Sacramento, CA – After several years of service, to both his country as a sailor in the United States Navy and then to disabled veterans throughout California as the Executive Director of the California Disabled Veteran Business Alliance, Rich Dryden celebrated his retirement. Karl Ross and Dawn Hall attended the celebration at the Firehouse Restaurant in Sacramento, CA. As a surprise, a framed photo of Rich in his dress uniform was signed by many colleagues and friends. Messages such as “your service to our country and to DVBE’s is beyond outstanding” and “you will still be my ‘go-to’ guy” serve as a small demonstration of his consistent above and beyond accomplishments.
According to their website, the mission of the Disabled Veteran Business Alliance is to be an organization that “empowers, provides resources to, and works side-by-side with disabled veterans to promote and support them in establishing, maintaining and growing viable business enterprises.”
