Companies Honored for Employing Guardsmen

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of Nevada companies that employ National Guard Members and Reservists were recognized Wednesday by their military employees.

Representatives for those companies were able to tour the Nevada Air Guard Base in Reno to see first-hand what some of their employees do while working as Guardsmen and Women on weekends.

"They just love it, they get their hands on, they touch the equipment they touch the airplanes they touch the trucks, they see the firefightings videos, those kinds of things they're just overwhelmed," says Richard Dickerson, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.

The employers were recommended for today's honor because of their support for Guardsmen and Reservists while they're deployed.

Active duty deployment can cause them to leave work for weeks or months at a time.
