Veterans Day: Honoring TSG Veterans

Posted by Margaret Harvey on Nov 11, 2022

The federal holiday, Veterans Day, is observed every year on November 11th. The day honors all military Veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces and is a time for us to pay our respects to these selfless individuals.

According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, the theme for Veterans Day 2022 is “Honor.” Veterans are proud of their military service in defending our Nation. Honor reflects the military value and tradition of answering the call to duty. There is distinct honor in serving to protect our way of life and the Constitution of the United States of America.

“As a company, we hold our veterans in high esteem. One of our core values here at The Shippers Group is integrity – a value which is instilled in these service members from the start. They build trust between themselves and their teams, which in return spreads throughout our organization as a whole and enriches our culture. Today, I would like to honor both our veterans here at TSG as well as all our country’s veterans. We thank you for your service, and we are grateful for your sacrifice so that we can enjoy the freedom of democracy.” - Rob Doyle, President, The Shippers Group, USMC, Retired.

In recognition of Veterans Day, The Shippers Group would like to honor our associates for their dedicated service in the US Military. Not only did these service members put on their uniforms to protect the values and liberties this country was built on, but they also brought back the lessons they learned and experiences they gained to strengthen our communities and our company.
