Stocks in this article: HUM

Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), a leading health and well-being company, has been awarded the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, in honor of its commitment to supporting National Guard and Reserve employees.

Humana received the award at the 18th annual Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award ceremony on September 26 in Washington, D.C.

“This week, we honor members of the National Guard and Reserve who carry that legacy forward,” said President Barack Obama. “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.”

The award ceremony took place at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C. Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) formally recognized 15 employers that had been named recipients of this year’s Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award. Previous award recipients and Department of Defense leadership were in attendance, in addition to trade associations and civilian government leaders.

“This is a tremendous achievement to be named a recipient of such a high honor from the Secretary of Defense. We are especially proud of all of our associates who are committed to both Humana and our great nation by serving in the National Guard and Reserves,” said Tim McClain, President of Humana Government Business. “Our long history with the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs confirms Humana’s commitment to not only delivering health care solutions to our government partners, but providing service and a source of employment to our nation’s heroes and their families.”

Through its wholly owned subsidiary Humana Government Business, Humana has a long history supporting military and Veterans’ health care administrating health-benefits for over three million active duty, retired military personnel and their families under the Department of Defense’s TRICARE program. In addition, Humana Government Business provides an array of health care solutions for the Department of Veteran Affairs.
