Nominate Employers for ESGR Patriot Award

One way to encourage employers to do the right thing for deployed National Guard and Reserve members is to nominate them for an award.
You (or any NG/Reserve member) can nominate a boss for a "Patriot Award" through Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).

According to ESGR's handy Online Application Form:
Your employer will receive a Department of Defense Certificate of Appreciation and a Patriot lapel pin. All members of the National Guard and Reserve are eligible to nominate their employers.

Your boss may be eligible for higher recognition, but only if you take the time to explain. Please write a few sentences below to explain why your boss deserves this recognition.
It doesn't take more than a few minutes to fill out the form and reward a boss who does the right thing. This may encourage them and their peers (...not to mention their competitors...) to keep it up or even to do better. The next deployed servicemember may have you to thank!
