The American Legion honored Morris-Baker Funeral Home & Cremation Services as the Employer of Older Veterans (small business category) for the Year 2022, during the August National Convention held in Wisconsin.
Morris-Baker was nominated by the King’s Mountain Post 24, Johnson City, earlier in the year for employing senior Veterans and for its exceptional performance and service to the Veterans of Washington County & Johnson City. The Department (state) of Tennessee, American Legion, selected Morris-Baker as its nominee for the award and forwarded the nomination to the National HQ selection committee.
