Advancing veteran & military spouse economic opportunity & well-being: A look inside Walmart’s new Military Programs strategy and Find a Future platform

A proponent of veteran hiring for decades, Walmart first announced on Memorial Day 2013, the Veteran’s Welcome Home Commitment guaranteeing a job offer to any eligible, honorably discharged U.S. veteran. We are proud to have surpassed our goal of 250,000 veteran associate hires with more than 44K being promoted to roles of greater responsibility within a Walmart or Sam’s Club.

As we look to our future, Walmart remains committed to fostering a military-friendly community that helps veterans and their spouses improve both economic opportunity and overall well-being.  Walmart will remain committed and will continue to foster and maintain a military ecosystem that helps veterans and their families find meaningful futures through a variety of opportunities including employment, entrepreneurship, and education.

  • How to engage veterans in new, meaningful ways
