Health Net Federal Services honors those lost on 9/11

Article - Monday, September 11, 2006


The impact of 9/11 blanketed our country in pain and taught us that the price of freedom can come at a cruel and unbearable price. Many of us felt helpless in the aftermath as we watched families deal with the tragedy and move forward and we, as a nation, struggled to regain our pride and strength in our country. 

This month, as our great nation remembers and reflects on the events and aftermath of the attacks, Health Net Federal Services president, Steve Tough, offers his associates a unique opportunity to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11. “To commemorate the five-year anniversary of 9/11, I am proud to announce Health Net Federal Services’ Pentagon Memorial Fund Donation Program,” said Tough.

Throughout the month of September, all monetary donations made to the fund by Health Net Federal Services associates will be matched dollar for dollar by the Company, to help build the Pentagon Memorial.

“Several of us lost friends and family that day, and as a leading Department of Defense contractor that ‘serves those who serve,’ we personally felt the loss of the one hundred and twenty-five service members who died in the Pentagon attack,” said Tough.

Health Net Federal Services associates are raising all they can, above and beyond the Company's charitable gift of $250,000 to The Pentagon Memorial Fund, made earlier this year. Their contributions support the effort to raise the millions of dollars still needed to complete and maintain what will become a tribute of American history.

“This memorial would not be possible without the incredible generosity of companies like Health Net,” said President of the Pentagon Memorial Fund, James J. Laychak. “Health Net is a tremendous partner in the fundraising and ultimate completion of the Pentagon Memorial and I know I speak for the family members of those who lost loved ones on 9/11 when I say, ‘Thank you.’”
