DeLight Breidegam, Chairman, and Sally Miksiewicz, CEO of East Penn were honored in April 2013 with the Patriot Award from the Office of the Secretary of Defense ESGR (Employee Support of The Guard and Reserve). This award recognizes the contribution of employers to the national security and protecting liberty and freedom by supporting employee participation in America’s National Guard and Reserve Force. Recipients of the award are nominated by employees who serve in the military while working within their organization.
The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support Citizen Warriors through a wide-range of accommodating measures by the employer. Our Nation relies heavily on Guard and Reserve service members, and employer support enhances retention rates in the Armed Forces and strengthens our national security.
East Penn and its employees have a long history of supporting the ESGR throughout the years. The company takes great pride in the men and woman who serve our country while working at East Penn.
