Nominations Sought For 2013 Freedom Award

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

Nominations are now being accepted for the 2013 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award.

This special award is given to employers that go to extraordinary lengths to support their employees serving in the National Guard and Reserve.

The Department of Defense is encouraging all Guard and Reserve members, or family members acting on their behalf, to nominate their employers.

Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve will accept nominations at www.FreedomAward.mil through January 21, 2013.

"Guard and Reserve members understand better than anyone how critical America's employers are to our national security, which is why we look to them to tell us which employers deserve this distinguished honor," said Ron Young, Executive Director, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. "We call on all Guardsmen and Reservists who have received outstanding support from their employer to nominate them for the 2013 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award. There really is no better way to thank these employers for standing firmly behind our military men and women."

The 2013 recipients will be announced in early summer and honored in Washington, D.C. during a ceremony next fall.
