Brief: Hovensa, TSA Nominated for Freedom Award

March 20, 2009 — Two St. Croix employers have been nominated for the 2009 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the Pentagon announced this week.
The award is the U.S. government's highest recognition of employers for exceptional support of their employees serving in the National Guard and Reserve. Only members of the Guard and Reserve or their family members are eligible to nominate their employers for the award.
The Transportation Security Authority of Christiansted and Hovensa, LLC, were nominated by employees who belong to either the Guard or Reserve.
More than 3,200 National Guard and Reserve members from across the country nominated their employers for their outstanding support. Many employers, for example, provided continued benefits, differential pay, family assistance and additional support.
A national selection board made up of senior defense officials and business leaders will select up to 15 recipients for this year's award. The Department of Defense will announce the 2009 Freedom Award recipients this summer.
Further information about the award can be obtained by visiting the Freedom Award website.
