Coca-Cola, The USO And The 82nd Airborne Division “All–American” Chorus Salute Veterans Day

They have performed across the country and have also served the United States in military action. They are the 82 nd Airborne Division “All-American” Chorus and they will be at Coca-Cola Headquarters this week to honor service members for Veterans Day.

Every year Coca-Cola associates pause to honor the veterans and members of the U.S. military who sacrifice to serve their country and protect our freedoms. This year the Company will host a ceremony to pay tribute to these men and women, including more than 3,000 veterans employed by Coca-Cola. On Thursday, November 14, Retired First Class Sergeant Michael Schlitz will provide a keynote address. Sergeant Schlitz will share his inspiring story of survival and courage following a terrible accident during a military campaign in Iraq.

“This event provides the opportunity to recognize co-workers who have served or are serving in the military,” said Steve Cahillane, President, Coca-Cola Americas. “On this special day, we also remember the families of those serving, for their sacrifices are often deep and long as they wait patiently for the safe return of their loved ones.”

As part of the week-long Veterans Day observance, the Company will also host its annual USO Care package stuffing party on November 13. Hundreds of Coca-Cola associates will “stuff” more than 10,000 care packages for the USO. The packages include items such as batteries, Odwalla bars, phone cards and personal letters of thanks from Coca-Cola associates. These packages will be distributed to boost the morale of troops worldwide.

“The Coca-Cola Company has a proud history of standing behind America’s men and women in uniform, which dates back more than 70 years,” continued Cahillane. “We continue that tradition today by partnering with organizations like the USO, bringing veterans into the Coca-Cola workforce and refreshing the members of the extended U.S. military family millions of times around the world each day.”
