This Veterans Day, KEP gave thanks to all of the veterans who have served our country as part of the armed forces.
We can’t talk about these honorable folks without giving a special shout out to the veterans on the KEP team!
Throughout the years KEP has been proud to employ veterans. One of our veterans, Mark McCune, has been working with us since 1990 as a compounder.
After Mark served in conjunction with NATO in the Arabian Peninsula, he joined the Army reserves and during this time was hired at our Kent facility. In 1990 Mark’s unit was called to serve and he was placed in action during the Iraq invasion of Kuwait. After a year of serving, Mark was welcomed back to his job at Kent. He’s been with us ever since – Thank you for your service and your commitment to KEP, Mark!
John Bragg works as a Shift Supervisor in our Mogadore facility – and has been a KEP employee since 1988!
A veteran of the Ohio Army National Guard, John served from 1985-1993 as part of I-Troop, 3rd Squadron, 107th Cavalry Regiment stationed in Stow, Ohio. John’s rank was Specialist 4th Class but he was also acting Communications Chief. When John isn’t helping to ensure our operations are running smoothly, John enjoys spending time with his family. We’re lucky to have you on our team, John, and we thank you for your service!
On our team since 2015, Leo Maxfield runs our maintenance program at our Mogadore facility.
Leo is a veteran of the US Army who served from July 1986 to July 1989, stationed at Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Maryland. Specialist 4th Class, Leo served as a US Army Medic – Now he dedicates his time to being a great KEP team member and a proud husband, father of five and first-time Grandpa. Thank you for your time and your service!
Another Army veteran, Jeremy Hosey, has been an employee since 2017 and is currently an extrusion operator at our Mogadore facility, where we specialize in on-site dip molding and dipped natural rubber latex tubing.
Jeremy was in the Army stationed at Fort Wainwright, Alaska for 3 1/2 years. He was in the infantry as a Specialist, E-4 and ended his obligation in May 2016. We’re glad to have you, Jeremy!
Bob doesn’t often talk about his own history though. Serving in the United States Army Military Police Corps from 1976-1979, Bob was stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky and in Wildflecken, West Germany. Bob joined the KEP team a few years after completing his service, in 1981. Thank you for your service to our country, and for continuing to make KEP a great place to work!
Thank You – to All Veterans – for Your Service!
