ESGR in the News


FLINT, Mich - Congratulations to Police Chief Kevin Salter of the Flint Township Police Department for receiving the ESGR Patriot Award. Salter was nominated by Maj. John Roland.

Roland said, "I was recently activated from traditional National Guard status to Federal Active Duty for the length of one year. My National Guard unit only gave me four days’ notice of my activation and to leave my civilian employer for a year. My employer not only understood my situation, but they supported me throughout my activation. They called to check up on me and to see if my family needed anything. When I returned from my activation, my employer allowed me to roll over my unused vacation hours into the next year (which is an exception to the contract), instead of using it prior to the end of the calendar year. My employer has also hired multiple National Guard members and supports all of us."

During this event, Chief Salter also signed the ESGR Statement of Support.

Thank you to Chief Salter and the Flint Township Police Department for supporting our Service Members. Helping present the award is Lt Brad Wargler. Representing ESGR was East Area Chair Paul DeSander.
