Video: NYSE Welcomes Marine Pack Janes ’09 Back from Afghanistan (Bloomberg) Archives


It was a show-stopping moment on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange Tuesday morning, when traders welcomed back one of their own, Marine Corps officer Pack Janes ’09, back from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. The floor erupted in applause as Janes, son of trustee William Janes ’76, was presented with a medal from NYSE CEO Duncan Niederauer. Janes’ family says the attention was unexpected and that Pack had come to the floor of the NYSE to thank traders for their support of his platoon. The Bloomberg TV program In Business, for which Pack’s sister, Maxine Janes ’10, is a producer, came to a halt amid the excitement:
