ESGR in the News


CAMP RIPLEY, Minn. – The 134th Brigade Support Battalion (BSB) conducted an Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Bosslift for soldier member employers June 9.

Part of the group rode to Camp Ripley on an Army Chinook helicopter from St. Paul Minnesota. Other employers lived near Camp Ripley and drove there. The day consisted of a Chinook ride for all the employers; a tour of the Camp Ripley Combined Maintenance facility; Brigade commander and ESGR Briefings; and a trip to the field to meet with soldiers and observe Mark 19 weapons firing. The employers were given a thorough look at the lives of their service members performing their military duties.

Bob Boone of Minnesota ESGR coordinated the Bosslift and gave the ESGR briefing on the employment rights of the Guard and Reserve service members
