Eleven09 is not a number. It’s a date. It’s a date that is important to us and those that we served with. It represents November 9th, 2007 in which the paratroopers of 1st platoon, Chosen Company, 2-503rd 173rd ABCT were ambushed conducting operations in Nuristan Province, Afghanistan. At the end of the day, 6 heroes made the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our country and our way of life. We will never forget their names or the sacrifices they made while fighting for our freedom. We will remember all the sacrifices that have been made by those wearing the uniform as well as those who served at home. We are grateful for them and as a company we will continuously give back to the active duty and veteran community while moving toward positive outcomes and lasting change.
Here at Eleven09, we want to remember the events and life experiences that shaped who we are and where we came from. It all started on 11/09/07 and that is why we chose that name. The stars in our logo represent the 6 heroes and will be an anchor to keep us true to our values. We aim to have a majority of our workforce composed of veterans and their spouses. We know that we would not be where we are without our community and we plan to continue to be a valuable supporter now and in the future.
