There are no heroes in our country more remarkable than our military members, veterans, and their families. In honor of Memorial Day, we’re sharing ways that TEGNA sends the message that there is no more incredible honor than helping to remember a life lived.
According to an Economist/YouGov Poll, the general sentiment of Americans is that veterans deserve more than just Veteran’s Day to receive our support. As a news media company, TEGNA often lends its megaphone to honor our veterans. Brands get in on the action, too, sponsoring and hosting events, raising and donating money, and shining a spotlight on those who have served. Here are a few examples of how Team TEGNA honors and amplifies our veterans year-round.
