When Greenwood was invited to sing “God Bless the USA” at the 2017 ABC Supply National Managers’ Meeting, it became apparent that he and ABC Supply embraced the same principles of liberty, community and pride in being an American.
“As I stated in my song, ‘God Bless the USA,’ ‘There ain’t no doubt I love this land.’ My love of the land came from being raised on a farm in California and singing for USO shows while I was still in high school. I felt that same sense of pride from everyone I met who works within the framework of ABC,” said Greenwood.
ABC Supply Co. Inc., based out of Beloit, Wisconsin, was founded on a vision that would give people who work hard the opportunity to accomplish the American dream. This patriotic vision—coupled with their deeply rooted commitment to honor and respect those who serve in our nation’s military—is why American pride is one of ABC Supply’s core values.
“Lee represents the same core values that are at the heart of our company, and we are excited to continue his relationship with the ABC family,” said Mike Jost, ABC Supply’s Chief Operating Officer.
