A review board comprised of military and civilian leaders selected the 30 employers from more than 3,200 nominations received earlier this year from Guardsmen, Reservists or family members. Employers named as finalists for the award distinguish themselves not only for respecting the employment and reemployment rights of Guard and Reserve members, but for actively creating opportunities to assist and support the service of both Guard and Reserve employees and their families. The Department of Defense will announce the 15 recipients of the 2012 Freedom Award early this summer.
