"We are honored and proud to be part of such a great country and want
nothing more than to give thanks to all of the men and women who serve
to protect our freedoms every day, especially our ITC Heroes," said CEO
Faruk Gole. "With the spirit of Thanksgiving in the air, we are not only
grateful for our Veterans but for all of our employees. Their
commitment, hard work and dedication to ITC define our company culture
and we are truly grateful for them."

United States Army

Ronald Coleman, Production Coordinator in Columbus served in the U.S.
Army from 1987 through 1989 as an Infantry Scout in the U.S. Army.

"One of the things I like most about ITC is the company recognizes
employees who go above and beyond expectations with different types of
incentives," said Coleman. "ITC feels more like a family environment
rather than a work environment."

In addition, Chuck Forsha was recognized for his service from 1973
through 1975 and 1983 through 1989.

United States Marines

In Phoenix, both Michael Hernandez, Production Control Specialist and
James Walker, Tooling Engineer were recognized for their service in the
U.S. Marines. Hernandez worked as Intel and served five combat
operations as a Sergeant. Walker worked as a 0311 Infantry Rifleman and
served on a combat deployment in Iraq and a tour around Southeast Asia.
As a Maintenance Lead, Tony Winkler served a six-year tour where he was
stationed at several different bases in the United States and abroad. In
addition, Ray Ray Limbrick was recognized for his service from 2001
through 2006.

"I quite literally owe the life I enjoy today to ITC as I came to
Phoenix from California with absolutely nothing," said Winkler.
"Everything I have today started with Johnnie's handshake and Beth's
‘welcome aboard.' I am eternally grateful for both."

United States Navy

George Williams, Inventory/Shipping Coordinator at ITC's Columbus plant
served four years, including one tour in the Mediterranean as an
Equipment Operator (E-O). Terri Wiggins, Shipping Manager in Phoenix
served one tour of duty. In addition, Eric Smith was recognized for his
service from 2007 through 2011.

"ITC has helped me expand in many areas throughout the company. I love
its diversity and sense of family," said Wiggins.

Other ITC heroes recognized during the month of November were Ron Petty
and Joe Grafe for their service in the Army National Guard.

Recently, ITC Manufacturing distributed more than 200 frozen turkeys for
the Thanksgiving holiday to all its employees in both Phoenix and
Columbus as a way to say thank you. This event happens annually and is
one of ITC's favorite traditions. ITC Manufacturing has been committed
to hiring veterans and reservist members for a number of years and is
part of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).
