Our Commitment to the Military and Veterans

We appreciate our long history of partnership with the U.S. military and continue to make products to help protect our troops and support their missions. 3M stands behind the U.S. military with homegrown innovations that withstand the toughest challenges.

We are proud of the many military veterans, service members and military spouses that make up our 93,000 employees. We value the unique skills and experiences they bring to the table, allowing us to apply our science in ways that make a positive impact on people’s lives. Our 3M Military Support Network provides active support and outreach to employee veterans and their families, including scholarships, professional development, military speaker series, networking opportunities and benefits. For example, to further support employees in the National Guard or Reserve units with their ongoing training responsibilities, 3M offers four weeks of paid leave for military training, with the potential to earn differential pay for the difference between their 3M and military pay.
