LAKE CITY, Fla. - Attorney Lisa A. Schlitzkus was presented a Patriot Award recently by Tim Lambert and Karen McClain of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve in recognition of her patriotism and tremendous support of the men and women who serve in the National Guard and Reserve. Not only does she support those who serve, she is also very supportive of the spouses of Guard and Reserve Service members.
“The Patriot Award was created by the Department of Defense to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation with members of the National Guard and Reserve, who like the Citizen Warriors before them, have answered the Nation’s call to serve,” said Lambert, ESGR State Vice-Chair for the North Florida Region.
Almost half of our Nation’s military strength resides in the National Guard and Reserve. These brave men and women perform critical roles such as homeland defense and serve around the world to ensure our freedom. This would not be possible without the support of people like Lisa A. Schlitzkus.
ESGR, a Department of Defense program, 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.
