By John Hinman, Managing Director with Nexus 5 Group
Every year, on the 4th of July, I think about the sacrifices our armed forces make for us to preserve the freedoms that we so often take for granted. This year, I want to take it a step further and publicly thank every person that serves, or has served, in any of our armed forces. Thank you for your service!
In addition, I would like to personally thank three of our Nexus 5 Group team members that served.
Charlie Green (Superintendent) served in the United States Airforce from 1981-1985, Rank E4, Buck Sargent.
Charlie was an air-conditioning and refrigeration specialist and then moved to Supply. Charlie was in the Air National Guard stationed at Rosecrans Airforce Base, St. Joseph, Mo. He joined the service to learn a trade and had several family and friends who had done the same thing.
Thank you, Charlie for your service!!!
