I would like to take a moment to share with you something that is close to the heart of all of us in the Telgian family. Tuesday night, we were extremely proud and moved as President Obama paid tribute to Army Sergeant Cory Remsburg, who was seated in the House Gallery during the President’s State of the Union address with his father Craig Remsburg, Telgian’s EVP of HR and Organizational Development. If you did not see the address, I urge you to take just a moment to view the short clip about Cory HERE.
We have all watched with admiration and awe the courage that Cory and his family have exhibited over the past several years as he has made a remarkable recovery from the injuries suffered in brave service to our country. With all politics strictly aside, the recognition of Cory during the State of the Union address was a proud moment for the Telgian family as Cory’s sacrifice and achievements were hailed in front of the nation by his Commander In Chief.
Craig Remsburg has expressed his appreciation for the support Telgian provided to him and his family so he could take the time he needed to care for his son. Supporting our returning servicemen and women is something we take extremely seriously, providing employees with the flexibility, income and support they need – particularly those returning from the recent conflicts in the Middle East and those who have sustained injuries in combat. We are proud to say that over 10 percent of our Telgian workforce is comprised of veterans. One of our goals has been to support our veterans and help enable them to achieve success as they return to civilian life.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to share this message with you, which is both personally important to me and my leadership team but also speaks to the Telgian culture we so highly value.
