Newburgh & South Shore Lauded for Hiring Vets

The Newburgh & South Shore Railroad has been honored by the American Short Line and Regional Railroad Association for its efforts to recruit and support military veterans.

The N&SS won in the small railroad category. Other railroads honored for hiring veterans were the Louisville & Indiana Railroad (mid-sized railroad), Magnus LLC (small supplier category) and GE Transportation (large company category).

The awards were presented at the recent ASLRRA convention held in Grapevine, Texas.

The winners have the highest ratio of veterans in their workforces while GE employs the highest number of vets among association members.

A quarter of the L&I’s 47 employees are military veterans, active duty reservists or National Guard members.
