Some of Union Pacific's first employees were Civil War veterans, and throughout our more than 155-year history, we've consistently supported the military – whether by moving troops and supplies, or by providing good jobs for veterans and active-duty soldiers. We recognize that members of the U.S. military are dedicated individuals who bring unique experience and skills to Union Pacific. Currently, more than 19 percent of our employees have military experience, with some still active in the National Guard or Reserves. Union Pacific's Support our Troops initiative encourages employees to send messages to our railroad's uniformed soldiers on active duty around the world.
