ALEXANDRIA, La. (AEX)- England Airpark said that the Louisiana Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, an office of the Department of Defense, presented Boss Patriot Awards to England Airpark Fire Department Chief Joe Hamner and Cpt. John Evans at a ceremony at the England Airpark Fire Station.

The Boss Patriot Award recognizes outstanding support for our active duty reservists. They were nominated for the awards by fellow England Airpark fireman SPC Stephen Jensen who has recently returned from a year-long tour of duty with the USAR 395 OD Co.

According to a representative of ESGR, supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s National Guard and Reserve units.

As the 1.3 million members of the National Guard and Reserve continue to perform an increasing number of unique missions with America’s borders and beyond, ESGR will continue to be the resource for the employers of citizen warriors. More information about ESGR Employer Outreach Programs and volunteer opportunities are available at www.esgr.mil.
