Today, JAXPORT recognized its 45 veteran employees with a special Veterans Day luncheon served by the port’s executive team. It is a JAXPORT tradition for the port’s senior leadership to serve lunch to this group in gratitude for their military service.

More than a quarter of JAXPORT’s 154 employees are veterans and they represent all five branches of the military. JAXPORT’s veterans have a combined 550 years of military service.

“This is our small way of saying ‘thank you’ to the port’s veterans for their sacrifice,” said JAXPORT CEO Eric Green. “These individuals now contribute to JAXPORT’s success daily, bringing the dedication, humility, integrity and dependability they developed in the military to our port community and to our customers. We are grateful for their past service to the nation and their current service to our community.”
