Crye-Leike Recognizes the Military & Their Family Members

Memphis, Tenn. – This year’s Employee Appreciation Luncheons at Crye-Leike, Realtors will have more of a heartfelt meaning when the Pledge of Allegiance is recited. It will be preceded by a roll call of those 59 Crye-Leike employees and sales associates who have members of their family serving in the military at a time when President Bush declared an end to “major combat operations in Iraq.”

“With our company’s size and close proximity to a major U.S. Navy and Marine Corps installation in Millington, Tenn. and a U.S. Army Forces Command installation in Fort Campbell, KY, it is not surprising to find a number of our employees and sales associates having family members serving in the military,” says Joyce Friedman, public relations director who notes that Crye-Leike has 600 employees and 2,367 sales associates company-wide.

“Our employee luncheons couldn’t have been planned at a better time with the recent declaration from President Bush,” said Friedman. “There definitely will be a camaraderie in the air at our appreciation luncheons as we recognize those Crye-Leike family members who support our servicemen and servicewomen.”

Those 59 men and women serving in the U.S. forces and their relationship to employees and sales associates of Crye-Leike, Realtors by regions are as follows:
