Veterans Day is a day of reflection. Reflecting on our country’s past. Reflecting on where we are today. And, most importantly, reflecting on those who fought for our freedoms.
AT&T has a long history of supporting our military and First Responders. We’ve committed to hiring 20,000 veterans by the year 2020. We’ve also joined with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) in a public-private partnership to build and manage America’s only communications platform purpose-built for public safety. As of Nov. 1, a total of 28 states and territories have signed on so far.
We are proud to be contributing $50,000 to support the National Ability Center (NAC) based in Park City, Utah. These funds will benefit their military programs, which range from individual activities to 7-day retreats. The NAC offers a number of individual and group programs for servicemen and women and their families. For more information about the NAC, visit www.discovernac.org.
On Veterans Day and every day, we are thankful for our service members. Join me this Veterans Day in thanking our heroes for their bravery and sacrifices. I recently had the privilege of attending an Honor Flight presentation in Washington, D.C., where Gov. Gary Herbert greeted several WWII and Vietnam veterans from Utah on the National Mall. It was a moving experience, and I can only imagine how much my grandfathers, who were both vets, would have treasured such an experience.
To join us in thanking a veteran or military family, share a photo, video or a simple note of gratitude on social media using #ThankOurHeroes.
We are proud to join our voices together with a message to veterans: thank you for your service!
