For Extraordinary Support of Employees who serve in the Wisconsin National Guard and Reserve

Madison, Wisconsin - The Wisconsin Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), an agency of the Department of Defense, announced today that Ryan Brothers Ambulance will be honored with a Patriot Award in recognition of extraordinary support of their employees.

According to Fred McCormick, Wisconsin's ESGR Chair Emeritus, "The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them, have answered their nations's call to serve. Ryan Brothers Ambulance was nominated for being highly supportive of their employees in the National Guard and Reserve. Supportive supervisors 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. ESGR provides education, consultation, and if necessary mediation for employers of Guard and Reserve employees.
