Rhea County Sheriff Mike Neal received the Patriot Award today from the ESGR (Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve). The Patriot Award is awarded to supervisors or employers that go above and beyond for National Guard or Reserve Component Soldiers currently serving in our nation’s military. This is the second time Sheriff Neal received the Patriot Award and he currently employs three National Guard soldiers who all happen to be military police officers.
