OTHELLO, Wash. – Tim Seibel, director of Ancillary Services at CBHA, received the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Patriot Award by Washington ESGR East Central co-Chair Judy West in recognition of his employee serving in the Army Reserve.

Seibel was nominated by Army Reserve Sgt. Colt Field, a 340B program coordinator at CBHA. “I nominated Tim because he supported me while I was getting ready to deploy to Honduras,” said Field.  “I am a Pharmacy Tech and I ran the clinic pharmacy for the base while I was there. He helped me by giving me a very flexible schedule, time off to train, caring for my family and travel for all of the different things that I needed to get done before I left. He supported and encouraged me to make sure that I was as ready as possible and that my family would be taken care of while I was gone.”

“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 West. “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.”

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.
