Shipbuilder Receives Patriotic Employer Award

Published April 19, 2022

Brian McIntyre (E25) recently received a Patriotic Employer Award from Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense program. Dominic Goga (E25), a member of the Navy Reserve who works on McIntyre’s team, nominated him for the award.

“I joined Newport News Shipbuilding in July 2021 as a Virginia-class submarine testing engineer. I had yet to figure out exactly what my schedule for the reserves would be and would need to know in order to deconflict my work at NNS. Once I received my reserve schedule, it was quite active, and Brian McIntyre was extremely supportive and flexible in allowing me to do my reserve duties,” Goga wrote in his nomination. “Brian McIntyre is a huge supporter of the military. He has encouraged and has helped me succeed in both my civilian and Navy careers.”

Walter Goodwyn, ESGR area chair, presented the award, which was signed by Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.
