CatholicTV to Receive The Patriot Award as Cameraman Leaves for Iraq

On June 30th, CatholicTV will receive The Patriot Award from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve organization at the CatholicTV studios in Watertown, MA. Colonel Joseph Mercuri (retired) will present the award at 12:30PM (Eastern).

CatholicTV was nominated for the award by Dave Wilkinson a videographer and editor in our production department. Dave (a native of Danvers, MA) was recently promoted to Sergeant and recently took a leave from CatholicTV in order to serve his country in Iraq. He is a graduate of the Boston University Center of Digital Imaging Arts and functions as Truck Commander for the Army National Guard.

According to the ESGR website (Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve), employers can support Guard and Reserve employees in many ways such as “publicly acknowledging the contributions of Reserve component employees to our Nation’s defense.” Dave was recently featured on the CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day” along with actress Jessica Rey who played the part of one of the Power Rangers on the children’s show.

On his last day before leave, Dave appeared on the CatholicTV signature talk show This is the Day. His appearance is near the end of the show which can be viewed at the CatholicTV website by clicking here http://www.catholictv.com/shows/default.aspx?seriesID=72&videoID=89.
