Employer support to Hawaii National Guardsmen is a key part of our success. Traditional Soldiers and Airmen know the value of selfless service, but the employers also sacrifice as their full time employees deploy to foreign countries, support our State during times of emergency or sometimes, attend military schools for extended periods of time. The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, or ESGR, recognizes these exceptional employers, like KHON, with the Patriot Award. Cpl. Aven Santiago nominated KHON’s Rob DeMello for his support. Santiago recently completed a 30-day State Active Duty mission in support of Hawaii County and will soon be deploying to Kosovo with the 29th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.
