COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho -- Operations Manager Josh Tracy of Aspen Dental was presented with a Patriot Award March 13, by Ty Corbett, east area chair for the Washington Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Committee, in recognition of extraordinary support of his employees serving in the Guard and Reserve.
Tracy was nominated by Air Force Reserve Lt. Col. Adam Mileski, a dentist at Aspen Dental. “No matter how short notice, Tracy always allows our providers to serve their military obligations,” said Mileski.
“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 Corbett. “Our Guard and Reserve members could not perform their military duty without knowing their civilian employer supports them 100 percent.”
“Thank you for the award,” said Tracy. “It is a privilege to serve those who serve our Nation.”
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.
