BILLINGS, Mont. – Dr. Jeff Golini Ph.D. of All American Pharmaceutical was awarded a Department of Defense Patriot Award in recognition of extraordinary support of his employee who is the spouse of a Montana Army National Guard member.
Golini was nominated by Montana Army National Guard spouse Brooke Bridge whose husband serves in the Montana Army National Guard. The award was presented to Bridge on behalf of Golini, who couldn’t attend the ceremony, by Montana Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve volunteer Brynn Schwarz.
The Spouse Patriot Award was developed by ESGR to publicly recognize civilian employers who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to the spouse of a service member serving in the Guard or Reserve. Without supportive employers, the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units cannot be maintained.
Bridge’s nomination reads, “My supervisor goes out of his way to show support to our troops including things like visiting VA gyms and supplying 1 Mission Nutrition gear to soldiers. He is very understanding of military duties and responsibilities that me and my family have to uphold. He is a true patriot.”
“Congratulations Dr. Jeff Golini PhD of All American Pharmaceutical for being supportive civilian employer of a Montana Guard member’s spouse,” said Schwarz. “You provide a valuable service to our country by hiring military family members. We applaud your own service and thank you for being an understanding employer.”
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.
