September 23, 2021 – Edison, New Jersey – September 21st, 2021, the President of the State Guard and Reserve Employer Support (ESGR), Mr. Mike Ferrero, presented the New York Shipping Association (NYSA) with the Seven Seals Award in recognition of the recruitment program of NYSA’s current veterans in the marine industry.

“It is an honor to once again receive this recognition, which stems from the joint recruitment efforts of the NYSA and the International Longshoremen’s Association,” said John Nardi, President of NYSA.

“The International Longshoremen’s Association honors the New York Shipping Association and its leader, President John Nardi, for receiving the Seven Seals in recognition of the continued hiring of Veterans,” said the ILA President, Harold J.

Price of the Seven Seals

The Seven Seals Award is the broadest and most inclusive award awarded by the Guardian and Reserve Employer Support (ESGR) and is presented at the discretion of the President of the State or by the senior leadership of the ESGR. The Seven Seals Award is given in recognition of a significant individual or organizational achievement, initiative or support that promotes and supports the ESGR mission.

Support from the guard and reserve employer

The ESGR, a Department of Defense program, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between service members of the Reserve Component and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from the military engagement of an employee. ESGR is supported by a network of nearly 3,300 volunteers in 54 committees located in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam-CNMI (Community of the Northern Mariana Islands), Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Volunteers, drawn from small business and industry, government, education and past military service, bring a wealth of experience to assist employers, military personnel and their families. In conjunction with ESGR headquarters staff and a small group of support staff for each state committee, volunteers work to promote and enhance employer support for military service in the Guard and Reserve.

ESGR has served our country for over 45 years, fostering a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of National Guard and Reserve members in the United States. These citizen warriors could not defend and protect us at home and abroad without the continued promise of meaningful civilian employment for themselves and their families. ESGR continued to adapt to meet the needs of Reserve Component members, their families, and U.S. employers by partnering with a network of other national, state, and local organizations and professional organizations. Together we all serve!
