WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Training Associates Corporation, a leading provider of learning and development talent and solutions, was presented with the Captain Thomas J. Hudner Award from Fisher House Boston. TTA is only the fourth recipient of this prestigious award.
Fisher House Foundation builds comfort homes where military and veteran families are able to stay free of charge, while their loved ones can recover in the hospital.
“TTA has been working with Fisher House Boston for over three years, and has contributed to the cause by sponsoring veteran families, donating, and contributing gift cards to alleviate some of the stress for military families becoming acquainted with new locations while they stay at Fisher House,” said Jennifer DeLuca, Executive Director of Fisher House Boston.
The award honors Captain Thomas J. Hudner, a Medal of Honor recipient for his actions in trying to save the life of his wingman, Ensign Jesse L. Brown, during the Battle of Chosin Reservoir in the Korean War. This award is given to an organization for its ongoing commitment and dedicated service to others, and TTA is so honored to be the 2018 recipient of this honor.
