Published on November 12, 2014 – CareFirst BCBS
Many CareFirst associates who served in the U.S. military gathered in Canton, CASCI and UCP on Tuesday morning to participate in CareFirst’s Veterans Day ceremonies that recognized their sacrifices and gave them the opportunity to talk about their days in the Armed Forces.
Associates also learned more about the company’s new Military/Veteran Associate Resource Group, led by Julie Fisher, Vice President of Service Operations in the Small & Medium Group SBU. Fisher shared the group’s proposed mission statement and later accompanied some associates who traveled to Garrison Forest Veterans Cemetery in Baltimore County to pay their respect to those soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice.
The Veterans Day ceremony in Canton featured keynote speaker Lt. Col. Brian Borakove, a commanding officer, First Battalion in the 175th infantry of the Maryland Army National Guard. His speech was webcasted to associates in UCP and CASCI.
