Honoring Our Brave Military Veterans from the McAfee Community | McAfee Blogs



Paying tribute

November 11 marks Veterans and Remembrance Day. It is a time for the world to come together and honor the brave men and women who have risked their lives to protect our nations. 

We pay tributeto those who have served in the military while in the Commonwealth countries. We also honor military members through Remembrance Day, a day to remember those who have passed on in the line of duty.  

At McAfee, we take pride in the large and vibrant group of Veterans that makes up our community.   

We continue to make strides in actively recruiting Veterans, supporting their acclimation to our corporate setting and nurturing career growth by empowering the transferable skills cultivated during active duty. 

Thoughts from our veteran community

This Veteran’s Day, we spotlight members from our McAfee Veterans Community and learn about what this day means to them:

This day reminds me of the people I worked with and the difference we made. It’s the people who volunteer to serve in the military, sacrificing years of their lives, and in some cases, their very lives, who guard and protect the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. All military personnel take an oath that, in part, says “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same”. This oath doesn’t expire when a service member leaves military service.

Andrew, Senior Service Reliability Engineer, Cloud

This day is the day we honor the silver haired guy in a Prius with a Silver Star license plate or the quiet thirty something mom in the store with her noisy kids wearing the Marine-Corps T-shirt with two tours in Afghanistan under her belt.. Not everyone was a Delta operative or a Navy SEAL. They all however – to a man and woman – had their place in the system that kept us safe. Find them; thank them for their service and your freedom.” 

–  Kevin, Customer Success Manager, CSG

I will never stop being Ex Armed Forces. I think fondly of my time in the Royal Navy. I would do it all again in a heartbeat. I still get a lump in my throat when I hear “Heart of Oak” or the “The Last Post” being played. The friends I made and the people I met during my service from all countries and all parts of the Armed Forces, friend or foe, all have a similar vein running through them. Remembrance Day reminds me that while some of us are not here anymore, that vein is still with us and them.

– Paul, Associate Technical Support Engineer, Customer Success Group

My family has a history of service and I grew up knowing I would join the Military. I joined the Royal Navy in 1982 at age 18. I’m proud to have served and I will continue to observe the 1 minute silence and attend the remembrance service and take the time to remember the sacrifice. Lest we not forget. For those brave who gave their lives so we could live ours.” 

– Tudor,  Sr. Project Manager – New Product Information, Global Product Operations
