Atlantic Diving Supply Honors Veterans Day With Donation to USO
November 11, originally a marker of the end of World War I, is now celebrated annually as Veterans Day. This holiday spurs celebration, remembrance, and appreciation for all of America’s veterans and the sacrifices they’ve made for our country.
This Veterans Day, Atlantic Diving Supply is honoring veterans through a donation to the USO of South Hampton Roads and Central Virginia.
The USO was founded in preparation for World War II on the belief that maintaining high morale among our troops is vital to military success. Their mission is to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home, and country throughout their service to the nation.
Today, the USO has over 200 centers that extend support to countries on every continent. These centers are operated by thousands of driven, dedicated volunteers that support America’s service members through countless acts of caring, comfort, connection, and support, no matter where, how long, or under what conditions they serve.
"Veterans Day is a time to celebrate all who served, and no organization has done more to support our proud and brave military families than the USO of South Hampton Roads and Central Virginia. Without any government support, our region’s USO chapter serves the nation’s largest concentration of military personnel. This is the opportunity for us to say “Thank you” and show our company’s appreciation."
With over one-third of Atlantic Diving Supply employees being veterans or members of military families, we understand how much of an impact continuous support like this can make.
“We know that every dollar we donate goes straight to supporting our brave U.S. service members, and we’re proud and honored to support the USO any chance we get,” said Wallace.
ADS is a proud partner of the USO and will continue to support their efforts through our charity, the Mission: Giveback Foundation.
THANK YOU, VETERANS
To all the veterans who work at Atlantic Diving Supply and the millions across the globe, we extend a heartfelt thank you for preserving our freedoms we cherish and hold so dearly. On Veterans Day and every day, we thank you for your service.
