Spectrum Industries Salutes Veterans Day

In the wake of a highly charged election season, Spectrum gladly slows down to honor a non-political holiday: Veterans Day. Started as Armistice Day in 1918 to honor World War I veterans, it was made a legal holiday in 1938, and was changed to Veterans Day in 1954 to honor all United States veterans.

We would like to honor all of our veterans on this day, but especially one of Spectrum’s own. Longtime employee Kris Maloney surprised many of us when he enlisted during the Iraq War. He honorably served our country, and Spectrum Industries gladly took him back into the workforce after his tour. Kris presented us with a flag that was flown in Spectrum’s honor on January 1, 2010 over Compound V Camp Cropper during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Kris continues to be an asset on the production floor, and we are lucky to have him as part of our family! We greatly appreciate Kris and the rest of the 24.9 million United States veterans as well – right down to the sole surviving World War I veteran, Frank Buckles. In the United States, we can count ourselves fortunate to lead the lives we have - due in part to veterans’ selfless efforts toward the defense and freedom of our country.


THANK YOU!
