SANTA ANA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 -- Recognizing the countless contributions of the United States Armed Forces, Ingram Micro Inc.

In addition to recognizing veterans within the Ingram Micro workforce, more than 800 associates celebrated Veterans Day with the Color Guard Marines from Camp Pendleton and a donation of $2,500 to the Semper Fidelis Fund, which provides immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

"At Ingram Micro, it's the people who make the difference and on this day, we're especially proud of our associates who are veterans and all those who have served," said Keith Bradley, senior executive vice president and president, Ingram Micro North America.
