ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
Albany's MillerCoors Brewery earns an award for supporting our troops.
The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve recently awarded MillerCoors Albany the Patriot Award.
That led to an even more prestigious award, the Seven Seals Award.
Army reservist and MillerCoors employee Richard Stone nominated the plant.
He says without the company's support his deployment to Afghanistan would have been much more difficult.
"Everything they did for me helped me stay focused while I was over there. Everyone recognizes the military for what they do more so now than in the Vietnam era but nobody realizes the things that your families and employers do," said Richard Stone, Army reservist.
The Albany plant has a veterans group of nearly 100 employees.
