ESGR in the News


OMAHA, Neb. – Jonathan Coleman, Deputy Branch Chief, Federal-State Audit and Resource Management Division, Office of Investigation, Enforcement and Audit with USDA Food Safety Inspection Service in Omaha, accepted the Department of Defense Seven Seals Award presented by Ron Boro, a volunteer representing the Nebraska Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).

Coleman was presented the award on behalf of Sgt. 1st Class Linwood Pender, a member of the United States Armey Reserve, in recognition of USDA’s outstanding support to the military members. Pender writes of his supervisor Jonathan Coleman, “It is wonderful to work for someone who is truly passionate about his job. Jonathan is definitely passionate about his job and equally passionate about each employee being successful in their position. In my particular case, this did not just cover my position as a Program Auditor under his supervision. Jonathan was equally interested in my success during my military deployment.”

“The Seven Seals award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding support and cooperation to the military members in the area, who like the citizen warriors before them have answered their nation’s call to serve,” said Boro in his presentation. “Supportive businesses 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 USDA Food Safety Inspection Service 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. For more information about ESGR outreach programs or volunteer opportunities, visit
