Supporting Our Veterans by Hiring Our Heroes

Cox Communications is pleased to once again partner with Hiring Our Heroes to provide help and support to veterans, transitioning service members and military spouses as they find meaningful employment opportunities outside of their military careers.

Hiring Our Heroes: Erich Braasch

Erich Braasch’s military service began 20 years ago, when he became an F-16 fighter aircraft mechanic. His past expertise makes Erich a great fit for Cox’s Hiring Our Heroes program. As one of the January 2021 fellows, Erich is a Service Assurance Technician and works remotely from Charleston, SC.

Hiring Our Heroes: Lee Crawford

Lee Crawford served in the U.S. Air Force for 20 years. During his service he was an aircraft mechanic, working on multiple aircraft while stationed at Aviano, Italy, Louisiana, Virginia, South Korea and Florida. Lee became a part of Cox’s Hiring Our Heroes corporate fellowship in January 2021 and is currently a Network Operations Center Technician in Suwanee, GA. 

Hiring Our Heroes: Tony Grandprey

Tony committed to a commissioning program and spent more than seven years on active duty as an infantry officer. Now a January 2021 member of Cox’s Hiring Our Heroes program, Tony resides in Boise, ID and works in field technical project management at Cox Communications

Hiring Our Heroes: Daryl Porter

In his almost 24 years in the military, Daryl was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with three gold stars, the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with three gold stars, and more. Now he’s transitioning to civilian life in San Diego, CA and is part of Cox’s first class of Hiring Our Heroes fellows for 2021.
