Dickinson Fleet Services (DFS) is honored to announce that Mr. Ryan Elmlinger has received the Department of Defense Patriot Award. This prestigious award to recognize employers who support those serving in the military was presented in a ceremony on August 28th, 2018.
Ryan was nominated by Nick Robinson, Cincinnati Shop Service Manager at DFS, who said, “Ryan has been 110% supportive since my re-enlistment. His drive to hire and also support the Veterans we have in our region means more to us than we can explain. This may seem to some as a “little” ordeal but to those of us in uniform, past and present, this is a HUGE deal. In closing, Ryan is not only a great friend, manager and mentor, he is also extremely deserving of this award.”
An employee serving in the National Guard or Reserve, or the spouse of a Guard or Reserve member, may nominate individual supervisors and bosses for support provided directly to the nominating Service member and his or her family. Patriot Awards are awarded to individual supervisors, not to an entire staff or organization as a whole.
At DFS, we’re proud to offer career opportunities to those who have sacrificed so much for our country by allowing for things such as flexible schedules, time off from work prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leave of absences if needed. Our goal is to create an environment where these individuals feel valued and supported. It is humbling to see members of our team, such as Nick, nominating their supervisors for such an honor as the Patriot Award.
ESGR is supported by a network of more than 3,750 volunteers in 54 committees located across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam-CNMI (Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands), Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Volunteers, hailing from small business and industry, government, education, and prior military service bring a vast wealth of experience to assist in serving employers, Service members, and their families. Together with Headquarters ESGR staff and a small cadre of support staff for each State Committee, volunteers work to promote and enhance employer support for military service in the Guard and Reserve.
