DocMagic, Inc., an industry provider of automated loan document production and compliance solutions, said that earlier this year it had teamed with the 315th U.S. Army Tactical Company to distribute a plush version of the company's DocMagic Bunny, called "Sergeant Doc," to children whose families serve in the nation's armed forces. The company said the plush bunny toy is dressed in regulation military clothing as a tribute to the men and women who serve this country, and the families that eagerly wait for their return.
Each year, DocMagic delivers thousands of bunnies to its customers. The DocMagic Bunny is a staple of the company's brand, the company says, and every year the employees at DocMagic participate in a contest to pick the theme for "Doc."
For 2012, the company's employees overwhelmingly chose to show support for our country's troops by outfitting "Doc" in regulation military fatigues proudly displaying the American flag and equipping him with a GPS device.
"Sergeant Doc was specifically created to honor the men and women who serve in the armed forces," said Dominic Iannitti, president at CEO at DocMagic.
"They and their families make enormous sacrifices and we wanted to show our appreciation. We are pleased that the 315th U.S. Army Tactical Company was able to help connect us with the families of those who serve. We are additionally gratified by the enthusiastic response from our customers, who have phoned and written to thank us for honoring our nation's true heroes."
With the help of the 315th, Sergeant Doc is being distributed to schools, youth organizations, churches and parks as well as the children and families of those deployed. The campaign began during the holiday season and is now continuing into the New Year.
