The pandemic upended not only customers’ and employees’ business routines but, for many LMIers, their sense of safety, security, and connectedness with colleagues. We recognized early on that helping the country overcome COVID-19 would take many forms—first and foremost, taking care of each other.
“The best support I’ve ever had.”
In addition to LMI’s extensive COVID-19-related customer support, several LMIers have contributed to pandemic response efforts in other capacities. This includes project manager and U.S. Army Reserve engineer officer Lt. Col. Ed Sherman and analyst Daniel Glass, whose unit of the Virginia National Guard was activated in March.
Glass felt so supported by his leadership—vice president Christen Smith, director of national security operations Brian Martin, and project manager Dezarae Strong—that he nominated them for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Patriot Award. “I wanted to take a moment to do what I could to recognize you guys for being the best support I’ve ever had, especially during [the pandemic],” said Glass, who surprised his leaders with an award presentation over Zoom.
