recently honored area veterans with ceremonies and tributes during its Third Annual Bring a Veteran to Work Day at the company’s Fulton, Md. headquarters. The event included a moving keynote address from Captain Joseph Stewart, USN (Ret.), former Surface Warfare Officer, former Executive Officer to the Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency during Sept. 11th, 2001, and past Naval Academy professor.
Additional guests included Army Captain Patrick Horan, USA (Ret.), an Iraq War Veteran; Gold Star Mothers, American mothers who lost sons or daughters in service of the United States Armed Forces; members of the NewDay Five who achieved the top enlisted rank in their respective branch of military service; and reps from Baltimore Station, a residential treatment program supporting veterans and others who are transitioning through the cycle of poverty, addiction and homelessness to the path of self-sufficiency.
“Having local veterans here at our Maryland headquarters is an encouraging reminder to our staff and executives of the work we do every day in service to our veteran community,” said NewDay’s executive chairman, Rear Admiral Thomas C. Lynch, USN (Ret.) “Our Third Annual Veteran’s Appreciation Day is dedicated to the commitment and sacrifice veterans and their families make for our country.”
In addition to providing much needed financial services to veterans and service members, NewDay USA team members volunteer hundreds of hours each year at a Baltimore Station, laying and retrieving wreaths at Arlington National Cemetery, and washing veteran monuments on the National Mall. NewDay USA is a Platinum Sponsor of the Global War on Terror Memorial Foundation, an active supporter of the Medal of Honor Foundation, and the USO.
