Five interns from the program will join Anheuser-Busch’s wholly-owned distributorship (WOD) in Hawaii this spring.

“Current and former U.S. Army soldiers are among the most driven and disciplined leaders in the world,” said Melaina Macone, Director of Operations at the Hawaii WOD. “We are ecstatic for the opportunity to work alongside these service men and women over the next few months as part of our ongoing commitment to hire and support veterans throughout our company.”

The five U.S. Army soldiers in the internship program will be placed into different roles at Anheuser-Busch’s facility, including supporting the delivery and logistics team, warehouse operations and business administration.

With this partnership, Anheuser-Busch builds on its commitment to provide professional development opportunities and hands-on experiences to former and active service members who are ready to transition back into civilian life. 

For more than 150 years, Anheuser-Busch’s employees and family of wholesalers have proudly supported our armed forces, veterans and military dependents through a variety of programs and initiatives. Through our Folds of Honor campaign, we have donated over $12 million to the foundation and helped fund nearly 23,000 educational scholarships, specifically aimed at helping the families of fallen or disabled service men and women.

Since 1987, Anheuser-Busch and its Foundation have supported a number of military charities including: USO, Fisher House, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, Pentagon Memorial Fund, America Supports You, Marine Corps Heritage Foundation, Hispanic War Veterans of America, Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Korean War and Vietnam War Memorials, among others.
