Enterprise Recognized for Active-Duty Employee Support

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Enterprise Rent-A-Car was recognized as a 2005 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award recipient, by David Janes, the national chairman for the National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) - a Department of Defense agency.

Of almost 1,500 nominations from national guardsmen and reservists, Enterprise was one of 15 companies selected for the ESGR award. The company was nominated by Robert Landry, an Army Reserve major and sales manager for Enterprise Fleet Services in Alpharetta, Ga.

The Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award was instituted in 1996 by then-Secretary of Defense William Perry.
