WCQS Awarded a Military Commendation

Jun 9, 2015

Josh Jourdan and David Ponder present a 'Patriotic Employer' commendation to WCQS Music Director Dick Kowal.

Just before Josh Jourdan was deployed for active duty, we learned that Dick Kowal and WCQS were being awarded a special commendation. The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, an extension of the Office of the Secretary of Defense, recognized Dick Kowal and WCQS as a Patriotic Employer for contributing to national security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America's National Guard and Reserve force.

On Friday, June 5th, David E. Ponder, a representative of the North Carolina Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve presented WCQS Music Director Dick Kowal with the commendation. Petty Officer Jourdan was also on hand in his Navy Whites to help Mr. Ponder present the award. 

WCQS wishes to thank Mr. Ponder and Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve for the recognition. We know you join WCQS in our support of Josh Jourdan and look forward to his safe return next year.
