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’re also using our talents to construct a public safety broadband network called FirstNet to connect our First Responders in new ways. Nearly half the states have signed on to FirstNet, the emergency broadband network being run by AT&T in a private-public partnership
Here in Colorado, we are contributing $20,000 to support the National Sports Center for the Disabled. The funds will help expand their military veteran programs in 2018, which includes a one-of-a-kind Paralympic experience that introduces veterans to curling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, Nordic biathlon and sled hockey. For more information about the NSCD, www.nscd.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.
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!
President — AT&T Colorado
