At the front entry of The Wooten Company Headquarters on Tuesday, November 11th, a beautiful fall afternoon, with cupcakes and punch passed around, the Wooten team celebrated the Veterans among our staff. From the Korean War to the more recent War on Terrorism, we are graced with 10 employees who have served this country since as early as 1959.
The Wooten Company’s appreciation for the Soldiers of the United States of America didn’t end, or begin at the company’s front door. In early 2013, Clarence Lockamy, PE, Hickory Office, dedicated time and effort in the design and engineering of a Veterans Monument for the Town of Granite Falls, North Carolina.
At 11:11 a.m., on Tuesday, November 11, 2014, the Town of Granite Falls held a dedication ceremony, completing the final inspection of the Granite Falls Veterans Monument, with a dedication from Lt. Gen. Thomas C. Waskow honoring soldiers past, present and future.
As the week of November 11th continued on at The Wooten Company, memories continued to reverberate throughout the halls, and it wasn’t just he the trill of patriotic fanfare and whistling loudly displayed in Steve Player’s office. Staff continued to remember Veteran’s who made a difference in their lives, dating back as early as the 1940’s. The Wooten Company is proud to display the images of our past Veterans and will continue to commemorate the sacrifices provided by all those who have served.
