GEICO recognized for support of the military

Patriot Day CeremonySince GEICO opened in 1936, military personnel – whether active duty, guard, reserve or retired – have held a special place among policyholders. Today, GEICO supports the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, the USO, Armed Services YMCA, Tragedy Assistance Program, and The Fisher House Foundation. On Patriot Day this month, Warner Robins Air Force Base personnel visited GEICO’s Macon, Georgia, office and presented GEICO with an award for its “Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.”

Amanda McNair was among the presenters. She is a service representative in the Macon office AND a technical sergeant in the Air Force Reserves, who reports to Warner Robins Air Force base for her reserve duty. In his comments during the brief presentation ceremony, the base’s senior representative, Major Steve Miner, the 413 Force Support Flight Commander, explained that McNair has informed him of all GEICO has done to support her, not only by facilitating the ease of her leave but by ensuring her transition back into the GEICO family was smooth. Major Miner also mentioned that many other reserve members at his base work at GEICO and have also spoken highly of the support the company provides.

After the awards were presented, Joe Easterling, GEICO’s health services & leave administration supervisor, closed the ceremony by thanking the Air Force personnel and expressing GEICO’s pride in being recognized for its support of the military.

“Having served in the USAFR,” Easterling said, “I know the difficulties that those who serve in the Armed Forces have to face. The real honor belongs to those who serve and the sacrifices they make, having to transition between their military duties and their civilian jobs, which is no easy task. I am proud to work for a company where supporting the armed forces is a top priority.”
