March 6, 2019 – On February 6, 2019, Matthew Tuckey, Business Development Director of the Tuckey Companies (including Tuckey Restoration, a DKI member), was honored with The Patriot Award. The award recognizes employers for supporting the National Guard and Reserve members. Mr. James E. Astor, South Central Area Chair for Pennsylvania Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve presented the award. Company president, Kenneth Tuckey, signed a Statement Of Support for The Guard and Reserve, committing The Tuckey Companies to continue assisting Guard and Reserve members.
Joe (last name omitted for security reasons) nominated Matthew Tuckey for the award. As Joe’s supervisor, Tuckey always accommodates Joe’s need for time off to complete Guard duties. This assures Joe he will be able to fulfill his regular service commitments to the Guard and return to his position as a restoration technician without resentment or questioning.
“Matt understands my need to complete my Guard service and works with me to make a schedule to fit both my work and Guard responsibilities,” said Joe.
“We value the work of the dedicated men and women serving in the National Guard and Reserve. We view flexible schedules for service members as an act of patriotism, not a problem,” said Tuckey.
