Frontier plans ceremony for fallen soldiers
Frontier Communications plans to hold a special ceremony Wednesday morning to honor veterans and those who lost their lives in service to the nation.
The company is inviting the public to attend the ceremony, which begins at 11 a.m. in front of its offices at 1500 MacCorkle Avenue in Charleston.
Frontier employees, including those who served in the military, will join local and company officials to honor veterans during the event. During the ceremony, Frontier will install an Honor and Remember Flag as a lasting acknowledgement of the price that military veterans have paid to secure the nation's freedom.
"Frontier has a strong commitment to members of the military," said Dana Waldo, Frontier senior vice president and West Virginia general manager. "Our military men and women were there for us. It's our turn to be here for them."
In 2006, Frontier chief executive Maggie Wilderotter established a veteran hiring program at the company to provide employment opportunities to returning members of the armed services.
Military veterans now make up 11 percent of Frontier's total work force.
