By supporting your citizen service member-employee, you too have served, ensuring their ability to perform their military duties!


We apologize if you have received an award and were not listed here; some awards arrived after the press deadline for this edition. If you are listed here and have not received an award, then please know that presentation of your award is pending.


Are You Prepared?? Many of you know best that since Vermont’s 86th Brigade’s alignment with the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, NY, their training tempo has greatly increased.  Employers must be prepared once again to support these citizen soldiers as they prepare and train for their next deployment in FY-2021; we ask that you also keep in mind our military spouses who will become a “single parent” while their partner is away.  And as our Vermont Air National Guard “Green Mountain Boys” refit for the full contingent of F-35 fighter aircraft, these airmen will also need additional training time.

Vermont ESGR needs volunteers!  We need volunteers, especially in the “four corners” of the state; St. Albans, St. Johnsbury/NEK, Brattleboro, and Bennington/Rutland. If you would like to serve your country, but stay fairly close to home and work just a few hours a month, please contact us to find out more about becoming an ESGR Volunteer!
