Every Veterans Day, Copart celebrates its veterans’ bravery and dedication to our country.
It is thanks to our Copart founder, Willis Johnson, we maintain a personal commitment to our U.S. veterans and make great efforts to recruit, hire and support veterans across the U.S.
Willis was drafted by the U.S. Army in 1966 to serve in Vietnam. He served as a forward observer in the 1st Infantry Division, also known as the Big Red 1. When he finished his year in the army, he received a Purple Heart for being injured during combat. His experience serving our country shaped many of the Copart leadership practices in place today and values that contribute to Copart’s success.
Copart is proud to have veterans in Team Copart.
We look forward to celebrating our veterans this year and ask that you reach out to veterans working for us to thank them. Check back on Veterans Day at TeamCopart.com/VeteransDay to see self-identified veterans working at Copart!
Note: If you are a Copart veteran, we would like to recognize you here. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org your information, so we can add you to this list.
