C1 Springfield receives Flag of Freedom award

Mr. Al Smith presents the Flag of Freedom award to C1 Springfield staff.

C1 Springfield was recently nominated by the State of Missouri for the Flag of Freedom Award, which recognizes businesses that go above and beyond in supporting our veterans as part of the Show Me Heroes program. The Show Me Heroes program is designed to connect military veterans with job opportunities when they return home from service. Employers participating in the Show-Me Heroes program sign a pledge to reach out to, recruit and interview veterans for job openings at their businesses.

We were notified on Thursday, May 3 that we won and Mr. Al Smith, Vet Rep with the Missouri Career Center, presented us with the award.

Interesting fact: The flag patch in the award was actually worn by a soldier while on deployment in Kuwait in 2010.

C1 Springfield is extremely honored to receive the Flag of Freedom award and would like to thank the State of Missouri for recognizing us.
