Legion Logistics Honored with Above and Beyond Award and the Pro Patria Award by U.S. Department of Defense



Florence, KY (October 7, 2014) – Legion Logistics, LLC in Florence, Kentucky is the proud recipient of both the Above and Beyond Award and the Pro Patria Award from the U.S. Department of Defense. 

A service-disabled veteran himself, Legion Logistics CEO Antony Coutsoftides understands the commitment involved when serving in the military. He also understands the value of current service members, military spouses, and veterans in the civilian workplace and actively recruits them as employees. Legion Logistics is proud to count 11 past and present service members and spouses among our 37 full-time employees.

According to the Department of Defense website, the Above and Beyond Award recognizes “employers at the local level who have gone above and beyond the legal requirements of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) by providing their Guard and Reserve employees additional, non-mandated benefits such as differential or full pay to offset lost wages, extended health benefits, and other similar benefits.” 

Only three Pro Patria Awards are awarded per state each year. It is the highest award given at a state level by ESGR and is awarded to those companies that “have demonstrated the greatest support to Guard and Reserve employees through their leadership and practices, including adopting personnel policies that make it easier for employees to participate in the National Guard and Reserves.”

Legion Logistics, LLC is a service-disabled veteran-owned third-party logistics provider (3PL) based in Florence, Kentucky. What all those hyphens don’t tell you is that the Legion is committed to exceptional customer service, fair dealings with trucking companies and an outstanding, veteran-friendly work environment. Founded in 2009, the Legion specializes in full truckload, less-than-truckload, government freight, hazardous materials and produce shipping.
