SAFE Boats International Team Members receive Patriot Award from DOD 
Bremerton, WA (July 23, 2013): SAFE Boats International and its Team Members Roger Santos and Sean St. Amand were honored with the Patriot Award by the Washington State Employer Support of the Guard and Reserves (ESGR) last month at their all-company quarterly meeting.  The award is  given to companies and their employees who accommodate the active and sometimes unpredictable schedule of National Guardsmen and US Military Reservists. 

Sean St. Amand, SAFE Boats Team Member and active United States Coast Guard Reservist, nominated Roger Santos, Retired Washington Army National Guardsman and current Manager at SAFE Boats, who was selected to receive the award on behalf of the company.  Santos was recognized by St. Amand for his support and flexibility that have allowed him to deploy and serve, noting that Santos and the company have gone “out of their way” to allow him time to prepare for deployments both personally and professionally.

SAFE Boats has always been a strong advocate of hiring veterans and those who actively serve.  The company employs over 80 Team Members who are Veterans, including the company’s CEO, COO, and VP of Operations in Bremerton.  Four Team Members currently serve as active duty reservists (MK2 Sean St. Amand, US Coast Guard Reserve, BM2 Robert Luder, US Coast Guard Reserve, SGT Nate McCarthy, US Army Reserve, and MSgt. Andy Remis, Washington Air National Guard).

In addition to the Patriot Award, SAFE Boat’s CEO Dennis Morris signed a “Statement of Support   Certificate”, further committing the company’s support of those who serve.

 “We are proud to have Roger Santos recognized by the ESGR, and proud to have him as a leader at SAFE Boats.  As an organization, we strive to be good global, national, and local citizens.  I can think of no better way to demonstrate that than thru our enthusiastic support of the veterans and reservists we hire.“ said Dennis Morris, Chief Executive Officer.
