Minnesota Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) State Chairman Paul Monteen recognized the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), along with 32 other outstanding employers of Minnesota National Guard and Reserve members, at the Minnesota ESGR Annual Employer Support Awards Banquet May 20 in Bloomington. The “Above and Beyond” Award is given in limited numbers by state and territory ESGR committees and recognizes employers at the state and local level who have gone beyond legal requirements for granting leave and providing support for military duty by their employees. Pictured from left are Minnesota ESGR State Chair Paul Monteen, MSgt. Thomas Mitchell, Brian Kelly, Brig. Gen. Alton “Al” G. Berry and Maj. Gen. Richard C. Nash. The nominee is from Roseville and the nominator is from Stillwater. Both are employees at MnDOT. The nomination is for the support the nominee provided to the nominator while he performed his military obligations. (Submitted photo)
