The Shippers Group Honors Our Military Veterans

Posted by Rob Doyle on Jul 3, 2022

As a company, we hold our veterans in high esteem, and while Memorial Day is not about the living, we still honor all of our veterans realizing the heavy heart of many veterans who lost brothers and sisters in arms during their time serving our country. For this, we are very grateful for their sacrifice, and those who have given their life so that we can enjoy the freedom of democracy.   

As we just concluded Military Appreciation Month, Memorial Day and now head into Independence Day, TSG salutes all our veterans as we thank you for your service and for your hard work and dedication to The Shippers Group.

In specific, The Shippers Group would like to thank our very own Veterans. 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.
