Francisco Pena with Elvia Maciel“It is an honor to be able to serve even a small part in the lives of our military veterans,” says Elvia Maciel, PHL Administration & Human Resources Manager.

Her modesty notwithstanding, Maciel was named PHL’s Patriotic Employer by the U.S. Department of Defense, “for contributing to national security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America’s National Guard and Reserve Force.”

She explains that she is happy to help PHL’s military reservists by keeping them in touch with developments at work while they are on duty.

Maciel is proud to have been named a Patriotic Employer, and she is particularly grateful to Francisco Pena, locomotive engineer, who nominated her. Pena is among those she has helped.

“This is one of the things that make it great to be a part of the PHL team,” Maciel says. “We support one another.”
