“Every hero deserves to be recognized and thanked for their courage, selflessness and the help they are providing to this country during this time,” Amtrak Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating and Commercial Officer Stephen Gardner said.
“We are proud to participate with our partners and ‘sound our horns’ by honoring and thanking all of the heroes across the nation who continue their essential and heroic service.”
