Meet Marine Veteran, Lt. Bryson

Before joining the Hershey Company, Lt. Bryson served eight years on active duty with the U.S. Marine Corp. He was deployed in countries around the world, including supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom, before being honorably discharged in 2011.

"My Military service will always be at the core of who I am as a person. It is my life's privilege to serve my country and to serve and protect those who cannot protect themselves."

Supporting Fellow Veterans

During his years of service, Lt. Bryson made many great friendships and developed a camaraderie among fellow veterans that will last a lifetime. He's endured struggles and saw friends deal with personal traumas as well.

"Veterans Day is a great time to celebrate the veteran community and the sacrifices we all made to serve our country. It is also a time to support one another in our individual journeys that we have taken following our military careers."
