On this Veterans Day, we remember all of those who have served ever so selflessly, and put themselves in harm’s way to continue a way of life we know and love. In particular, General Motors has made a conscious effort to continue recognizing and support veterans through various programs and initiatives.
Today, GM Vice President of Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain, Mark Reuss, accepted a recognition award from the United States Department of Defense, highlighting the automaker’s support for veterans, the National Guard and Reserve.
“General Motors is setting a high standard for all automobile manufacturers to follow by providing above and beyond support of veterans, many of whom currently serve in the Guard and Reserve,” said Tom Bullock, chief of employer outreach, DoD Office of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).
Hundreds of employees and representatives from the U.S. Tank Automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM), Selfridge Air National Guard Base and UAW Local 160 Veterans Council gathered at the Vehicle Engineering Center on GM’s Technical Center to honor the thousands of GM employees who have served.
“Our veterans embody the values we believe in, and I thank the U.S. Department of Defense for the opportunity to formalize this commitment and express our sincere gratitude,” said Reuss.
