ESGR in the News

22

GREAT FALLS, Mont. – TJ Miller of CHS was presented the Department of Defense with an Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Patriot Award. The award nomination came from U.S. Army Reserve Spc. Victoria Leach with the 889th Quartermaster Company. The award is given in recognition of her employer’s extraordinary support of her military obligations.

The Patriot Award was developed by ESGR, an office of the Department of Defense, to publicly recognize civilian employers who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to an employee who has a spouse serving in the Guard or Reserve. Employer support is key to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve.

TJ Miller signed Statement of Support certificate to then display at CHS Nutrition. The Statement of Support program is the cornerstone of ESGR’s effort to gain and maintain employer support for the Guard and Reserve. The intent of the program is to increase employer support by encouraging employers to act as advocates for employee participation in the military.

Congratulations TJ Miller of CHS Nutrition for being a supportive civilian employer of our country’s service members. You provide a valuable service to our country by hiring Guard and Reserve members.

For 50 years ESGR has worked to develop a culture in which all employer support and value the employment and military service of members of the United States National Guard and Reserve. For more information about ESGR outreach programs visit www.ESGR.mil.
