NEBRASKA CITY – The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve presented Otoe County Attorney David Partsch with its patriot award Wednesday for his support of Deputy County Attorney Sarah Gyhra’s military service.
Gyhra, who joined the prosecutor’s office last fall and has been working primarily with the juvenile court, is training for 13 weeks with the Judge Advocate General Corps to qualify as a military attorney.
Partsch said her military training will also benefit the county attorney’s office.
Partsch: “We definitely miss her while she is gone here. It puts some extra caseload on the remaining two attorneys here in the office, myself and Mr. Palmtag, but, again we’re excited to cover for her because we know in the long term, big picture this training and experience is going to be great for the county when she comes back.”
Bruce Wood and Randy Amundson of the ESGR were joined Police Sgt. and Army Reservist Chris Richardson in presenting the award.
