NEW YORK, Oct. 19, 2016 — Drexel Hamilton, LLC, a service-disabled veteran-owned broker-dealer, announced today that the firm will participate in a second consecutive Veterans Day “Charity Day” in support of America’s veterans.
Building on the success of last year’s event, Drexel Hamilton will donate a portion of its gross equities commissions on Friday, November 11 – Veterans Day – to Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund and two other reputable Veteran Charities.
“Drexel Hamilton is proud to once again partner with these great organizations that share our mission of serving our returning military heroes,” said Lawrence K. Doll, Chairman and Founder of Drexel Hamilton, who is a service-disabled United States Marine Corps veteran and Purple Heart recipient. “We believe that we need to provide for those who have sacrificed for our country, and are thrilled to be able to contribute to these organizations.”
The Lead the Way Fund was founded by the Gold Star father of an Army Ranger and provides invaluable support to veterans. The Fund was established in honor of Sgt. James J. Regan, who was killed in Iraq on February 9, 2007, during his fourth deployment while serving with the Charlie Company, 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment.
“We have a number of Army Rangers here at Drexel Hamilton, so we know first-hand the extreme circumstances facing those Rangers returning home,” said Doll. “The Lead The Way Fund is doing tremendous work supporting those Rangers, and we’re happy to partner with them for a second consecutive year.”
Those wishing to participate in Drexel Hamilton’s “Charity Day” can contact any sales representative or call the equity trading desk at 212-632-0403.
