Personalized Flag Honoring Military Service Presented To Connecticut Family By Frontier Communications

Stocks in this article: FTR

Frontier Communications (NASDAQ:FTR) presented a personalized “Honor and Remember” flag to the family of U.S. Army Captain Andrew Pedersen-Keel, who died in action on March 11, 2014 in Jalrez District, Afghanistan. Captain Pedersen-Keel, 28, was assigned to the 1 st Battalion, 3 rd Special Forces Group out of Fort Bragg, N.C.

The flag was presented to Captain Pedersen-Keel’s mother and stepfather, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Keiser, during a ceremony on May 3, 2014 in Somers, Conn. The flag was personalized with Captain Pedersen-Keel’s name and date of death. In addition to Congressman Joe Courtney (CT-2), a member of the House of Representatives who serves on the Armed Services Committee, numerous Frontier employees were in attendance to honor this fallen hero. Gregg Barratt, Assistant Vice President of Frontier’s National Veterans Committee and State Captain for the Patriot Guard Riders in Connecticut, was among the many Riders present at the ceremony.

Featuring a gold star, eternal flame and folded flag over a red background, the Honor and Remember Flag is part of a national campaign of remembrance symbolizing gratitude and respect for those who make the ultimate sacrifice in military service.

“It was a beautiful, sunny day in Somers, with a huge crowd gathered for the 2014 New England Regional Chili Cook Off, said Barratt. “Hundreds fell silent during the flag presentation to the Keisers. It was an extremely moving event for all who were privileged to participate.”

Frontier supports the Honor and Remember Flag program as part of its national commitment to recognize the contributions of U.S. military veterans. Frontier has been recognized as a 2014 “Top 100” Military Friendly Employer® and is an active member of Joining Forces, the 100,000 Jobs Mission, the Military Spouse Employment Program and other coalitions and initiatives that help employ veterans and reservists.

“Frontier’s workforce is 100 percent U.S.-based and veterans and reservists comprise 11 percent of total employees. Support for veterans and military families is more than the right thing to do, it is the smart thing to do,” said Dan McCarthy, President and Chief Operating Officer of Frontier. “Military veterans understand the value of teamwork and bring directly transferrable skills that benefit our customers, employees and the communities we serve.”
