Wreaths Across America
Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, the mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 2,100 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea and abroad.
2020 is the 6th annual year that Pegasus has contributed to the program. Pegasus donated 50 wreaths this year to the Georgia National Cemetery to help meet their goal of 16,100 wreaths.
Toys for Tots
In 1991, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation was created at the behest of the Marine Corps. Their basic mission is to collect new unwrapped toys and through the gift of a new toy, help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America's less fortunate children.
Pegasus Support Services is honored to participate for the 4th year. Last year, we were able to donate over 200 toys to those children in need. Our goal for 2022 is 300 toys!
Cherokee County Homeless Veterans
The Cherokee County Homeless Veteran program has been around for about 7 years and supports homeless veterans and those near homelessness in the Cherokee County area. The program is completed staffed by volunteers and is active throughout the year helping veterans and their families.
Pegasus Support Services found out about this local program and decided to help 20 families that the program sponsors by donating Kroger gift cards. Our corporate office also collected coats to donate to their annual winter coat drive where their goal was 1,000 coats.
ESGR Statement of Support
The intent of the Statement of Support program is to increase employer support by encouraging employers to act as advocates for employee participation in the military. Supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the Nation’s Guard and Reserve units.
Pegasus Support Services has signed a statement of support and pledged that:
We full recognize, honor, and comply with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act.
We will provide our managers and supervisors with the tools they need to effectively manage employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
We appreciate the values, leadership, and unique skills Service members bring to the workforce and will encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen, Reservists, and Veterans.
We will continually recognize and support our country's Service members and their families, in peace, in crises, and in war.
Pegasus Support Services was recently awarded a contract for the Base Operations & Maintenance Services (BOMSS) at Fort Stewart & Hunter Army Airfield.
Fort Stewart is located near Hinesville, GA, 41 miles southwest of Savannah, GA and is the home of the 3rd Infantry Division which is the Army's Premier Power Projection Platform on the Atlantic Coast. It is the largest, most effective and efficient armor training base east of the Mississippi, covering 280,000 acres. Tank, field artillery, helicopter gunnery, and small arms ranges operate simultaneously throughout the year.
Hunter Army Airfield is in historic Savannah, GA and is home to the Army's longest runway on the east coast (11,375 feet) and the Truscott Air Deployment Terminal. Together these assets can deploy units such as the heavy, armored forces of the 3rd Infantry Division or the elite light fighters of the 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment.
