SEQUIM, Wash. – Joe D’Amico, president of Security Services Northwest, received the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Patriot Award recently for the extraordinary support he provided his then employee Oregon Army National Guard Spc. Brian Pollack, who at the time of the nomination worked as an armed security officer.  The award was presented to D’Amico by Washington ESGR Employer Outreach Coordinator Jim Miller and Public Affairs Director Ohad Lowy during a virtual meeting.

“The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees who have answered their nation’s call to serve,” said Miller.  “Supportive supervisors are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units.”

National Guard and Reserve members bring tremendous skills and capabilities to our workforce, and employer support for their military service is critical to maintaining the strength of our Guard and Reserve units,” said Lowy. “By valuing the military service of their Guard and Reserve employees, employers are directly supporting the readiness and retention of our All-Volunteer Force, and our national defense.”

“Mr. D’Amico is a strong supporter of our men and women who serve in our armed forces,” said Pollack.  “Mr. D’Amico is extremely supportive when I leave for my national guard duties and frequently checks on my well-being.”

“It’s an honor to provide employment to those serving this great Nation,” said D’Amico in response to receiving the Patriot Award.

ESGR is a Department of Defense program that develops and promotes supportive work environments for service members in the National Guard and Reserve through outreach, recognition, and educational opportunities that increase awareness of applicable laws. ESGR also provides assistance in resolving conflicts between Service members and their employers.
