Microsoft Corp. today joined the America Supports You team as part of its ongoing commitment to recognizing the dedication of members of the U.S. armed forces and their families. Microsoft will work with America Supports You through engagement with many America Supports You programs.
“As the demands of service continue to challenge and strain America’s armed forces, domestic efforts to support soldiers and their families grow increasingly important,” said Curt Kolcun, vice president of the Federal Division at Microsoft. “Joining American Supports You is a key part of Microsoft’s commitment to our troops and provides our company with an effective way to plug into sustaining efforts that touch hundreds of thousands of families.”
“We know there are countless Americans across the country asking what they can do to show their support for our troops and their families,” said Allison Barber, U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs and architect of the America Supports You initiative. “By spreading the word about America Supports You, corporations like Microsoft help educate Americans and communities on tangible ways to show support for members of the U.S. armed forces.”
