ESGR in the News


ST. PAUL, Minn. –  Sgt. 1st Class Luke Stombaugh of the Minnesota Army National Guard, presented an ESGR Patriotic Employer Award to Debra Ranthum of the Ramsey County Community Corrections unit. 

The presentation was accomplished via a virtual setting with Luke’s co-workers in attendance. The award was presented on December 15, 2021 in recognition of Debra’s ongoing strong support of Stombuagh as he finished a deployment for Operation Inherent Resolve and within months was called to duty for Operation Safety Net, a multiagency effort for potential civil unrest in April 2021.

ESGR is a Department of Defense program which seeks to foster a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States.  For more information about ESGR outreach programs or volunteer opportunities, call (800) 336-4590 or visit
