Honoring Veterans Day 2011


Today is Veterans Day, a time designated for honoring those who have served as members of the armed forces. We celebrate our veterans on this day because it is the anniversary of the armistice that ended the First World War. As we welcome home our soldiers this holiday season, let us remember that our support is still needed.

In honor of Veterans Day and the upcoming holiday season, our Corporate Social Responsibility team will once again be supporting Trees for Troops by donating one tree per BlueCity, or city that we fly to, to a military family. Trees for Troops is a program run by the Christmas Spirit Foundation along with their friends at FEDEX and has been around since 2005. Trees are collected at various locations across the country during the first weekend in December. The trees are then sent via FEDEX to military bases all over the world to be distributed to military families.
