Corridor Communications, Inc. Honored by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for Service to Veterans and the Community

Marketing Communications Firm Recognized for Its Work to Bring the Dignity Memorial® Vietnam Wall to Rose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuaries

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2010) -  Los Angeles County Board of Supervisor Don Knabe conferred a scroll of recognition on Tuesday to Bonnie Quintanilla and Phyllis Grabot, principals of marketing communications firm Corridor Communications, Inc. The scroll honors their contributions to Veterans and the community and marks the imminent arrival of the Dignity Memorial® Vietnam Wall March 21, 2010, and celebration of California's first Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day.

The pair accepted the honor on behalf of all Veterans and especially those who served in Vietnam. "It's a privilege to work on a project like the traveling Wall that unites community members, businesses, organizations and churches in the common effort to provide a place to remember those who served so valiantly," said Ms. Quintanilla, CEO of Corridor Communications. "To see the memorial, to touch it and experience its magnitude offers unforgettable moments of reflection and healing to thousands of visitors."

The traveling Wall will be hosted by Rose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuaries beginning March 21st and continuing through March 30th, to coincide with and celebrate California's first Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day. As Event Co-Chairs, Corridor Communications secured the infrastructure required to support the 10-day visit. The firm organized special programs offered throughout the week including the 400-person motorcycle escort, a MIA/POW ceremony, a Huey landing, and more; recruited hundreds of volunteers; developed educational programs that will serve more than 500 local youth; secured sponsorships from local businesses, and spearheaded the communications effort to ensure as many people attend as possible.

The Wall is free and open to the public 24-hours a day. During the week, volunteers will read aloud each of the 58,261 names inscribed on The Wall. For information, visit or call 805.341.7269.
