The Patriot Award is presented through the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), an office of the U.S. Department of Defense that works to promote cooperation between reservists and civilian employers. The Patriot Award is one of several awards given by the ESGR to employers that do an outstanding job supporting their military personnel. Reservists can nominate individual supervisors for the Patriot Award as a way to recognize their support. 

The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support Citizen Warriors through a wide range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting leaves of absence if needed. The award was presented onsite by Ruby Butler DeMesme, former United States Assistant Secretary of the Air Force.
