The Lieutenant General Richard Timmons Veterans Recruitment Award recognizes an ASLRRA member who has demonstrated a commitment to hiring and retaining veterans, as evidenced by the percentage of employees who are veterans of the U.S. Armed forces. Buckingham Branch Railroad Company was the 2019 recipient.  Accepting the award on behalf of the railroad is Steve Powell, President.

“Veterans bring a strong work ethic and valuable experience to the railroad industry,” said Chuck Baker, President of ASLRRA during the award presentation. “Our Association’s members recognize that value and make significant efforts to recruit Veterans.”
