Comcast Technicians Replace Distressed Flags While in the Field
Comcast military veterans and employees recently launched a “flag replacement program” to help local customers and non-customers alike show their American spirit.
This program is led by employees who participate in Comcast’s Veterans Network Employee Resource Group known as “VetNet”. Members include Comcast employees who are military veterans, active participants in the Reserves, military family members and other supporters of the military community. Many of the members are Comcast front-line technicians who notice distressed flags during their daily routes.
If a Comcast employee notices a worn-out flag at a home or business, the technician shares the location with the Comcast flag replacement team, who contacts the individual or business and offers to replace it – for free. Flags are replaced for residents, nonprofits, and small businesses, regardless of whether they are Comcast customers. The old flags are retired in accordance with military protocols.
Comcast is looking to replace worn American flags throughout its southeast region. Comcast employees have already begun the program and have replaced dozens of flags this month.
“I’m proud of our employees for launching this thoughtful program in our region,” said Jason Gumbs, Comcast Regional SVP. “Our teams take pride in supporting their communities, and this is especially meaningful for those employees who have served our country.”
Comcast is committed to supporting the military community and its veteran employees and families. To learn more about Comcast’s support of the military, click here.
