Micro Key President Lifted to New Heights
Wayne Torrens, president of Micro Key Software, Kissimmee, Fla., along with 34 other employers flew on the aircraft. The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserveâ€™s program, operated by the Department of Defense, allows employers of reservists to see the type of training and activities their employees undergo.
Participants stayed overnight in bachelor officersâ€™ housing at Oceana Air Station. Employers sat in on a briefing and took a trip to the assault craft unit four headquarters. The group also boarded the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier the USS Harry Truman.
The trip culminated in a dinner with senior military officials, at which Torrens received the Patriot award for support of the guard and reserves on behalf of the Department of Defense.
