TACOMA, Wash. – Vice President Steve White of Secure Pacific Corporation was presented with a Patriot Award March 1 by Ohad Lowy, military outreach director for the Washington Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve in recognition of extraordinary support of his employees serving in the Guard and Reserve.

White was nominated for being highly supportive of the Reserve Service by his former Reserve Component employee, Army Reserve Maj. Theodore Luna, who worked as security consultant at when he submitted his nomination.

“The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them, have answered their nation’s call to serve,” said Lowy. “Supportive supervisors like Steve White are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units.”

“Secure Pacific has been understanding of my commitment to the Army Reserves,” said Luna.  “During my time with the company, Steve has been supportive of my time being gone or extended amount of time throughout the year.  I have given them short notice on several occasions and I am thankful for their understanding and their ability to cover during my absence.” 

“Secure Pacific is very proud to support our men and women who wear the military uniform and understand our National Guard and Reserve employees have duties and responsibilities that may take them into harm’s way,” said White.  “Major Luna served our organization well, and we are proud to have had him on our team. Being nominated for the Patriot Award was a pleasant surprise and we are honored to receive this award.”

ESGR, a Department of Defense program, seeks to foster a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States.
