ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Governor Larry Hogan honored local veterans on Friday and presented a citation to Valor Roofing in recognition of their “Raise a Roof for a Veteran” program.
Valor Roofing, which is based in Lanham, selects four combat wounded or service-disabled veterans each year in need of a new roof. They've replaced the roofs of 10 veterans in need since 2017.
The governor was joined by Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary George Owings, Valor Roofing President and Vietnam veteran Al Kincaid, and his son Adam Kincaid, as they celebrated the donation of a new roof to Vietnam veteran George Welch.
“Far too often, our veterans did not receive the thanks, respect, appreciation, or recognition that they wholeheartedly deserved,” said Governor Hogan. “Thanks to the incredible work of veteran-owned companies like Valor Roofing, our heroes are getting the help and support they need.”
