Gulfstream honors employees who are military veterans

More than 1,500 Gulfstream employees attended the company’s military appreciation day, held Wednesday, to recognize employees who have been members of the U.S. armed forces.

As part of the event held in Hangar 1 adjacent to the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport, the company awarded a $60,000 scholarship to the Sentinels of Freedom, a nonprofit organization that dispenses aid to benefit veterans who have been severely injured in the line of duty. Scholarship recipients U.S. Army Lt. Jake Murphy and U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Josiah White were on hand.

The event also included the American Legion Post 184 Color Guard based in Thunderbolt.

Gulfstream has approximately 2,500 veterans in its overall workforce, including about 1,800 at its Savannah headquarters. The total number of employees is more than 12,500.
