Miller Cites Commitment and Support of Fellow Employees
(Carson City, NV; March 23, 2009)
Secretary of State Ross Miller was recognized today as a “Patriotic Employee” by the Employee Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) organization. Miller was nominated for the award by Nevada National Guard Captain David Evans of the Nevada National Guard’s 72nd Military Police Company, who is an investigator with the Secretary of State’s Securities Enforcement Division.
“An award of this nature is an honor, of course,” said Miler. “More importantly, it’s a recognition of the support Dave has from all his fellow employees in the Secretary of State’s office. We’ve seen a lot of employees step up and assume a few extra responsibilities to make Dave’s service to our country possible. They deserve recognition, and I accept this award on their behalf, and extend my thanks to all of them, as well as Dave and his entire unit. Everyone who works with Dave, in their own way and through their own service has played a role in making our state and our country a better, safer place.”
The 72nd Military Police Company of the Nevada National Guard’s most recent Iraq deployment was from November, 2006 through September, 2008. It was the unit’s second Iraq deployment, and its third deployment since September 11, 2001.
