TUKWILA, Wash. – Steven D. Weier, owner and principal attorney at WeierLaw in Tukwila, was presented with a Patriot Award by Larry Kirchner, military outreach representative for the Washington Committee Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, in recognition of his extraordinary support of an employee who serves in the Army Reserve. 

Weier was nominated by Army Reserve Lt. Col. Paul Apple, a senior attorney at WeierLaw. Apple expressed his appreciation for the support and accommodation provided by Weier, citing his support and understanding of his reserve military duties. “I feel that my supervisor and workplace does more than most employers I have had in the past,” said Apple. “My current workplace shows with actions, and not just words, that they support me to perform my reserve military service and they appreciate what the military and veterans have sacrificed to preserve our freedoms.”

“The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them, have answered their nation’s call to serve,” said Kirchner. “Supportive supervisors are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units.”

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.
