Republic Services has a longstanding commitment to our military and to the men and women who serve our country.
In honor of Veterans Day, we recognized our many employees who are veterans and active service members at a celebration at our headquarters – attended by nearly 600 employees. This gave us the opportunity to launch an important employee business resource group named V.A.L.O.R. (Veterans, Advocacy, Learning, Outreach and Recruiting) that will create a network of veterans and military supporters across our company who are passionate about helping veterans.
Alliance Data recognizes and celebrates the bravery and sacrifice of veterans every day. We are proud to employ and work with many veterans across our associate groups. Every year on Veterans Day, Alliance Data hosts a flag raising ceremony at company headquarters in Columbus, Ohio to honor all the men and women serving in our military who protect our freedoms and thank them for their service.

And inadvertently took his first step toward a future in tech. ￼

When I decided to pursue a career in the military, I wasn’t sure whether it would be for 5 years or 20 years. I was passionate about serving our country and drawn to the Marine Corps’ camaraderie and values of “Honor, Courage, and Commitment”. I’ll be forever grateful for the experiences the Marine Corps provided me and, most importantly, the Marines with whom I served.
Ultimately, I decided to leave the military for business school and a new mission. I believe that the private sector’s resources can and should be used to help solve our world’s most pressing challenges.

Wayne Hambrick worked a couple of jobs after a back injury ended his career in the Marines. But he hadn’t found what he was looking for – until he got a position working outside in sometimes difficult conditions with long hours.
Hambrick joined the Marines when he was 21. It happened to be a natural fit, with plenty of his relatives having served in the military, including a grandfather who was a POW in Korea.

In 2016, Kelly Brock, a reservation coordinator for Hallmark’s attractions, and member of Hallmark’s Military Interest Group (MIG), reached out to her father-in-law’s USS Hornet organization with an idea.
The Hornet’s members — veterans who served in the Pacific War, World War II, and the Vietnam War were looking for a location to host their annual reunion the next year. Brock suggested they visit Kansas City and tour the Hallmark Visitors Center, where the staff would create a special military display in their honor.
