Currently serving National Guardsmen and Reservists can nominate their civilian employer for the 2018 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award. It is the U.S. government's highest award for large, small, and public organizations (not individuals, e.g. a supervisor, manager, etc.) that provide outstanding support of their Guard and Reserve employees. The nomination form takes about 10-15 minutes to complete.
Click "Nominate Employer" on the homepage, and then tell the story of how your employer supports you and fellow military employees. Up to 15 employers will be chosen to receive the Freedom Award and be honored with a ceremony at the Pentagon in August. Nomination season runs through Dec. 31, 2017.
