The Veteran and Military Community faces a unique set of challenges that take a strong support network to overcome. We are privileged to be just one part of that amazing support network which works to combat the struggles and marginalization that countless veterans endure. ViacomCBS Veterans Network facilitates initiatives, events, and moments that create a shared sense of community and pride.

Although our ViacomCBS Veteran coworkers and military family members may pass, their stories, service, and our shared memories of them should not be forgotten. We invite our community to reflect, if they wish, in love and with a fullness of heart on our late ViacomCBS veteran coworkers and military family members at our Memorial Page.
