My husband served proudly in the US Navy. He committed 8 years of his life to protecting and serving his country. This Veteran’s Day I want to share how important it is to remember those who served in our military. To often, Veterans become the forgotten civilian and I can’t share enough how a simple thank you of acknowledgement goes a long way!
I am happy to share that Walmart’s Wall of Honor continues to be a virtual community where we can support and share about the Veterans in our lives. Anyone can post a photo, video or text on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram by using #WallofHonor it will aggregate to walmart.com/wallofhonor. So join the conversation and read the testimonials to Veterans and also some Veterans that share how they proudly served!
Here is what I shared this year:
Walmart continues to stay committed to our Veterans
Since the announcement to hire 100,000 Veterans over a 5 year period, Walmart has proudly “connected more than 67,861 veterans with employment opportunities across the country to date. The initiative guarantees a job offer to any honorably discharged veteran within the first 12 months of separation from service.”
This means so much because I’ve shared how difficult it was to transition for the hubs during the first year of being a civilian. Having Walmart continue to support our Veterans and their Families plays an important role in their transition.
Walmart and the Walmart Foundation have doubled their commitment to our Veterans by pledging and additional $20 million this year. This means their pledge increases through 2019 to support Veteran employment and transition programs.
