ESGR in the News


MINNEAPOLIS – The 934th Air Force Reserve and the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) hosted an Employer Bosslift Aug. 6.

The Bosslift started with a briefing by the 934th Commander, Col. Chris Lay.  He talked about strength, equipment, capabilities, missions and the importance of employer support to the Airmen of the 934th.  

Next on the docket was ESGR Bosslift Coordinator Bob Boone.  Bob spoke on the history, importance and mission of ESGR and USSERA.

The much anticipated moment had arrived.  That was flying in a C-130 over Lak Superior. Unfortunately the weather did not want to cooperate.  After over two hours of waiting the flight was cancelled.  All was not lost as employers did get to walk through a C-130 and talk with the crew. Plans are being made to reschedule the event for mid-October.

ESGR is a Department of Defense office 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.
