Historically known as Armistice Day, a day of remembrance first appeared during World War I when a ceasefire was declared on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. Many years passed before November 11 was dubbed the name we now know, Veterans Day, and it remains a day to pay tribute to all veterans, especially giving thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime. 

As a Veteran, I am proud of my service and understand the sacrifices that so many families have made. At Sealed Air, we believe valuing our Veterans and their talents is an attribute our country should always honor.  Therefore, we launched a Veterans Network early in 2014 to connect those who have either served in the military or who are interested in supporting veterans. We’ve been thrilled with our employees’ engagement.  Along with expanding our Veterans Network, we’re highlighting a few of our veteran employees by showcasing their profiles on our company intranet and at the office. We’re also continuing our support of Hope For The Warriors®. Recently, Sealed Air sponsored a run for Hope For The Warriors® and we were pleased to see many employees and the local community participate in support of our returning veterans.

So today and in the future, I urge you to reaffirm your commitment to support our veterans. And to my fellow veterans and their family members, I salute you. Together, let’s take action.
