Every year during the month of May, we come together to give our appreciation to those who have served and are currently serving in the branches of the US military. The privileges we have in our great nation would not be possible without the sacrifices of these individuals and throughout this month we recognize, honor, and appreciate their selfless work.
Specifically, The Shippers Group would like to thank our very own associates who served in the military. The selflessness these individuals displayed to protect our country pours into their daily lives and we are grateful for the impact they have had, and continue to have, on our company’s success.

Throughout this month, we encourage you to join us in thanking the servicemen and servicewomen in your lives. We also encourage you to show your support in a variety of ways, such as:
Acts of service – such as buying a meal for a service member in uniform, lending a helping hand to a neighborhood veteran, or volunteering at a VA hospital or veteran’s shelter.
Donate to a veteran’s charity – supporting these organizations is a great way to empower veterans to live their lives to the fullest and to provide them with needed resources.
Send a military care package – it is always nice to receive an unexpected gift and reminder of home when you’re away from family. Books, decks of cards, hygiene products, snacks, and letters are all great ideas to include in your package.
