“I learned what it really means to have a second family when I was called to duty… While deployed my Ford team sent me care packages, not only for me, but also with stuffed animals and books for the kids I met while working with families out in the southern towns in Iraq.”

Ford's Proud History of Inclusion

Ford Motor Company has a proud history of supporting the military, dating as far back as 1919, when Henry Ford began to hire disabled veterans returning from World War I. This philosophy of inclusion made the company one of the first to hire people with disabilities, adapting the work environment to their specific needs. Henry Ford also honored these veterans by organizing a caravan of 50 Model Ts to take them to a convention in San Francisco.

During World War II, Ford Motor Company shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all of its resources to Allied war efforts. After the war, Henry Ford’s grandson, Henry Ford II, made a practice of integrating returning veterans into the workplace, which is still a vital priority at Ford.

Today, Ford Motor Company continues to support our military, taking special care of those troops whom we employ. Here, veterans have the opportunity to bring their unique skills to such varied automotive industry sectors as information technology, product development, marketing and more.

It’s our privilege to invite veterans to develop their career aspirations to Ford, where we foster an inclusive culture - free of barriers - and all employees are included, respected and appreciated.
