Vertis and Stars and Stripes Join Forces to Honor Military Heroes

More than 1.6 million copies of “Heroes” have been circulated in 2011.

Inspired by “Heroes,” Vertis published its own tribute to nearly 50 of the company’s active duty and reserve employees and family members. Vertis employees from 22 company locations submitted photos of and tributes to loved ones and colleagues serving in the military.

“Vertis feels a very deep commitment to our nation’s Armed Forces, because our own employees and their family members are making sacrifices on the front lines to defend our freedom,” said Gerald Sokol Jr., president and CEO, Interim, for Vertis Communications. “Our work with Stars and Stripes motivated us to honor our own heroes with a publication that will enable our employees to see what an influence the military has on all of us personally.”
