Alva Wallis of Southeast Physician Services was recognized with a Patriotic Employer Award from the U.S. Department of Defense for contributing to national security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America’s National Guard and Reserve Force. Employer support enhances retention rates in the Armed Forces and, in the end, strengthens our national security.
The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve grants a series of Department of Defense awards to recognize employers who support their Guard and Reserve employees. Recognizing supportive employers is vital to ESGR's mission. ESGR's 54 State Committees actively promote awards as a key element in furthering employer support, while strengthening relationships between service members and employers. These Department of Defense awards honor the sacrifices made by employers year after year.
