COLONIAL CONTRIBUTES TO NATIONAL GUARD MEMORIAL IN LOUISIANA



NEW ROADS, La.
- On Sunday, May 6th, members of the Louisiana National Guard's "Ironhorse" unit located in New Roads, La. held a dedication ceremony for a memorial wall honoring soldiers they lost during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Colonial's Lines 1 and 2 traverse through the city of New Roads and we have traditionally maintained good relationships with the city. Colonial donated $1500 to the New Roads Lion's Club who funded construction of the wall.

Four current Colonial employees once served in the Ironhorse unit. HSE Director Mike Smith, Process Safety Coordinator Wade Weller, and Senior Operator Daniel Brumley are pictured here with First Lieutenant Brandon Switzer during the memorial service. GCD Director of Operations Adam Wolfe also formerly served in the unit. All told, the four combined for five deployments to Afghanistan or Iraq, numerous hurricane and other state emergency activations and over 50 years of total service.

Colonial is proud of its employees with military service and we honor all soldiers that gave the ultimate sacrifice on this Memorial Day
