Veterans & Military
We have a long history of supporting our military and veterans
Throughout our lengthy history of service to our communities, Dominion Energy has made support for the military, veterans and their families a priority. Beginning in World War I, when our employees sent soldiers care packages, and continuing until today, we have focused on those who serve our country.
"From an ethical standpoint, serving those who sacrificed so much to serve us is the right thing to do."
- Thomas F. Farrell, II, Dominion Energy Chairman, President and CEO
