Company’s VetNet Employee Resource Group Retires and Replaces Worn Flags Throughout the South
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.
“Helping to ensure the American flag retains its glory within the community is a responsibility we at VetNet are proud to take on,” said Military Representative and VetNet lead Hillary Hesseltine. “This program is a way for our employees, including Comcast service members, to continue to give back, as well as offer them an opportunity to respect, honor, retire, and replace tattered flags. These flags are not only a representation of patriotism but also a recognition of the significant contributions of all our service members and their families.”
