Wyoming Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (WYESGR) is a Department of Defense program operating under the purview of the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Manpower and Reserve Affairs. We are a volunteer-led and volunteer-centric committee composed of approximately 27 volunteers and 3 full-time staff.
Our mission is to develop and promote a supportive work environment for service members in the Reserve Components through outreach, recognition, and education that increases awareness of applicable laws (e.g., the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act of 1994) and resolves employment conflicts between the service members and their employers through free, impartial mediation (Ombudsman Services).

WASHINGTON – The Department of Defense honored the recipients of the 2023 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the highest U.S. government honor to employers for support of National Guard and Reserve, in a formal ceremony at the Pentagon Aug. 30.
WASHINGTON -Fifty years ago, the United States military began to fill its ranks solely with brave Americans who freely choose to defend our republic. Ever since the draft ended on July 1, 1973, Americans have joined our military out of conviction, not compulsion. Over the years, the members of our All-Volunteer Force have been motivated by patriotism, pride, and principle—by the desire to be a part of something bigger than themselves, and by their love for our exceptional nation.
