JAXPORT this week recognized its 41 veteran employees with a special Veterans Day luncheon served by the port’s executive team. It is a JAXPORT tradition for the port’s senior leadership to serve lunch to this group in gratitude for their military service.
More than a quarter of JAXPORT’s 153 employees are veterans and they represent all five branches of the military. JAXPORT’s veterans have a combined 450 years of military service.
“It’s important for us to take a moment to recognize our veterans for everything they’ve done to protect our nation and our freedom,” said JAXPORT CEO Eric Green. “JAXPORT benefits tremendously from the dedication, discipline and integrity these employees developed during their time in the military. We are grateful for their past service to our country and current service to our port community.”
