Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Freedom Award

15179029809_a8a6da3dbd_zJGMS is the recipient of the prestigious Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Freedom Award for our support to our Guard and Reserve component members of the Armed Forces. The Freedom Award is the highest recognition given by the U.S. Government to employers who have demonstrated exceptional support of their Guard and Reserve members of the Armed Forces and is presented by the Secretary of Defense. As a Marine, I am grateful that I work with a Family that takes care of my brothers and sisters in arms to the extent that JGMS does.

When called upon to serve in defense of our great nation, these reservists need to know that their employers have their backs and support them throughout this difficult time. With the help and dedication of each and every one of you, these soldiers can focus on the mission at hand with the full assurance that their families and they are fully supported and watched over. This focus ensures the highest chances of mission success and that they come back to us unharmed.

The motto of the ESGR sums it up best …We all serve.

“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.” — Albert Pike
