Proud of our veterans, thank you for your service!

Although it has been quite a difficult year for many, here in the US, November is the time of year to show thanks for all the many things we often take for granted like good health, our families, friends, and for our veterans that serve our country.

SOLIDWORKS is a proud supporter of our active military and veterans, and thank them for their service. We’ve had the pleasure of supporting Workshop for Warriors, which helps to train, certify and place veterans, wounded warriors, and transitioning service members into advanced manufacturing careers.
