The ESGR has a national and local organizational structure to support our mission. OKESGR
is organized to support members of the Army Reserve, Oklahoma Army National Guard, Oklahoma Air National Guard, Navy, Airforce,
Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Reserve.
OKESGR works directly with Oklahoma employers, their employees, and communities to facilitate
an understanding of, and appreciation for, the important role our reserve soldiers, sailors, marines, coast guardsmen, and
airmen occupy in our national defense.
We encourage and assist employee participation in National Guard and Reserve training programs
and active military duty without civilian job impediments of any kind, to include encouraging voluntary compliance with
federal and state statutes governing employment and reemployment rights of Reserve component members.
The OKESGR also assists in preventing, resolving or reducing employer and/or employee
problems and misunderstandings that result from National Guard or Reserve membership, training or duty requirements through
information services and information mediation. Further, we educate Guard and Reserve members regarding their obligations
and responsibilities to employers.
OKESGR has a duty to promote civilian and military personnel practices that encourage membership
in the National Guard and Reserve.
