Protective Options takes great pride in service to our country and is inspired to seek new ways to strengthen our support to those who have served in the military, recognizing that they have the talent, character, and commitment to duty that will help make our client’s missions successful.
As our company emphasizes safety and service excellence, we appreciate veterans’ experience in following established procedures; making sound decision in dynamic changing circumstances; commitment to service; and constant readiness. Our motto “Mission ready for today and tomorrow” is a reflection of that experience and commitment.
We know that one of the biggest issues facing men and women in the armed forces is finding good jobs when they leave active duty. We believe that hiring veterans is not only the right thing to do for veterans, but they are a great asset to our team. Our nation’s military and veterans represent the best this country has to offer and they bring meaningful skills to the workplace.
