U.S. Bank Accepts Freedom Award In Washington D.C. Ceremony

Stocks in this article: USB

Richard Davis, chairman, president and chief executive officer of U.S. Bancorp (NYSE:USB), led a delegation of U.S. Bank employees to accept the Freedom Award from the Secretary of Defense and Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve on Thursday, Sept. 26, at a ceremony in Washington D.C.

U.S. Bank is one of only 15 companies chosen to receive this year’s award from 2,900 nominations. The Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award is the highest honor given to employers in recognition of the company’s commitment to supporting National Guard and Reserve employees.

“This week, we honor members of the National Guard and Reserve who carry that legacy forward,” said President Barack Obama in a September 20 proclamation honoring the award recipients. “We thank the employers who support them; and we reaffirm our promise to provide our troops, our veterans, and our military families with the opportunities they have earned.”

“It is inspiring and a great honor to be recognized by our nation’s leaders for the work that thousands of U.S. Bank employees have done and continue to do to make our company a great place to work for veterans and active duty soldiers,” Davis said. “We are humbled and deeply grateful for the service and sacrifice of our military families, and will continue to build a legacy of support for those who have given so much on behalf of our country.”

The 2013 award recipients include large and small businesses, as well as public sector agencies that have gone above and beyond their legal obligations to military employees, offering formal and informal initiatives that ensure service members and their families are taken care of throughout all types of military service. The recipients’ measures of support included creating special hiring programs, providing personal support to families such as home maintenance, and continuing full benefits, salary and additional paid leave options during deployment.
