Time is running out to nominate employers for the 2012 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award. The award is the highest recognition given by the U.S. Government to civilian employers of military employees. As of now, only 8 Montana employers have been nominated. Members of the Reserve and National Guard are encouraged to nominate the employers that have supported them.


Reserve and National Guard members, or a family member on their behalf, can submit nominations at www.FreedomAward.mil.  The 2012 award recipients will be announced by early summer and honored in Washington, DC during a special ceremony early next fall.
