Everyone calls him “Dick”!
Dick served with the U.S. Navy during World War II (WWII) from 1942 to 1946 in both the Atlantic and Pacific Theaters. He served as a Ships Cook and ended his tour with the U.S. Navy Band as a 2d Class Petty Officer. He currently is employed by Securitas Critical Infrastructure Services in St. Augustine, Florida.

In 2002, Dick was hired by Pinkerton Government Services, now known as SCIS. Dick says, “I enjoy the work and camaraderie of the people I work with. Chris Rice is my boss and he makes it a pleasure to go to work each day.”
Dick says that the most wonderful person in his life is his wife Dori, who has helped him through his life and accomplish all of his successes. Dick states, “Togetherness Works!!!” During WWII he only returned home twice, one of those was when he met Dori. In 1946 they were married and this coming September 2014 they will be married for 68 years.
I joined the Air Force in January 1969 after spending 6 months at Chico State. College was not for me. I had a very interesting and distinguished career in the AF. I accumulated a total of over 9000 hours of flying time, 700 hours of combat, and 2000 hours of instructor time. After receiving 39 medals including two Meritorious Service medals and three Air Medals I ended my career on the 1st of August 1998.
I joined the Securitas family in July of 2009 under the Pinkerton emblem. I worked for Pinkerton at Aero Jet in Rancho Cordova, CA. After one year I applied for a Supervisor position a job opportunity with Securitas Nuclear Security at Rancho Seco.. Not having much experience with Security I thought with my years of experience of Supervision in the Air Force could benefit me and Securitas. After being chosen for a Supervisors position I was placed as Operations Supervisor at the Rancho Seco ISFSI. After one year at this position I was chosen for Supervisor of the Quarter and then Supervisor of the Year. I believe my years in the Air Force has taught me the skills of being a good leader, and a mentor for all younger Officers I come in contact with. This company with the incredible support and job has got to be the best job I’ve ever had, of course, excluding my few years in the military.
I have been employed with Securitas since February 2011. Before then I served 8 years of honorable Active Duty services in the United States Marine Corps stationed at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, CA. I got out as a Sergeant. I joined at a time when our Country needed us the most. When 9/11 hit us when we least expected it, like others; and with the inspiration and support from family and friends, I joined the military to fight for our country and for what motivates us as Americans. While in the military, I was an 1812 Tank Crewman operating on an M1A1 Abrams Main Battle tank. After 6 years as a tank crewman, with 3 combat deployments to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, I transferred to the Base Headquarters Battalion, and then assumed the role as Range Safety Officer for the rifle range. There my experience, knowledge and skill set increased, as I became an 0931 Combat Marksmanship Instructor (formally, PMO Primary Marksmanship Instructor), training the Marines and Sailors from all the Units on board the Combat Center.
After the Military, I was hired on with Securitas in 2011 as a Security Officer with Pinkerton Government Services at Bell Helicopter in Amarillo, TX. While employed, I was promoted to assistant supervisor, and then promoted to Lead Supervisor, all within the first three years of employment with Securitas.
