Sarah M.Warehouse Manager Maryland
“My time in the Air Force afforded me the opportunity to work alongside fellow service members who were from all walks of life, backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, and also different ranks in the chain of command. Because of these experiences, I feel comfortable jumping into almost any workplace settings regardless of the background or title of the person."
Brian O.Director of Sales and Operation Illinois
“The leadership, mentoring, and teamwork skills I acquired in the US Army helped prepare me to successfully lead a variety of different teams at Southern Glazer's. The Army instilled a 'lead by example' mindset that I try to model for my teammates and direct reports alike."
David R.Vice President of Operations Arkansas
“I’m blessed to have had a successful career, which I attribute in part to the discipline and structure I received through my enlistment in the US Military Police Corps. I learned about dedication, collaboration and honesty from some the finest Americans I had the honor to serve alongside in the Army. The military teaches that there are no individuals, only the Team, and that has stuck with me my entire career.”

Purple Heart Wines
Purple Heart Wines is an inspired collaboration between C. Mondavi & Family and the Purple Heart Foundation, which is an organization dedicated to serving the unmet needs of military men, women and families. For over 60 years the Purple Heart Foundation has been supporting and honoring the sacrifice military veterans have made for our country. Last year alone, the foundation helped over 19,000 veterans secure over $210 million in VA benefits with their professionally trained VA Service Officers. On Veterans Day 2018, C. Mondavi & Family gifted over 500 SGWS Veterans with their very own bottle of Purple Heart Wine. We are happy to stand with C. Mondavi & Family and the Purple Heart Foundation to honor the sacrifice of our country’s veterans!
This year marks the 6th anniversary of the partnership between RumChata and Lone Survivor Foundation (LSF). To celebrate, each Freedom Bottle featured a label that included the Lone Survivor Foundation logo. The Freedom Bottle Program has raised more than $750,000 over the past five years for Lone Survivor Foundation's mission to restore, empower, and renew hope for wounded veterans and their families through health, wellness, and therapeutic support. During that time, over 800 veterans and military family members have attended LSF's therapeutic retreat programs, thanks in large part to RumChata's generous support.

In addition to providing veterans with career opportunities, we at Southern Glazer’s are honored to partner with national organizations that are committed to helping veterans rebuild their lives. Together, our efforts will continue paying tribute to veterans and their families within the communities where Southern Glazer's and our partners operate.
