Neil, Dymott, Frank, McFall, Trexler, McCabe & Hudson APLC was honored by the Department of Defense as one of the 15 recipients of the 2015 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award. The Freedom Award is the highest honor the department gives to employers for support of National Guard and Reserve employees. During the Pentagon ceremony on August 21, 2015 Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work lauded the recipients for their support, saying their sacrifices helped make the military contributions by members of the National Guard and Reserve possible.

“These extraordinary contributions that [Guardsmen and Reservists] have provided could not have been made without the extraordinary support from the group of civilians and citizens, business leaders and employers, who have really allowed them to not be worried about coming back to a job."

The 2015 recipients were selected from 2,960 nominations received from Guardsmen and Reservists for going far beyond what the Federal law requires to support their military employees. The Freedom Award was instituted in 1996 under the auspices of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve to recognize exceptional support from the employer community. In the years since, 205 employers have been honored with the award.

The department unveiled a permanent display at the Pentagon honoring all past and present recipients of the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award.
