When Frontier asked employees in West Virginia to help reach 4,000 hours of volunteer service to help veterans, a lot of them said "we'll do it!"
Teams quickly came together to find opportunities to honor those who serve our country throughout the state.
One volunteer has been a long-time supporter of the Honors Flight Huntington, which brings veterans up to Washington, D.C. to provide a day of honor and recognition to WWI, Korean and Vietnam veterans. As a member of the Honor Flight committee, she helps to raise money year-round to fund the flights.
Part of the welcome home this organization provides includes a “mail call” in which veterans are presented with a bundle of letters of thanks and gratitude from their fellow Americans. If you wish to collaborate too, you can find more information in the organization's web site www.honorflighthuntington.org.
In addition, this Frontier employee provides support to the luncheon for homeless veterans and care packages for veterans at the Veterans Administration home.
Many of our employees volunteer to honor and respect those who serve in the military as well as family members. It is an opportunity to know more about the stories and struggles of our veterans. One employee recalled learning about her grandfather and his role in the Battle of the Bulge in Belgium, during World War II. The Battle of the Bulge was the last major German offensive campaign of World War II.
Other Frontier employees represent our company at the annual Honor and Remember ceremony for Gold Star families held every year at Camp Dawson in Kingwood. During that time, the West Virginia National Guard recognizes families who have lost a loved one in combat. Frontier provides an Honor and Remember flag and certificate.
