August 24th was officially designated Covered 6 Day in Moorpark by the City Mayor, Janice Parvin, during the grand opening of the Covered 6 Patriot Center, a 20,000-square-foot state-of-the-art training facility located on Patriot Drive.
More than 500 people, including Veterans and their families, attended the event, where the Moorpark Mayor praised Covered 6 for specializing in Physical Security training, Cyber training and Executive Protection. She gave special recognition to Chris Dunn, CEO, and Founder of Covered 6, for the training techniques and "for finding jobs for our Veterans."
"Chris is an Army veteran and former police detective in Los Angeles," Mayor Parvin told the guests. "He employs Veterans and has helped other companies hire Veterans – about 700 so far." She added that "Chris is an innovator, from his training programs to his tactical products. He has chosen the right town, Moorpark, on the right street, Patriot Drive, to grow his business. We are excited to welcome Chris and Covered 6 into our community."
Special guests at the Open House included United States Congressman Julia Brownley, members of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department and L.A. County Sheriff's Department, MMA legend Bas Rutten, and members of the Ventura SWAT team.
"Defend, Guard, Protect is the motto of Covered 6," Chris Dunn told the audience.
"The world has changed – it's volatile, it's uncertain, it's complex. And the threats have changed, so everyone is involved. Everyone is a First Responder, and everyone can train. The philanthropic vision of what we do with Veterans has now become one of our primary missions. We have been engaged in the longest war in U.S. history; we have people that have come out…and trying to get a job is extremely difficult because those skills don't necessarily apply. Veterans are one of our single greatest resources we have as a corporation."
