Question: My Truck won't start.

Started this morning. Drove it about 300 feet. Parked it. Came back 3 hours later it won't start. Battery is charged up and all electrical seems to be working. There is no sound at all, doesn't seem to draw from battery. Charger on battery when trying to start show no effect of starting action.
