“Our facility has 56 employees who have served, or are currently serving, in the armed forces,” Dunn said.

The Flag of Freedom award is presented to companies that hire veterans under the Show-Me Heroes program — an initiative announced by Gov. Jay Nixon in 2010 and designed to link veterans with employment opportunities.

The award is a plaque featuring an American flag patch that was worn on a combat uniform by a member of the Missouri National Guard while deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan.
