Patriot Award

Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense office, announced that Donnie Lee (right), President of Lee Electrical Contractors in Aberdeen, was honored with a Patriot Award in recognition of extraordinary support of Specialist Kevin Brown (center) of the US Army Reserve.

The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees that have answered their nation’s call to duty. Lee was nominated by Brown for being highly encouraging of his effort to serve his country. Brown is a Groundsman for Lee Electrical and a Movement Control Specialist in the Reserves. ESGR volunteer Frank Blalock (left) assisted with the presentation.
