As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”
— John F. Kennedy
We are Proud of our Veterans
Today, as we honor and pay tribute to our American Veterans, past and present, we would like to celebrate our very own American heroes, and advocate for businesses to show their appreciation by hiring veterans

Shortly after his transition, Sharp joined the risk3sixty team and has gone on to become a pivotal team member, taking on numerous new roles and responsibilities.
Why Businesses Should Hire Veterans
Our veterans are what businesses would consider non-traditional hires. They may not have comparative private sector experience, or brand certifications that other organizations require, but they bring exponential value to our business.
Gratitude without action is words without meaning. The best way to show your gratitude and appreciation is to hire them.
“I feel that it is important to hire and develop veterans because they stepped up to answer our nation’s call and put everything on the line ‘to support and defend the Constitution…’ If you read the Oath of Enlistment or the Oath of Commissioned Officers, it’s basically a person writing a blank check to the nation for everything up to and including one’s life in service to the nation. That is weighty; it is not without cost – many have paid the ultimate price or have friends who have paid that price, and on the positive side, serving is also an honor.”
