Hear from the Candidates and Walmart Moms on the important issues.
At Walmart we are thankful for the service and sacrifice of our nation's veterans, military men and women and their families. We strive to support their heroism in a variety of ways and have worked to understand and address some of the specific and special unmet needs they face. Right now we know one of their biggest needs is employment, and the tools necessary to prepare for a career outside of the military. On August 31, 2011 at the American Legion's National Convention, Walmart U.S. President Bill Simon announced that we would be increasing our commitment to to support veteran employment and entrepreneurial opportunities to $20 million over five years.
