Marysville businessman honored for supporting military

MARYSVILLE – Bristol Alliance of Companies General Manager Tom Eldsmoe was presented with a Patriot Award recently at his office in recognition of overall support of veterans and his employees serving in the U.S. Army Reserves. Eldsmoe was nominated by Cpt. Whittier J. Campbell, who serves with the 903rd FEST-A Los Alamios, CA. Campbell was flown up from his base to Marysville by the company for the presentation.

“The Patriot Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide outstanding patriotic support and cooperation to their employees, who like the citizen warriors before them have answered their nation’s call to serve,” said John Van Dalen of the Washington Employer Support of the Guard Reserve.

The company president and CEO also flew down from Anchorage, Alaska, to be at the presentation. Bristol started in 1994 and provides services including engineering; civil and vertical construction; environmental remediation; fuel systems; range and unexploded ordnance response services; electrical and telecommunications services; and demolition and site preparation services throughout the U.S., its territories, and select international locations., striving to improve quality of life in rural Alaska’s most unpredictable environments. ESGR, a Department of Defense program, seeks to foster a culture in which all employers support the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve.
