2016 Veterans Day Celebratoin

As an organization and a family, we were built around service and dedication. And Veterans Day is our chance to celebrate those who stand up for those ideals – and everything they’ve done in support of them and our country.

Every year, the Walmart family comes together in thousands of our locations across the country to thank those who’ve served. The annual celebration at our own home office is an expansive event that includes speakers, spotlighted associates and honored guests.
