Terry Allvord joined RIX Industries five years ago to continue his service to our nation. As the Director of Business Development for RIX, he believes that our ability to connect on a personal level is key to building successful long-term customer relationships.
Terry’s belief and business motto was recently confirmed when he and his family attended a Navy milestone, the commissioning of USS Rafael Peralta (DDG-115). The commissioning of this ship became a family affair when Terry’s son, LT. Chase Allvord, USN was recognized as the longest serving member on the Navy’s newest destroyer. He was honored during the commissioning ceremony as the first Officer of the Deck.
USS Rafael Peralta (DDG-115), the newest Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, was commissioned at Naval Air Station North Island on July 29, 2017. The ship was commissioned after Mr. Rafael Peralta, a U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Originally from Mexico,
Peralta was killed in 2004 during the second Battle of Fallujah in Iraq. He posthumously received the Navy Cross for his heroic actions that saved the lives of fellow Marines.
