Roland E. Berg, president of Logis-Tech Inc. in Manassas, was named one of five 2005 recipients in Virginia of the Above and Beyond Award of Employers Supporting the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).

Especially in recent years, when Guard and reserve elements have been deployed extensively in Afghanistan and Iraq, employers have played prominent roles in assisting individuals called to active duty and their families left at home.
