Does your boss know what you do when you're away at your military unit training?  Would you like your boss to visit you during a period of military training?  Discuss it with your chain of command.   They can reach out to our office at (802) 338-4187 or email and we can assist.

 As the annual training periods approach, we encourage you to consider nominating your boss for an ESGR Patriot Award.  It is a great way to show your appreciation for their support of your military obligations.  Take a few moments to write down how they support you during those periods when you are away for military duty (drill, annual training, school, deployment, etc), and then go to Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve > Service Members & Family > Nominate your Employer ( and fill out the online form. 

Like any organization, we are always looking for others to join our team of volunteers.  Do you know someone who may be a good fit for what we do?  For more information please visit our website Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve > Volunteers > Become a Volunteer ( and reach out to us.
