Estes employees have a long-standing history of patriotism, from honoring the past service of our men and women in uniform to sending well-wishes to those currently serving. It’s in this spirit that Estes is proud to work with worthwhile support organizations for outreach to active-duty U.S. service members and in remembrance of those who have given their lives to defend our freedoms.
Over the years, Estes has worked to collect and deliver care-package items for U.S. service men and women deployed in combat and disaster-relief zones around the world in time for Christmas.
Estes also supports Wreaths Across America (WAA) to help remember the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who gave their lives to preserve our nation’s freedoms. Each December, WAA coordinates the laying of thousands of fresh evergreen holiday wreaths on gravesites to honor fallen veterans at more than 750 cemeteries nationwide, and Estes has been part of the delivery team since 2011.
These community efforts—as captured in this short video—spring from a genuine gratitude for the sacrifices made by America’s men and women in uniform. Expressing that gratitude through outreach opportunities such as these represents a small though important way we can Encourage the Living, Honor the Fallen.
We also value the experience and skills that military personnel bring to the table as Estes employees, which is why we proudly recruit military veterans to join our nationwide team. Virtually any military field or specialty prepares you for a job in freight transportation. And our core values of mutual respect, commitment, loyalty, integrity and reliability mean that military veterans will feel right at home at Estes.
