I want to take a moment to recognize current and former service women and men and their families in honor of Veterans Day tomorrow in the United States. For those currently serving, I hope for your continued safety and protection.
In other parts of the world, November 11 is observed as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day, and we join you in honoring members of the armed forces who sacrificed in the line of duty.
We are grateful for your commitment and courage, unique skills and perspectives...
We proudly employ many current and former military personnel at Trident. We have customers around the world who do the same. We are grateful for your commitment and courage, unique skills and perspectives, and the leadership and teamwork you bring to our company and others.
Honoring our veterans and their families and remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice is something we’re committed to doing year-round. In the spirit of ensuring we remain true to caring for each other – one of our core values - we recently launched a new Military Fellows program through Hiring Our Heroes. The program aims to support the transition of active-duty service members and their families into corporate America while creating economic opportunity and a stronger, more diverse workforce.
We’re also honored to support K9 for Warriors, a program that aims to serve disabled veterans by pairing them with highly trained service dogs.
Working with organizations like Hiring Our Heroes and K9 for Warriors is the least we can do to support veterans and honor the memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice serving their country. Thank you to the brave individuals who selflessly serve and protect their countries—and the military families that support them. We are profoundly grateful for your dedication and sacrifice.
