EXAIR’s U.S. Armed Services Veterans

We have a lot to be thankful for and owe a debt of appreciation to our service personnel past and present. EXAIR honored our employees that served by awarding them a commemorative plaque. Each branch of the armed services were served by one of our employees.

Also the Grand Lodge of Ohio Masons presented them with a commemorative medallion celebrating the laying of the cornerstone at Perry’s Monument Put-In-Bay, Ohio.

Perry’s Monument is the only federal monument dedicated to peace.  The memorial is a great Doric Column of pink-white granite 45 feet in diameter and 352 tall. Beneath the stone floor of the monuments lie the remains of three U.S. officers and three British officers.

Thank you EXAIR veterans and all veterans. Your service appreciated and humbling.
