Truck with engine running and foot on the brake will not
disengage from the park position,unless you take off the
silver trim accent surrounding the gear shift lever & push
in the overdrive mechanism.

Why is the vehicle continuing to do this even after you return it to Park?
Check your brake lights - are they working? Very likely not. The brake light switch on the brake pedal is likely faulty. And / or the wiring connector at the switch. Check there first.
Brake lights are working.
Dave had a good suggestion, that's the first thing to check.
Since the brake lights are working, check the shift interlock solenoid. It might failed and stuck in a closed position, locking the shift lever.
