WWE receives first-ever Corporate Patriot Award
May 19, 2008
At the annual GI Film Festival in Washington D.C., WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair accepted the first-ever Corporate Patriot Award on behalf of the company for its continuous support of U.S. troops. Over the past five years, WWE has visited our troops on more than 200 occasions including its annual Tribute to the Troops for soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. The honor is one of many received by the company for its ongoing support of U.S. troops worldwide. Others include the Legacy of Hope Award in 2004 from the USO of Metropolitan Washington, the Three Commander Coin Award from the Army Air Force Exchange Service in 2005, and both the company and WWE Chairman Vince McMahon received the Secretary of Defense Exceptional Public Service Award in 2006.
