NET DATA Employees Honor Veterans
by: Bobby McDonald
It was during the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, and the eleventh year, as owners, employees and staff at NET Data in Sulphur Springs paused to honor local veterans, with a flag raising ceremony, at their facilities, on Industrical Drive. Tory Humphries, President of NET Data, welcomed guests, as they made their way to the parking lot for a flag raising ceremony. Employee Brandon Stribling offered a prayer and Michael Dodd, led the group in singing God Bless America.
"We like so many others become engrossed in our every day lives and sometimes forget just what sacrifices have been made to allow us to come to work every day, go to church, attend sporting events, nurture our children to grow, and be free from harm," expressed Humphries. "So, we decided it was most important for all of us to pause and honor these veterans here today for the great sacrifices they have made in serving our country, to remember our troops who defend our freedoms today, and to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms!"
Following the brief ceremony, NET Data hosted a Hopkins County Stew, with all the trimmings, and homemade desserts, for the veterans and their families, that were in attendance!
NET Data employees are also collecting care boxes to be sent to the soldiers during the holiday season!
Thank You, Veterans,
From NET Data and Staff!!!
