WASHINGTON – Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis named ArgenTech Solutions as one of the 15 recipients of the 2018 Employer Support Freedom Award today, signifying ArgenTech Solutions as one of the nation’s top employers for National Guard and Reserve service members.
“It is my pleasure to recognize these 15 outstanding civilian employers,” said Mattis. “Our National Guard and Reserve members are a vital part of our defense strategy and deserve as much support as this country can provide. These 15 employers lead the way in providing that. We are grateful to them for their role in helping to keep our nation safe and secure.”
ArgenTech Solutions, Inc. along with 14 other recipients of the 2018 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award joins 250 past recipients of the award.

Employees retain the same benefits for up to three months. Furthermore, the company trains their supervisory staff in Mental Health First Aid for Veterans and Military through the National Council of Behavioral Health to help identify and respond to danger signs of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
