Susan Martin Receives Patriotic Employer Award from Office of Secretary of Defense
Susan Martin, senior division administrator for the Department of Medicine’s Katz Family Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, has received the Patriotic Employer Award from the Office of the Secretary of Defense – Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
The award, which she received for “Contributing to National Security and Protecting Liberty and Freedom by Supporting Employee Participating in America’s National Guard and Reserve Force,” was presented on March 13 by Tom Green, area vice chair of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
“I feel strongly about supporting individuals in the armed forces because of the work that my daughter is currently doing as active duty Navy, and that my son-in-law did during the many years that he was a member of the Florida National Guard,” said Martin. “They have made significant sacrifices in their personal lives to provide service to this country, and I greatly admire those who are willing to do this.”
Martin was nominated for the award by Flaveuse Petit-Homme, administrative assistant for the division, who is currently serving in Afghanistan.
