Werner Enterprises Honors Its Own Veterans

A local company gave it's employees a chance to remember America's veterans.

Werner Enterprises held it's own Veterans Day ceremony Friday morning in the lobby of it's headquarters in Sarpy County.

They remembered all those who have served, and honored veterans who currently work for the company.

The event also featured the "Remember the Fallen" exhibit which commemorates men and women of Nebraska and western Iowa who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"We try to make it the sobering, yet celebratory day that it deserves to be," said Werner president, Derek Leathers. "Celebrating what they've sacrificed their lives for and reminding ourselves of the sacrifices they've made."

More than 20 percent of Werner Enterprises' current workforce are military veterans.
