ESGR in the News


PRINCETON, W.Va. – Police Chief Tim Gray received the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Patriot Award recently for the extraordinary support he provides his employee James Carroll a sergeant with the West Virginia Army National Guard.

“National Guard and Reserve members bring tremendous skills and capabilities to our workforce, and employer support for their military service is critical to maintaining the strength of our Guard and Reserve units,” said John Miller state chair or representative. “By valuing the military service of their Guard and Reserve employees, employers are directly supporting the readiness and retention of our All-Volunteer Force, and our national defense.”

ESGR is a Department of Defense program that develops and promotes supportive work environments for service members in the National Guard and Reserve through outreach, recognition, and educational opportunities that increase awareness of applicable laws. ESGR also provides assistance in resolving conflicts between Service members and their employers.
