  • Progressive Builders honored by Department of Defense for Patriotic Support

WAYNE, Neb. – Kelby Herman, of Progressive Builders, was presented the Department of Defense Patriot Award on Aug. 13, by Jim Deuel, volunteer representing the Nebraska Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.

Herman was nominated for being highly supportive of his guard component employee, Spc. Joseph Burrows, a member of the 754th Chemical Company, Nebraska Army National Guard in Omaha.

“The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them have answered their nation’s call to serve, “Deuel said in his presentation. “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 recognize Progressive Builders with this award.”

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.
