What a great Veterans Day celebration we had yesterday at L.E.K. to honor our vets and active duty military staff. So great to see how many of our staff have served their country. We even had Associate Consultant, Anton (U.S. Army National Guard), who is currently deployed join us to talk about his experience, and how skills learned at L.E.K. even contributed to performing his military duties.
When asked what we, as civilians, can do to support those who are deployed and veterans, Matt (former U.S. Army Engineering Officer) replied: “There can be moments of alone time, so reach out to just check on them, or send care packages.” Every gesture can be meaningful. Looking for an organization that you can donate to? Try Operation Gratitude, which provides care packages to active and retired service members.
To those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and those served, thank you for your bravery and selflessness, we will never forget you.
