A Veterans Day Tribute to AAA Employees and Families

veterans day

Each Veterans Day, AAA Northeast, honors employees and family members of employees who have served in the U.S. military.

Some of our employees shared what military service means to them.

Bradford Ellsworth, U.S. Air Force, 1983-1988
Approved Auto Repair Specialist, Providence, R.I.

Bradford achieved the rank of staff sergeant and served as support staff during conflicts. He received the Air Force Achievement Medal while serving in the special operations group RED HORSE (rapid engineer deployable heavy operational repair squadron engineer) in Osan, Korea.

“Being a veteran means knowing I served my country and made a difference in doing so.”

Timothy Hamoy, U.S. Marine Corps, 1991-1995
Senior Member Relations Counselor, Garden City, N.Y.

Timothy earned the rank of corporal and received humanitarian awards for helping in Cuba and Haiti during his service.

“Being a veteran means that you were willing to give all for your country and your fellow Marines. It’s a bond only the few and the proud can experience, unlike anything regular civilians will know. It is something to be very proud of.”

Tim Longo, U.S. Navy, 1985-1991, Persian Gulf War
Senior Systems Administrator, Wayne, N.J.

Tim said he followed his dreams into the Navy, because he had a longtime interest in submarine service. He earned the rank of petty officer 2nd class and honors including a submarine qualified breast insignia, Navy expeditionary medal, Southwest Asia service medal with a bronze star, a sea service deployment ribbon with three bronze stars, an Arctic service ribbon, a national defense medal and multiple letters of commendation. He was also inducted into Order of the Blue Nose, a designation for sailors who cross the Arctic Circle while serving.

Thank you to all who have served our country.
