  • Nebraska Furniture Mart supervisor receives Department of Defense award for extraordinary support

OMAHA, Neb. – Nebraska Furniture Mart supervisor Stanley Sawicki, was presented with a Patriot Award August 12, by Lou Wagner, Nebraska Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve volunteers and area chair in recognition of extraordinary support of his employee serving in the Guard and Reserve.

Sawicki was nominated for being highly supportive of the Nebraska Army National Guard by his Reserve Component employee, Sgt. Julius Aquino.

“The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them have answered their nation’s call to serve,” said Wagner. “Supportive supervisors are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units, and it’s a pleasure for me to present this award to Stanley and Nebraska Furniture Mart.”

ESGR, a Department of Defense program, seeks to foster a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States.
