MADISON, Wis. (8/9/10)--Lt. Col. Thomas Heyden’s gift to company leaders became a tribute to past and present CUNA Mutual Group employees serving in the military during a flag-raising ceremony this week on CUNA Mutual's Credit Union Center Campus, Madison, Wis.

Heyden, a CUNA Mutual employee and Army Reservist serving in Iraq as a senior combat advisor to the Iraqi Army, sent a U.S. flag that had flown at Camp Adder in Iraq on June 12, during Operation Iraqi Freedom. In recognition of service by Heyden and others, the flag was raised at the company’s Madison headquarters. Heyden is a senior sales executive for CUNA Mutual who works out of Winston-Salem, N.C. He is serving in Tallil, Iraq, and will complete his 400-day deployment in December. Members of the University of Wisconsin-Madison ROTC Badger Battalion raised the flag, which was presented by Bob Trunzo, executive vice president and chief operating officer, CUNA Mutual. "It’s an honor and privilege to display this flag on the CUNA Mutual campus,” Trunzo told a small gathering at the ceremony. “We owe a debt of gratitude to Lt. Col. Heyden and many others at CUNA Mutual, past and present, who have made tremendous sacrifices in order to preserve our many freedoms.” CUNA Mutual has 111 current employees who are reservists or retired military. At home, Heyden is an active runner who competes in triathlons, adventure races and marathons. He has put that athletic competitiveness to good use in his support of credit unions. He is a founding member of “Team Little Guy,” a group of credit union runners and cyclists who raise money for charitable causes in North and South Carolina for the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation.
