Union Pacific Donates $60,000 To Wounded Warrior Project®









OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Union Pacific today announced a $60,000 donation to Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), a national organization serving military service members who incurred service-connected injuries or illnesses on or after Sept. 11, 2001, and their families.

"We are extremely honored to contribute to Wounded Warrior Project, whose vision is to foster our nation's most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members," said Jack Koraleski, Union Pacific president and CEO. "Our company has a strong bond with the military, and the fact that military veterans represent approximately 20 percent of our employees reflects the special efforts we make to recruit them. We are proud of this connection."

"It is through donations from companies such as Union Pacific that we are able to provide programs and services for injured service members," said Steve Nardizzi, executive director, Wounded Warrior Project.  "We are grateful to Union Pacific for its support."

More than 50,000 service men and women have been injured in the recent military conflicts. In addition to the physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 320,000 are believed to have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment.

Union Pacific has a long and deep connection to the U.S. military, dating back to the company's beginning when it hired Civil War veterans to help construct America's first transcontinental railroad. During World War I, Union Pacific granted thousands of railroad employees indefinite leaves of absence with pay to serve the country. In addition, Union Pacific prioritized its flow of resources and goods to support various war efforts. During World War II, Union Pacific donated a renovated passenger terminal so soldiers arriving from across the country could take comfort in homemade meals from local citizens at the historic North Platte, Neb., canteen.

Today, Union Pacific supports the military by shipping thousands of rail cars of military equipment to support our armed forces protecting the nation.
