Each May, Americans come together to recognize National Military Appreciation Month and Memorial Day in remembrance of the ultimate sacrifice made by our nation’s heroes. The month is a time for military recognition and patriotic pride as communities pay tribute to members of the military who served the country in the name of freedom. The Samsung Veterans Community Employee Resource Group (ERG) was joined by Samsung employees across the country in honoring the members of the U.S. Armed Forces throughout the month.

Together, Samsung employees supported Carry the Load for the fifth consecutive year, a non-profit launched in 2011 to honor the memory of our fallen veterans and first responders. The organization brings millions of people together throughout the country for various in-person and virtual volunteer opportunities, community events and education-based programs to actively express gratitude to our military, veterans, first responders and their families. Samsung employees participated in many of these activities to raise money in support of programs benefitting military service members and their families, including the 20,000-mile National Relay, flagship Dallas Memorial March and more.
