Maverick Transportation Honored by Department of Defense
The Arkansas Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), an agency of the Department of Defense, recently presented Morgan Forrest, Fleet Manager at Maverick Transportation LLC, with the Patriot Award. Maverick and Forrest received this award in recognition of extraordinary support of the company’s employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve.
According to Richard Green, ESGR Arkansas Program Specialist, “The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them, have answered their nation’s call to serve. Morgan Forrest was nominated for being highly supportive of the National Guard and Reserve Service by his Reserve Component Employees. Supportive supervisors are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s National Guard and Reserve units.”
“I feel very honored to have been nominated for this award on behalf of Maverick,” said Forrest at the award’s presentation. “Through the years, we have had a large number of professional drivers who were in the National Guard and we have always been very supportive in their service to our country.”
ESGR provides education, consultation, and if necessary mediation for employers of Guard and Reserve employees. More information about ESGR Employer Outreach Programs and volunteer opportunities can be found at www.esgr.mil, or by calling Richard Green at (501) 212-4096.
