RISE Armament Receives HIRE Vets Gold Medallion Award

The national award recognizes employers for their efforts to recruit and employ veterans.

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma — RISE Armament, a premier manufacturer and supplier of triggers, components, and firearms is pleased to announce that the company was presented the Gold Medallion Award from the HIRE Vets Medallion Program.

The HIRE Vets Medallion Program recognizes employers for their efforts to recruit, employ, and retain our nation’s veterans. The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is the only veteran hiring award at the federal level. Its criteria allow for the highest level of recognition for employers who are committed to veteran careers.

“We’re very honored to receive this recognition,” said Matt Torres, president of RISE Armament. “But more than that, we’re proud and honored to employ veterans who play a major role in the success of our company.”

The award emphasizes the importance of prioritizing and encouraging successful veteran hiring and retention and signals to veterans that an employer is committed to and supports America’s heroes.

President Donald J. Trump signed the Honoring Investments in Recruiting and Employing American Military Veterans (HIRE Vets) Act into law in May 2017. The Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Employment and Training Service (VETS) administers the HIRE Vets Medallion Program.
