Dante Correa, service apprentice PSE&G Audubon Gas, recently returned after a year of service overseas with the United States Air Force 1st Expeditionary Civil Engineer Group. Upon returning to work, Dante presented an American flag which was proudly flown in action recognizing the Audubon Gas Shop to his supervisor, Ken Mackin.
“Words cannot express this special gesture from Dante on our behalf as he was protecting our American freedom overseas,” said Mackin. “Dante you are an American Hero, thank you for this wonderful gesture and for your service to our country.”
The service flag will be displayed in the trophy case in Audubon for all to see.
“Our country’s veterans are exceptional leaders and trained professionals who add tremendous value to our workforce,” said Joe Forline, VP Gas Operations. “As a company dedicated to service and operational excellence, we’re extremely proud of Dante and all of our employees who served in the U.S. armed forces. Thank you for this special honor.”
PSEG recently received the “We Value Our Veterans” award, presented by Gov. Phil Murphy, for PSEG’s efforts to support veterans and promote a military-friendly environment.
PSEG was recognized for the appreciation and support the company provides for employees who are veterans, as well as active-duty or reservists in the National Guard. The award also recognized the efforts of PSEG’s Veterans Employee Business Resource Group for its work volunteering and working with local veteran’s support organizations in the communities we serve.
