BALTIMORE (November 11, 2016) – As the nation honors its veterans today,
Baltimore Gas and Electric Company (BGE) also recognizes the men and women who chose to serve the country in the U.S. Armed Forces.
"It is so important to thank and honor our colleagues and neighbors who willingly chose to put their country first by serving in the military," said BGE CEO Calvin Butler Jr. "Veterans play an important role in our company by bringing their character, experience and values to the workplace every day. They make our country better, and, through them, we are all stronger."
BGE's more than 600 employee veterans and reservists currently serving received pins commemorating their service and acknowledging the commitment they have made to their country. BGE's chapter of the EMAC (Exelon Militaries Actively Connected) employee resource group facilitated and organized the honor, which is also being celebrated across the Exelon companies. EMAC provides a support network for Exelon employees and family members with prior, active or reserve duty military service.
"As an Army veteran, I am grateful to work for an organization that honors its veteran employees for our service to our nation," said EMAC chapter president and BGE Procurement Specialist Dawn Adams-Alexander. "We also appreciate that we can share our diverse experiences with our coworkers in an inclusive environment within the corporate workforce."
BGE is dedicated to its commitment to America's men and women in uniform and veterans, seeking opportunities to employ them throughout the company where their unique skills and talents can be utilized.
