Oregon Air National Guard member thanks civilian employer for support with ESGR award

WILSONVILLE, ORE. -- Oregon Air National Guard Lt. Mark Gibson, of the 123 Weather Flight, Portland Air National Guard Base, presents Wilsonville Mayor Tim Knapp, with the ESGR Patriot Award at the Wilsonville City Hall, May 3. Gibson nominated the city of Knapp and the City of Wilsonville for supporting Gibson's deployment to Haiti in January 2010, following the devastating earthquake there. Gibson, who works for the city of Wilsonville as a water quality analyst in his civilian job, spent about 30 days at the Port-au-Prince Airport with four other Airmen from his unit setting up a weather station as part of a joint-force rescue and recovery effort, then participated in the relief and recovery effort themselves.
