Companies cited for support of citizen soldiers

Three Grand Junction companies were nominated by employees for recognition for the Employer Support Freedom Awards from the U.S. Department of Defense.

Colorado West Regional Mental Health Center, JG Management Systems Inc. and Newpark Resources Inc. are among more than 3,000 companies nationwide recognized for their support of employees who serve in the National Guard and reserves. The Delta Correctional Center in Delta County also was nominated.

The Freedom Award was instituted in 1996 by Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve to recognize exceptional support from employers.

Employer Support was established as a Department of Defense agency 40 years ago and advocates relevant initiatives, recognizes outstanding support, increases awareness of applicable laws and resolves conflict between service members and employers.

Semifinalists for the 2012 Freedom Award will be announced later next month.
