Soldiers Thank Civilian Employers For Their Support

Posted: Updated:

Local soldiers said thank you to their civilian employers Tuesday afternoon for their endless support of those who serve our country.

The North Dakota Committee of Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve honored seven Minot businesses with the Patriot Award.

In order for the Guard and Reserve to live out their mission, they rely on an all volunteer force to carry out duties and responsibilities.

"This is the first level of award where a soldier or a member of the Guard or Reserve nominates his or her employer for the kind of work they've done and we try to recognize those employers,” says Robert Weflad, ND ESGR Committee State Chair.

The Minot Target was also recognized with the Above and Beyond Award for their exceeding level of support of the military. ESGR is always accepting nominations for the Patriot and Above and Beyond Awards. For more information visit: www.esgr.mil.
