You may have read about one of our veterans, Sumner, and his recent trip to California for Avaya training. Sumner has worked at TelWare since 2011 as a technician. You will see him installing phone systems and troubleshooting support tickets. Sumner is currently serving in the Army National Guard and is a decorated war veteran. For his service, Sumner has been awarded the Army Achievement Medal five times — in addition to receiving the Army Commendation Medal. We're proud to have Sumner as part of Team TelWare. We are consistently receiving positive feedback from the customers he serves.

Sumner would like to take this opportunity to bring attention to Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors (JAH4WW), a local organization that provides financial assistance and support to injured veterans by building and remodeling homes to be handicap accessible.

Consider making a donation to JAH4WW today.

From everyone at TelWare, thank you.


There are over 775,000 veterans in North Carolina. All this week and on November 11th, Veterans Day, we honor those who have served our country. It is their sacrifice for the common good that we would like to honor. Throughout this week, Team TelWare will post tribute blogs for our veterans. Help us honor them by thanking a veteran this week.
