was still overseas and Gary remembers to this day having the conversation while lying on his bunk. He asked his father if he should come home to work for the family business or reenlist with the expectation of a promotion. His father said, "Yeah, we have work for you."

Over the next 15 years, Gary worked with his father both to develop the use of double trailers to haul logs and to expand the business into road maintenance and graveling, first for Great Northern Paper and later for their own operations. His job today is to keep the logging roads in shape for trucking which, depending on the season, could mean plowing snow or graveling and grading. The brothers agree that all of the brothers can do most of the jobs in the company but each has fallen into what they seem to do most often. He met and married Diane Guerette on August 6, 1982, and they have three children: Derek, Melissa and Tyler.
