2018 Global Responsibility Report

Supporting veterans and military families

Overview

Founder Sam Walton was fresh out of the army, where he served as a captain in WWII, when he opened his first store. Walmart has always welcomed U.S. veterans into our workforce; it’s part of our history. We know the value veterans bring to our business and to our communities.

Walmart has committed to hire 250,000 veterans by 2020.
