Jim Lindsey honored by Department of Defense and Arkansas National Guard ~ Former Razorback and NFL stand out receives Seven Seals and Diamond Awards

CAMP JOSEPH T. ROBINSON, Ark. Former University of Arkansas and National Football League stand out Jim Lindsey was recognized for his support of the Arkansas National Guard, and the U.S. Army Reserves, at a Maumelle luncheon Oct. 14, 2009.

The Arkansas Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), an agency of the Department of Defense, honored the owner of Lindsey Management with a Seven Seals Award in recognition of his support of the ESGR mission. The Award was presented by Rich Green, ESGR Arkansas Program Specialist, at a noon event held at The Links development in Maumelle.

Brig. Gen. Richard Swan, chief of the joint staff of the Arkansas National Guard, then presented Lindsey with the Arkansas National Guard Diamond Award for his support of, and "remarkable" service to, the Guard. Swan also presented the Arkansas First Award to Col. (Ret.) Gary Meeks, David Wolski and Jini Wolski of Lindsey Management. The Diamond and Arkansas First are two of the highest civilian awards given by the Arkansas National Guard.

According to Green, the Seven Seals Award was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide "significant achievement, initiative or support that promotes and supports the ESGR mission." Lindsey also signed a Department of Defense Statement of Support confirming his continued recognition and support of service members and their Families in peace, crisis and war, said Green.

Jim Lindsey was an All American football player on the 1964 University of Arkansas national championship team, and played for the Minnesota Vikings in the National Football League. He served six years in the Arkansas and Minnesota National Guards.
