Local Bank Manager Recognized for Support of National Guard

April 8, 2013

image When Kevin DeJong needs to report for duty with the National Guard, he knows his employer will support him. That’s why he nominated Aaron Hansen, Vice President and Market Manager for Home Federal Bank in Yankton for recognition through the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve program.

On April 3rd, Hansen received the Patriotic Employer Award which recognizes supervisors and bosses through a nomination process completed by a Guardsman or Reservist employee. DeJong not only nominated Hansen, but also personally presented the award.

“I am completely humbled by this award,” Hansen said. “The real recognition needs to go the men and women like Kevin who take time away from their families and risk their lives in order to protect our country. The commitment that we give to our military team members is simply the right thing to do when you consider the dedication and sacrifice that they exhibit on a continual basis.”

In addition to working as a Senior Ag Banker for Home Federal Bank, DeJong is a Major in the National Guard and serves as the Executive Officer with the HHC 153rd Engineer Battalion based out of Huron.

Home Federal Bank has a long history of supporting members of the military, and has several other employees currently involved with the National Guard or Reserves. Located at 2408 Broadway, Home Federal Bank in Yankton is a full-service bank offering personal, business, ag, home loans, trust and investment financial services.
