ESGR in the News


MINNEAPOLIS – Joshua Tuchscherer of Meshbesher and Spence, Attorneys at Law, Minneapolis, received the Patriotic Employer award from ESGR Volunteer Christie Nixon recently. 

Tuchscherer, a partner at the law firm, was nominated by Staff Sgt. Stephanie Hammer, a U.S. Army Reserve Soldier and member of the 204th Army Band at Ft. Snelling, who is a paralegal at the firm.

Hammer nominated Tuchscherer for the Patriotic Employer award to recognize his support of her frequent and short notice Army Reserve duty.  As Operations Commander for the 204th Army Band, she is called to short term and short notice military duty frequently.  Hammer initially enlisted in the Army in 1981, and brings the same longevity to her career as a paralegal, with over 35 years of experience.

Tuchscherer and others from the firm who were in attendance at the award expressed their continued appreciation for Hammer’s professionalism and commitment to her civilian and military jobs.

ESGR is a Department of Defense program which 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.
