Orange City, IA – Quatro Composites held a flag raising ceremony in recognition of Veterans Day and specifically, veterans employed at the facility, to honor their service in the U.S. Armed Forces. Production within the plant was stopped during this time and there was a special Veterans Day reading.
Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11 in recognition of the historic day on November 11, 1918 in which the fighting ceased during World War I – “The Great War”. According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, this date is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”
“We are honored to recognize our fellow team members who have served our great country,” says VP of Operations Joe Ivy. “Volunteers came in on a rainy Saturday morning to pour cement and remove dirt in order for this display to be possible. We are blessed with incredible people at Quatro, which also includes some outstanding veterans.”
