American Outdoor Brands honors veterans
COLUMBIA, Mo. – American Outdoor Brands, Inc., (AOB), an industry leading provider of products and accessories for outdoor enthusiasts, last week honored its employees who served to protect our American freedoms. The company recognizes the positive impact its employees have on the success of its business and employs individuals from various backgrounds, including American veterans. Together, AOB veterans represent the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Navy, and the company formally recognized their contributions, and the contributions that all veterans provided, to preserve the freedoms that we enjoy daily.
To honor these individuals, each AOB Veteran received a custom shirt, hat, and gift card to enjoy a meal with a friend or family member. The group was met by Brian Murphy, AOB President and CEO, and members of the executive leadership team, to convey the company’s gratitude for their service. Murphy, said, “We enjoy tremendous freedoms in the U.S., including the ability to operate and grow companies like American Outdoor Brands, because of the generous gift of service our current military personnel and veterans have given us. On behalf of American Outdoor Brands, thank you. We will be forever indebted to our American veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and their willingness to sacrifice for the benefit of each of us and for our way of life.”
In order to recognize and share appreciation for veterans beyond the company, AOB employees were invited to create hand-written thank you notes which were delivered to the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veteran’s Hospital. In addition, AOB will donate to Honor Flight, an organization that transports veterans to Washington D.C. to visit monuments in their honor.
