Frontier Communications honors veterans with ceremony in Charleston

Posted: Updated:

Frontier Communications held a special ceremony on Wednesday afternoon in Charleston to honor the nation's veterans and the men and women in the military who lost their lives in service.

This special ceremony was being held in conjunction with Memorial Day and was one of 50 ceremonies that Frontier is conducting throughout its service area to honor military personnel who lost their lives.

During each ceremony, Frontier installs an Honor and Remember Flag as a lasting acknowledgement of the price that military veterans have paid for our freedom.

In 2006, Frontier established a veteran hiring program and has teamed with the Employer Partnership of the Armed Forces, the 100,000 Jobs Mission and the Joining Forces Initiative to ensure veterans have employment opportunities.

Today, military veterans make up 11 percent of Frontier's work force.
