Veterans Day is the day set aside to thank and honor all those who served honorably in the military—in times of war or peace. Veterans Day is largely intended to thank living veterans for their service, to acknowledge that their contributions to our national security are appreciated, and to underscore the fact that all those who served have sacrificed and done their duty.  

This year we would like to acknowledge the veterans within our company who have served. Several of our employee owners have served in various branches of the military in various capacities. Thank you for your service!
