THANK YOU TO OUR MILITARY VETERANS
November 11, 2023
Today is a significant day, a day when our nation unites to honor and pay tribute to those who have served selflessly in our armed forces. Veteran’s Day is not just a date on the calendar; it’s an opportunity for us to pause, reflect, and express our heartfelt gratitude to the veterans who have made incredible sacrifices for our freedom and security.
For me, this day holds special meaning. My father was a Colonel Pilot in the Air Force, serving in Vietnam, and both my grandfathers served in World War II. Their dedication to our country and their willingness to stand up for our freedoms have had a profound impact on my life.
At Goettl, we have the privilege of having numerous veterans as an integral part of our family. They are not just our colleagues; they are our heroes. Their unwavering dedication, discipline, and sense of duty have left an indelible mark on our organization, making us stronger, more resilient, and better prepared to face any challenge.
This Veteran’s Day, it’s essential that we recognize the immense value our veteran employees bring to Goettl which is why we are launching our first edition of Goettl’s Heroes: Honoring Our Veterans. This booklet is a tribute to our veteran colleagues, showcasing their remarkable journeys, accomplishments, and the valuable contributions they make to Goettl every day.
To further commemorate this special day and to express our gratitude to our veteran employees, we are pleased to announce a partnership with K9s for Warriors, an organization dedicated to providing service dogs to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other service-related challenges. This partnership reflects our deep respect for our veterans and our belief in the transformative power of service dogs in their lives.
And to further show our support, we are kicking off a 5% discount for customers who are veterans. It’s a small token of appreciation for their service and a reflection of our commitment to giving back to those who have given so much.
I encourage each and every one of you to take a moment today to thank a veteran among us. Thank you for joining me in honoring our veterans today and every day.
