An ESGR Patriot Award is the highest honor bestowed upon an individual supervisor for support to service members of the National Guard and Reserve. Jeff Dietrich, Loan Program Manager at NWRPC, nominated Mr. Schuster for the award in 2015 for unmatched flexibility and consideration in support of Mr. Dietrich’s service in the Army Reserve. The Northwest Regional Planning Commission was also recognized for its commitment in upholding the Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve.

The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support Citizen Warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting leaves of absence if needed.

The Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve that NWRPC makes pledges that the organization will fully recognize, honor, and comply with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA); as well as equipping managers and supervisors with knowledge and tools to support Guard and Reserve members, while fully recognizing and supporting our country’s Service members and their families in peace, in crisis, and in war.
