In Honor of Veterans Day, Hickory Construction Recognizes Military Veterans on Staff

Category:

November 11 is a significant date as the country observes Veterans Day, a celebration to honor America’s military veterans who valiantly served their country and were willing to sacrifice for the common good. Hickory Construction is proud to have veterans amongst its team members.

“We value the contributions our team members make to the company, but we also have tremendous gratitude for those who served our country,” said Hickory Construction Chairman Burke Pinnell, who is a veteran. “We’re honored to employ military veterans at Hickory, and look to recognize them as we observe Veterans Day.”

Current military veterans at Hickory include:

  • Burke Pinnell, U.S. Army
  • Jim McMillan, U.S. Navy
  • John McMillan, U.S. Army
  • Kenny McCoig, U.S. Navy
  • John McBroom, U.S. Marine Corps
  • George Moore, U.S. Navy
  • Shawn West, U.S. Air Force
  • Bobby Henry, U.S. Army
  • Mike Harris, U.S. Marine Corps
  • Jeff Anderson, U.S. Navy
  • Paul Amos, U.S. Marine Corps, and currently serving in U.S. Naval Reserves
  • Brent Bolton, U.S. Marine Corps

Last year on Veterans Day, the newly constructed Blount County War Dead Memorial Plaza was unveiled during an annual Veterans Day ceremony. Hickory oversaw construction of the new memorial that now incorporates a plaza with walkways connecting all four monuments on the courthouse lawn and a bench to sit and reflect. These commemorative walkways, named The Veterans Walk of Honor, are lined with bricks engraved with the names of honored men and women who have served the country.
