FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) July 06, 2022
ESGR has served our country for more than 45 years, fostering a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States. These citizen warriors could not defend and protect us at home and abroad without the continued promise of meaningful civilian employment for themselves and their families. ESGR has continued to adapt to meet the needs of Reserve Component members, their families, and America’s employers by joining forces with a network of other national, state, and local government and professional trade organizations. Together, We All Serve!
Maryland Employer Support of the Guard and Reserves State Chair Dr. Stephen Maguire interviewed the ESGR Seven Seals Award Winner, Frederick based company, FoodPRO Corp’s President, Scott Brunk and FoodPRO employee and National Guard Reserve SPC Samuel Hernandez, during Maryland's celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the ESGR at the Maryland National Guard's Headquarters Fifth Regiment Armory, Baltimore, MD on June 29, 2022.
Back in December, Mr. Brunk was nominated for the seven Seals Award by a FoodPRO team member, SPC Samuel A. Hernandez, who was overseas at the time. SPC Hernandez is in the 29th Millitary Police Company of the Maryland Army National Gaurd in Westminster.
Mr. Brunk signed a “Letter of Support” to ESGR at the 50th Anniversary Celebration followed by the interview. In his interview he expressed how important it is for FoodPRO to support men and women who serve our country. Helping those who serve our country comes easy to him as he mentioned “...without those who do what they do to serve and protect this country, we don’t have jobs”.
