ALISO VIEJO, Calif., July 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- UST Global, a leading digital technology services company serving Global 1000 enterprises, proudly supported the National Military Family Association by sponsoring an Operation Purple Family Retreat that was held in Virginia, US.
Operation Purple Family Retreats bring families from all uniformed services to beautiful outdoor locations to spend quality time reconnecting after a deployment. Families take part in specially adapted communication activities developed by FOCUS (Families Over Coming Under Stress ™), and build memories through fun, family-oriented activities in a safe, supportive and stimulating environment!
The mission of UST Global is 'transforming lives'. We are humbled and honoured to be working with the National Military Family Association to support the men and women of the United States Armed Services and their families.
Creating opportunities for veterans to reconnect with their loved ones through Operation Purple Family Retreats is just one example of how we do this. Additionally, through our Step IT Up America Veterans program, UST Global is creating opportunities for veterans and their family members to move into high paying careers in technology fields by providing them with paid intensive training, and then giving them the opportunity to work with our Fortune 500 clients, potentially transforming their lives forever.
"We believe that these heroes deserve our acknowledgment, appreciation and our support during and after their deployment. Members of the US Armed Services are trained to be the best in the world at communication, problem solving, leadership, strategy, issue management and effectively dealing with ambiguity. These are the same skills that all leading organizations require. Helping these veterans to re-connect with their family members in a safe setting is an important first step to reintroducing them back into civilian life and UST Global is thrilled to be able to contribute," said Sajan Pillai, Chief Executive Officer, UST Global.
