The department’s Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve agency, is accepting nominations from servicemembers and their families for the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award. Nominations will be accepted through Jan. 19 at www.FreedomAward.mil.
Fifteen recipients from across the nation will be selected, representing small employers, large employers and public sector employers. The 2009 recipients will be announced this spring.
