The Department of Defense's Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) honored Vantage Chairman and Founder Henry Lewis on April 10, 2015 for extraordinary support of employees who serve in the Massachusetts National Guard and Reserve. The Patriot Award recognizes the efforts made by individual supervisors or employers to support Citizen Warriors through a wide range of measures, including flexible work schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families of military employees, and leaves of absence as needed.
