Boss Day welcomes employers

Senior Master Sgt. Todd Wadkins, 932nd Maintenance Group, walks away from the unit's C-40 as he welcomes his employer and other civilian bosses at the 2018 "Boss Day" held October 13, 2018 at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. Wadkins has helped the public affairs shop with multiple Boss Day projects, both in his previous job with safety, and now maintenance. Reservists are reminded there are two ways they can recognize a civilian supervisor or employer for their positive support of the reservist's military service: 1) The Patriot Award – This award recognizes supervisors and bosses nominated by a Guardsman or Reservist employee for support provided directly to the nominator. It is all accomplished easily online at this site: 2) Another possible award is the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award – This award is the highest recognition given by the U.S. Government to employers for their outstanding support of employees serving in the Guard and Reserve. Each year, Guard and Reserve employees, or a family member acting on their behalf, have the opportunity to nominate their employer for the Employer Support Freedom Award. Nominate your employer during nomination season (October 1-December 31 each year) by logging on to and clicking Nominate Employer at the top of the page. This is the final Boss Day for Wadkins before his retirement. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lt. Col. Stan Paregien)
