After careers in the US Marine Corps and US Navy, the concept of Reed Charters formed as a veteran organization that would be a second platform for taking care of veterans and their families. The company’s ethos is ‘Mission First, People Always!’ Our benefits to our employees exceed those we enjoyed while on Active Duty wearing the cloth of our Nation’s tip of the spear. We take pride in loyalty to our Team and superior service to our clients. We create unity of effort with our clients to optimize solutions and innovate.
Mission first, people always!
