A Heartfelt Tribute To Veterans
We are constantly reminded of the sacrifices made by service men and women and their families. USWM offers this special tribute to all of our Veterans! We would like to honor all the service men and women that risk their lives day in and day out for the freedom of this great country we call home. If you’ve been staying up-to-date on our news alerts, you have probably noticed we often have a special tribute included. This is in dedication, remembrance, and support of all the troops fighting the war against terror.
Show-Me Heroes Program
US Wellness Meats is a member company of Missouri’s Show-Me Heroes, an effort to hire Missouri’s Veterans. The Show-Me Heroes program was started in 2010 and has become a cooperative effort between Missouri businesses, Army National Guard and the Missouri Division of Workforce Development.

Care Packages For Soldiers
A few years ago, we surprised soldiers with some of our favorite snacks! 16 soldiers in Zabul, Afghanistan enjoyed our beef jerky, pemmican, albacore tuna, pouched salmon and an assortment of other healthy snacks. It is our honor to do what we can to ensure our soldiers are fueled with the best soldier snacks while on duty. As pictured below, soldiers are hooking up a sling load to a CH-47 Chinook Helicopter in Afghanistan.
US Wellness Meats has been a regular sponsor of programs designed to send care packages to our troops overseas.
From all the farm families of US Wellness Meats we extend a big salute today and every day to all that have so selflessly served this country.
