Adonis Thompson received the Patriot Award, which is given to employers who support people in the reserve forces, for his support of Specialist Jeremy Miller.
The award winner says it was always Miller's dream to serve the Country and he just wanted to be there for him.
"I think one thing is just being supportive of those that are in the service because of the fact they're doing something that a lot of us can't do," said Thompson.
Those who work with Thompson say he is always going above and beyond what's required of him to help others.
