Boeing Increases Investment in Veterans Welfare

Fighting for America’s Warfighters

Boeing has invested a cool $10-million in the George W. Bush Presidential Center. The monies will support the museum and veterans and military families programs officiated by the institution, which is located on the campus of Southern Methodist University (SMU) in University Park, Texas.

Boeing vice-president of Government Operations Ziad Ojakli stated: “The courage, resilience and sacrifice of our veterans inspire us daily, and we are proud to stand by them during and after their military service. As we enter into this new and expanded relationship with the Bush Center, we renew our pledge to honor, empower, and uplift military veterans and their families and strengthen our commitment to civics education.”

The investment coincided with the unveiling of The Boeing Company Exhibition Gallery at the Bush Center—a new attraction exploring the American presidency and examining the consequential era during which President George W. Bush served as the nation’s Chief Executive. The gallery includes an 11 September 2001 exhibit, a replica of the Oval Office, and information pertaining to public policy under the second Bush administration. 

Bush Center president and CEO Ken Hersh remarked: “Boeing has been a champion of the Bush Center for many years. We are thrilled to see our relationship strengthen with their support of the museum and their continued support of our veterans programming. Both of these activities are important to our mission.”

Mr. Hersh added: “The Bush Center remains committed to building a compassionate society that ensures opportunity for everyone, strengthens our democracy, and advances free societies. Boeing’s investment in our work is so valuable to ensuring that we can increase our impact for years to come. It is a privilege to add their name to our permanent exhibit gallery in recognition of this major commitment.”

In 2018, Boeing became the founding program underwriter of the Bush Institute’s Stand-To Veteran Leadership Program, an initiative seeking to develop the leadership skills of veterans and those by whom veterans and their families are served.

Over the past decade, Boeing has provided nearly $40-million to a bipartisan group of presidential libraries, centers, sites, and memorials, the collections and community programming of which help foster deeper understanding and appreciation of civics education, United States history, and the precepts of democracy so abjectly perverted in recent years.

The group includes:       

  • Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial
  • John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum
  • The Obama Presidential Center
  • The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute
  • Harry S. Truman Presidential Library and Museum
  • George Washington’s Mount Vernon
  • The White House Historical Association.

Moreover, Boeing partners with veteran organizations to provide workforce transition support as well as recovery and rehabilitation programs addressing veterans’ mental-health and well-being. Boeing, over the last ten-years, has contributed more than $70-million to programs supporting veterans and their families.
