SD Guard/Reservists nominate area businesses

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, a Department of Defense Committee, announced that 19 South Dakota employers are nominated for the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award.

     Public Affairs Officer Beth Sherman says the award is unique because employers are nominated by their Reservist or Guard employees.

     Sherman says the nominations demonstrate employer's commitment to Guardsmen and Reservists.  She says when somebody deploys that usually leaves a spouse at home, perhaps with some children.  She says anything can happen and her agency hears about support from employers who then rally around that service member's spouse and take care of them.

     Area Freedom Award nominations include:  Daktronics from Brookings, Leadership Foundry from Dell Rapids, the City of Harrisburg; Bartel Counseling Services, Gun-Up, Lewis Drug and Raven Industries all of Sioux Falls and the Sioux Falls Police Department.

     Sherman says national winners will be announced next month for a summer award cremony.
