After wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, rethinking how National Guard members are deployed

With the final military withdrawal from Afghanistan underway, a few state legislators in the U.S. are reconsidering the use of their National Guard units for undeclared foreign wars, like the campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan. Nearly half of the troops deployed to both countries over the past 20 years were from the National Guard and reserves. Special correspondent Mike Cerre reports.

Lovelace Medical Group recognized by ESGR NM for supporting NMNG during COVID Response

By Joseph Vigil, Chief of Public Affairs, NMNG

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Maj. Gen. Ken Nava, the Adjutant General of New Mexico, teamed up with Mike Kakusa, state chair for ESGR New Mexico, to present the Seven Seals and Above and Beyond awards to Dr. John Cruickshank and his staff at Lovelace Medical Group for their unwavering support of the New Mexico National Guard mission during the COVID-19 public health crisis.

When the pandemic hit full force and Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and our agency partners requested New Mexico National Guard assistance, Cruickshank supported NMMG efforts by allowing six of his medical professionals employed with Lovelace, who also serve in the New Mexico Army and Air National Guard, to come on orders and carry out the vital role of planning, preparation and ex*****on of COVID-19 medical missions to include expanding medical capacity for the potential shortage of ICU hospital beds, vaccinations and testing.

"On behalf of the New Mexico National Guard, thank you Dr Cruickshank and the entire medical group for your support," said Nava. "As we all know, COVID has totally changed our lives and these six medical professionals have been very involved with our COVID medical response. To all the medical community - doctors, nurses, nurse techs and support staff, thank you for everything you have done to help us get through this. You have been instrumental in helping New Mexicans weather the storm."

In addition to thanking the Lovelace Medical Group for the great support, Kakuza said that we as a nation could not survive without our Guard and Reserve or without our employers who allow our Guard and Reserve members to do what they do.

While accepting the awards, Cruickshank said, "this is an honor for us that is near and dear to our hearts here and across our entire the Lovelace organization and I appreciate what you are doing here to recognize our clinicians. While we and our patients have missed them, getting called to work this mission was incredibly important. We couldn't have succeeded in our mission without you as well."

Col. Craig Gilcrease, the NMNG state surgeon who is employed by Lovelace, said he was grateful to his employer for their support so he nominated them for the awards.

"While Lovelace took a hit with their medical staffing, they were very supportive and flexible in us being able to carry out our Guard mission," said Gilcrease.

Along with presenting Cruickshank with one of his coins for excellence, Nava also coined Dr. David Hoang for covering down in the hospital ICU while our Guard medical professionals served on the military side.

Gilcrease said Hoang is one of the hardest working and most valuable team members and was very grateful to him for all the patients he took care of during COVID in the ICU along with his leadership and all the emergency stuff he took care of in the hospital.

The Seven Seals award is presented in recognition of significant individuals or organization achievement, initiative, or support that promotes and supports the ESGR mission, to include the efforts of more than 4,500 volunteers who carry out ESGR's mission across the nation on a daily basis.

NEW MEXICO MILITARY INSTITUTE NAMED 2021 SECRETARY OF DEFENSE EMPLOYER SUPPORT FREEDOM AWARD FINALIST

WASHINGTON ¬– Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) is pleased to announce New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI) has been named one of 30 finalists for the 2021 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, in recognition of the organization’s support for its National Guard and Reserve employees.

“I am honored to congratulate these 30 outstanding employers, who have distinguished themselves in supporting their Reserve Component employees,” said Mr. Ron Bogle, ESGR’s National Chair. “Employers play a critical role in the readiness and success of our National Guard and Reserve forces, and by valuing and supporting their employees’ military service, they are making a direct contribution to our Nation’s security.”

New Mexico Military Institute, along with 29 other finalists were selected from 3,382 nominations received from Guardsmen and Reservists highlighting how their civilian employers went far beyond what the federal law requires to support them. The finalists represent large and small employers, as well as public sector organizations. Celebrating its 25th year, the Freedom Award began in 1996 under the auspices of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve to recognize exceptional employer support, with 295 honorees to date.

New Mexico Military Institute supports their military employees by service to community, state, and country are part of the core values at NMMI. Military duty is not just encouraged but celebrated by the leadership and faculty. NMMI offers a comprehensive package of benefits to Guard & Reservists to include paid military leave, additional leave before and after military duty, on-site medical services, discounted dining services, and access to on campus athletic facilities. Dependents of out of state or internationally stationed Service members (Guard, Reserve, and active duty) receive in-state tuition rates. The average savings amounts to nearly $6,000 per school year. During military leave, Guard & Reservists continue to accumulate vacation and sick leave. Recruiting and hiring of Guard, Reserve, and Veterans is accomplished through job postings through emails to
alumni, and military affiliated organizations. The family-like environment boosts morale and provides military mentorship for Guard and Reservists as well.

“New Mexico Military Institute has consistently demonstrated genuine commitment to their Citizen-Soldiers. NMMI has fully supported all of its service members through deployments and the high demands of various leadership positions that each service member has held throughout their military careers. I personally could not have maintained the high tempo of completing the Army War College while balancing my military service as a brigade commander and Chief of Staff without the support and understanding of NMMI” said Colonel Jason Garcia, who nominated NMMI for the award.

The 15 employers selected to receive the 2021 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award will be announced early this summer.
