Qualfon, a mission-driven business process outsourcing (BPO) company and global provider of contact center services, honored veteran employees during Veterans Day celebrations at its contact centers across the U.S. In addition to ceremonies and luncheons, Qualfon is capturing many of the employees’ pictures and stories to compile in a video that will salute members of the Armed Forces.
“Many of our employees are soldiers, sailors, aviators, marines, and coast guards who have served our country with honor. On Veterans Day, we want to show our appreciation and thank them for the sacrifices they have made so that millions of Americans can live free,” said Kaycie Miller, Mission Office Coordinator at Qualfon Liberty Lake, Washington, where Qualfon honored 16 veterans with an open mic ceremony introducing employees and inviting them to share their patriotism and stories of service.
Matthew Carleton, Site Director at Qualfon Liberty Lake and veteran of the United States Army and Army National Guard said, “Whether our veterans landed at Inchon Harbor in 1950, cleared the jungle around Kason firebase in 1968, stood your post on the Czechoslovakian frontier in 1974, participated in the Panamanian and Grenadian liberations in the 1980’s, or served in Iraq or Afghanistan—regardless—we all share a common bond of service to each other and the Nation. All took the oath. All wore the suit and all stood in the gap between those that would steel our liberties and take our lives. Many never come home. Remember them all in your prayers. The land of the free does not exist without the brave.”
