Veterans Day with Coca-Cola and the USO

November is a special time of year, as Americans pay tribute to U.S. military veterans. Today is Veterans Day and is one of the biggest days that we honor those who served or continue to serve in the military.

I grew up in the military and in fact, my father retired from the Army. We moved around while growing up and I just know that those experiences really shaped who I am today. I am proud of my father for serving in the military and every year on Veterans Day, I make certain to call him to thank him for his service.

Coca-Cola is a longstanding and dedicated supporter of United States military service members and veterans. This year marks two 75-year anniversaries: the founding of the United Service Organizations (USO), and the beginning of Coca-Cola’s enduring partnership with our country’s military.

Every year, The Coca-Cola Company celebrates Veterans Day by giving back to service members and honoring our country’s veterans, including the thousands of Coca-Cola employees who have served our country. I was thrilled to be invited to join in on Coca-Cola's Veterans Day volunteering event! Every November, Coca-Cola associates gather at the company headquarters to assemble thousands of care packages for military members overseas. We created toiletry packs for service members assembly line style.

The Coca-Cola system employs thousands of veterans and hires hundreds more in North America every year.

I especially love that one of my favorite companies does such good things for veterans. They employ veterans and so much more. It was really great to see this in person!
