Ross Eisenberg and Robyn Boerstling are awarded the Employer Patriot Award for Supervisors by the Department of Defense for their flexibility and exceptional support of the service of NAM employee Jason Melton in the Nebraska Air National Guard. The Adjutant General of Nebraska, Maj. Gen. Daryl L. Bohac presented Ross and Robyn with their awards at the NAM.

Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) is the lead Defense Department office promoting cooperation and understanding between civilian employers and their National Guard and Reserve employees. Established in 1972, ESGR operates within the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs. ESGR develops and promotes supportive work environments for service members in the Reserve Components through outreach, recognition, and educational opportunities that increase awareness of applicable laws and resolves employer conflicts between the service members and their employers.

Our Nation has relied heavily on Guard and Reserve service members since entering continuous operations more than a decade ago. Employer and supervisor support enhances retention rates in the Armed Forces and in the end, strengthens our national security. To recognize employers and supervisors who support their Guard and Reserve employees, ESGR grants a series of Department of Defense (DoD) awards including the Employer Patriot Award for Supervisors.

Recognizing supportive employers and supervisors is vital to ESGR's mission. ESGR's 54 State Committees actively promote awards as a key element in furthering employer support, while strengthening relationships between service members and employers. DoD awards honor the sacrifices made by so many employers and supervisors year after year.

Happy #ThankfulThursday! District of Columbia ESGR is very thankful for two employers who go the extra mile for their service member. Yesterday we had the honor of supporting The Adjutant General of Nebraska National Guard, Major General Bohac and Air Guardsman TSgt Melton in recognizing TSgt Melton’s civilian employers, Ross Eisenberg and Robyn Boerstling, with Patriot Awards for their understanding and unwavering encouragement.
