Wright Express Employees Honored for Their Patriotic Efforts

On Wednesday, July 10, John H. Bubar, Brigadier General of Maine Air National Guard in Augusta, visited Wright Express to present two employees with awards honoring their dedicated assistance to our nation's National Guard and Reserve. Honorees, Charlie Hawes and Jill Coale, received the accolades in recognition of their willing support of acceptance of Wright Express employee military obligations with the National Guard. Nominating employee was Maine Air National Guard Reservist Jeff Lane.

Guard and Reserve members comprise over 50% of our nation's defense forces. The "My Boss Is a Patriot" award was instituted by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a national organization formed to promote greater understanding between employers and on-call military members whose services are continually on the rise.
