Dollar Thrifty was also awarded with the 2007 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award, the U.S. government's highest recognition given to outstanding employers. Mr. Paxton accepted the award from Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. James Cartwright in a ceremony held in Washington D.C. in September. Mr. Paxton also met with President George W.
