Company’s VetNet Employee Resource Group Retires and Replaces Worn Flags Throughout Michigan
Comcast’s Flag Replacement Program is an extension of its ongoing dedication to supporting veterans and their families. Run through the VetNet employee group, an organization within the company that connects active military, veterans, military family members and military supporters, Comcast provides a meaningful service that directly impacts the community.
When a Comcast technician reports a distressed, faded, or torn US flag to the local VetNet employee group, the flag will be retired and replaced in accordance with military protocols, free of charge. Any home or business is eligible for the program, not just those that are subscribed to our services.
“It is a privilege for us to recognize the significance of the American flag to everyone in our communities, as well as honor our veterans and active-duty military members, through our Flag Replacement Program,” said Comcast Human Resources Director and VetNet Executive Sponsor Tammie Dunlop-Lyon. “It is also extremely meaningful and fulfilling for employees involved in the program who are also veterans, including myself.”
“The flag is a symbol of everything we fought for,” said Heartland Region VetNet Co-lead and Manager, Installation and Service, Brian Howard. “It is a symbol of freedom, democracy, and hope. I love the chance to put reminders throughout our community.”
