Honoring Our Heroes: Memorial Day and Beyond

Memorial Day is a significant day of remembrance, dedicated to honoring the brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives in service. It’s a time for reflection, gratitude, and remembrance of those who fought and died to protect our freedoms. As we pay tribute to these fallen heroes, we also extend gratitude to the veterans and active-duty service members who continue to serve our country with dedication and courage.

At Suburban Propane, we are deeply committed to honoring the military community not only on Memorial Day but throughout the entire year. Our support for veterans and active service members is woven into the fabric of our organization in several impactful ways.


From Military Life to Suburban Life

Suburban Propane takes great pride in our robust efforts to hire veterans, through our “Heroes Hired Here” initiative. We recognize the exceptional skills and attributes that veterans bring to our workforce, including leadership, teamwork, and a strong service orientation. These qualities not only enhance our business operations but foster a culture of excellence and integrity. Our commitment to hiring and supporting veterans is unwavering, as we believe in providing meaningful career opportunities that allow them to continue making a positive impact.
