The announcement of exceeding the 2012 veterans hiring goal caps several days of honoring military heroes at Coca-Cola. Today, the Company hosted its 13 th annual Veterans Day ceremony, which included special remarks from the Secretary of Labor, who joined Steve Cahillane in recognizing the Company’s rich heritage with veterans and the military. The event also featured a keynote address from Michele Jones, Director of External Veterans/Military Affairs and Community Outreach for the President's Veterans Employment Initiative. To close the event, attendees were treated to a rousing performance by national recording artist, Mark Wills.On Wednesday, hundreds of Coca-Cola associates helped support active-duty military members with a USO Care Package “stuffing party.” Atlanta-area employees pitched in to fill more than 10,000 packages with items such as batteries, Odwalla bars, phone cards, toothpaste and personal letters of thanks from Coca-Cola associates. These parcels will be distributed to service men and women to offer them a touch of home and a bit of comfort and convenience as they serve their country.
