December, 2011McConnell Jones Lanier & Murphy, LLP (MJLM), one of the nation’s largest minority-owned accounting and business advisory firms, are sending soldiers overseas a heartfelt thank you for their leadership and dedication this holiday season. With admiration for American soldiers, the Houston office of MJLM gathered to write a special message to the soldiers in battle.
Managing Partner, Ira Wayne McConnell says, “As a United States Army veteran, and someone who employees many retired soldiers, I feel it’s our social responsibility to support our troops overseas.” According to McConnell, the firm’s Houston office spends more than 1,000 hours a year on community activities. Additionally, the firm’s Engineering & Technical Services affiliate, based in Huntsville, Alabama, has a staff which includes numerous military veterans who work closely with the US Department of Defense to provide Integrated Logistics Support and Program Management services.
Holiday Mail for Heroes is an initiative through the American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes, to ensure all Americans have an opportunity to send a message from home this holiday season to members of the U.S. military, veterans and their families; many of whom will be far away from home this holiday season. Both organizations will collect and distribute the holiday cards in the United States and around the world.
