Thank You To Our Veterans

Posted by Margaret Harvey on Nov 10, 2023

Observed every year on November 11th, Veterans Day honors all military veterans who served in the United States Armed Forces. While veterans deserve our respect every day, this day serves as an opportunity to outwardly show appreciation to the selfless individuals whose patriotism and willingness to sacrifice for the common good brought and kept our country’s freedom.

May we all take a moment tomorrow to reflect on their courage and sacrifice as we stand united in appreciation for all our veterans.

To commemorate this significant day, The Shippers Group wanted to pay tribute to our esteemed veterans. In appreciation for their service - both to our country and to our company - veteran associates and their spouses were invited to a dinner celebration where they received personalized thank-you packages. Furthermore, we demonstrated our support on a broader scale by contributing to the Wounded Warrior Project, and by planning an upcoming volunteer event.

It is our most sacred responsibility to take care of and serve our veterans, which is why we remain committed at The Shippers Group to meeting the needs of our veterans and developing a meaningful program to help veterans succeed in the civilian workplace.

“To our Courageous Veterans here at The Shippers Group - Thank you for your service, sacrifice, and valor. The impact you have on our organization is significant as your leadership, selflessness, and dedication to service are an engrained part of our company culture. The debt to each of our Veterans here at TSG can never be repaid, but you have earned our undying gratitude and we will never forget your sacrifice. Your presence makes our company stronger and more capable while adding richness to our company’s legacy. Thank you for your service to our country and to The Shippers Group!”
