Thirty-eight Alabama companies are among the nominees for the Employer Support Freedom Award, the highest recognition given by the Department of Defense to employers supporting the National Guard and Reserves.

The 38 nominees are among 2,899 submitted nationwide. Up to 15 award recipients will be announced during summer ceremonies in Washington, D.C.

"Every year, these nominations demonstrate the strength of our employers' commitment to supporting our Guardsmen and Reservists," said Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve National Chair James G. Rebholz. "We applaud all the National Guard and Reserve Service members who took the time to tell the DOD why their employers are exceptional, and we are grateful to the 2013 nominees for providing our citizen warriors with the assistance and encouragement they rely on while answering the call to duty."

Nominations are submitted by Guard and Reserve Service members, or their families, in recognition of a company's support of military personnel.
