Meet Our Veterans

Our mission at RRDS is to support the men and women of the U.S. armed forces. There is no better way to do so than to hire those who have already given their oath, put on the uniform, and served their country in the military. At RRDS, we are proud and honored to have the experience and professionalism of the U.S. military veterans working as an integral part of our company.


The Veterans of RRDS

Max Sun
Max Sun

Max served in the U.S. Navy as a Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate and was slated to receive a commission as a Nuclear Submarine Officer prior to sustaining injuries that ultimately resulted in a medical discharge.

After separation, Max tried to enlist in other branches but could not obtain a medical waiver for his previous injuries. Seeking to serve a greater purpose, Max joined RRDS as a Technical Monitor and worked his way up through the ranks.

At RRDS, Max serves as Vice President of Supply Chain Management. In this role, Max ensures that the warfighter has the critical supplies and services they need to complete their mission and return home safely. He finds purpose in standing behind those who serve.

Michael served in the U.S. Marine Corps in the Infantry and as a Mortarman. He deployed to Afghanistan, where he assisted the Afghan National Army (ANA) in operations combatting the terrorist threat in the country.

When he left the military, Michael used his training and experience to overcome the myriad of obstacles inherent in the transition back into the civilian world.
