Recognizing Our Vietnam Veterans

Since the launch of UberMILITARY in 2014, Uber’s efforts to support our nation’s veterans and their families have only grown. This week, we’re adding to our ties within the military community by partnering with the SMART Congressional Initiative, a program that provides leadership in the Mid-Atlantic Region for advancements in the science and technology communities.

On Thursday, we’ll be offering free rides to the Vietnam veterans honored at SMART’s South Jersey Veterans’ Family Lunch.

The lunch will be held on the Battleship NJ in conjunction with the 2015 parade of tall ships and will bring together the servicemen of Southern New Jersey, their families, and a spectacular view of the ships that will arrive on the Camden Waterfront. In addition, we will be providing complimentary transportation to the two South Jersey Vietnam Veterans award winners.

On Thursday, June 25 we’re giving free rides* to and from the South Jersey Veterans’ Lunch with code SJVETS

Since 1999, SMART has brought together the minds of academia, businesses, government labs, and professional associations to work towards technical, economic, and education/workforce advancement goals. Like SMART, we’re committed to enhancing technical and workforce development and we recognize that veterans are some of the most skilled and talented members of our workforce.
