Sharon Brown, City of San Antonio Municipal Courts, as Caryl Hill (far left), Texas Committee ESGR San Antonio Chair, observes during a small ceremony on August 5, 2014 in downtown San Antonio. Staff Sgt. Ryan McFarland, an employee of the city department and an Air Force Reservist with the 26th Aerial Port Squadron, nominated Capt. Brown and Chief Rumaldo Abonce for the ESGR honor. The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support Citizen Warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families and granting leaves of absence if needed. Sergeant McFarland is currently deployed to Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan. (U.S. Air Force photo/Maj. Tim Wade)
