Last week, Gov. Jack Markell, in conjunction with the Joint Military Affairs Committee, a group comprised of members of the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce and the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce, unveiled a plaque honoring the first Delaware Warrior Friendly Business Award winners. Displayed prominently in the Governor’s Wilmington office, the award will be updated each year as new winners are announced.
Phoenix Restoration, from Newport won the Small Employer category and Christiana Care Health System won the Large Employercategory for their ongoing support of the men and women who serve the state and nation.
The employers were honored in July at the Delaware Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (DE ESGR) Annual Awards Recognition Banquet at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington.
