EFACEC plant manager Carlos Carvalho was honored by the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve after one of his employees nominated him.

Warrant Officer Gil Sheppard, who is currently out of the country, nominated Carvalho for the honor. Sheppard works with final assembly of shell transformers at EFACEC’s Rincon plant.

In his nomination, Sheppard said Carvalho has continuously supported his military obligations with the Georgia Army National Guard.

“During my employment with EFACEC, I have completed a one-year deployment to Kosovo and numerous military education requirements without repercussion,” Sheppard said. “The support from my supervisor and company always allows me to focus completely on my military mission without incident.”

The ESGR recognizes employers whose personnel policies support employee participation in the Guard and Reserve. Nearly half of the U.S. military component is in the Guard and Reserves ranks, with many of them holding civilian jobs in addition to their military duties. ESGR also informs service members and their civilian employers of their rights and responsibilities under the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act.
