ST. JOHN'S FREEDOM AWARD RECIPIENT
The names of the 2011 Department of Defense Freedom Award recipients have been announced and St. John’s Lutheran Church of Yankton, South Dakota is one of 15 recipients of this year’s award! The Freedom Award is the DoD’s highest recognition given to employers for exceptional support of their employees serving in the Guard and Reserve. St. John’s Lutheran Church stood out among a field of 4,049 nominations submitted by Guard and Reserve service members or their families.
This is a great honor for St. John’s Lutheran Church. The 2011 honorees were recognized in Washington, D.C. at the 16th annual Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award Ceremony on September 22, 2011.
