Rick Skaggs, Jesse Paredes and Charles Perez Honored by Department of Defense for Patriotic Support

(DALLAS) June 21, 2017TSP (Technology Service Professionals), a privately held IT services company, announces three employees were presented with a Patriot Award on June 19. Rick Skaggs, president and co-founder; Jesse Paredes, field service manager; and Charles Perez, operations coordinator, received this high honor by Larry Thompson, area #10 chair for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Committee (ESGR), for their support of Guard and Reserve employees.

“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 Thompson. “Supportive supervisors are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units.”

Skaggs, Paredes and Perez were nominated by First Lieutenant David Logan, an associate storage engineer at TSP.

“I proudly served in the United States Army for 3 years and I would do it all over again if I had the chance,” said Skaggs. “In 1973, I went to basic training as an 18-year-old kid and when I completed my military service with an Honorable Discharge in 1976, I was a man. It was in the Army that I learned responsibility, honor, pride, and hard work. I learned so many life lessons and got to travel all over the world – I will be forever thankful.”

This special award comes on the heels of a pending deployment for Logan. TSP is proud to employ current and former military personnel and is fully committed to providing those employees with the time off they need to fulfill their duties in defense of this great nation.
