On this Veteran’s Day and Remembrance Day, Kilmer House salutes veterans across the world.

Since the Spanish American War in 1898, Johnson & Johnson and its operating companies around the world have had many employees who have served, and continue to serve, their countries in the military.  To honor our employee veterans and their family members, here are some photos from our archives of employee veterans from our early history.

To read some of their stories, here are some additional posts:
