A Legacy of Service

Every November, we pay homage to those who have served our country. Though we honor their bravery and selflessness throughout the year, we especially do so on Veterans Day.


Electric cooperatives hold our current and former service members in particularly high regard, sharing with them a legacy of service and commitment to fulfilling a mission. Nothing can match a veteran’s personal sacrifice—lengthy stints spent away from loved ones and the potential physical and mental wounds inflicted by combat. We know the challenges we face in service to our membership at Hamilton County Electric Cooperative pale in comparison to those endured by members of our armed forces, yet our goals are rooted in a similar sense of duty.


A commitment to the greater good serves as a bedrock tenet of the cooperative business model, espoused in Cooperative Principle No. 7, Concern for Community. We satisfy our main objective of providing reliable power safely at a fair price while also taking part in initiatives that benefit our community.


This month, as we reflect on the debt of gratitude we owe to our nation’s veterans, take a moment to consider how a legacy of service informs so much of what we do as a cooperative. Though we work to support and strengthen our community in less obvious ways, our motivation is the same: to band together in pursuit of a common goal and bolster the place we call home.
