Memorial Day is almost here!
It's the unofficial start of summer but more so, it's a time during National Military Appreciation Month to recognize the contributions made by the women and men who are serving or who have served in our country's armed forces.
This time of year hits home for me since there are twelve veterans in my family (including my Dad, an Army Sharpshooter). Each scar, tattoo and picture tells a story about the time they spent while deployed and brave acts of courage. It’s hard to imagine how our soldiers felt the day they got drafted, but coming back home they were full of pride.
Today, I feel proud to work for a company whose commitment to veterans has long been woven into the fabric of the corporate culture. I have team members who have served, those who are military spouses and those who are parents to today’s soldiers in the U.S. Airforce.
Because there are heroes among us at Sodexo, their stories need to be heard - but for this space, it’s important to hear how their service has helped them in their Sodexo careers!
This Memorial Day weekend, I encourage you to take a moment to reflect upon the extraordinary sacrifices that our military members have made for our country, especially the brave soldiers who have died in the line of duty.
Have a happy and safe holiday!
