Statement Of Support For the Guard and Reserve
SPENCER, IOWA -- The ESGR Area 3 recently sponsored a “SoS”: Statement of Support for Guard and Reserve and a Proclamation signing on Monday, September 8th at the Clay County Regional Event Center, during Veterans Day ceremony at the Clay County Fair located in Spencer, Iowa.
A Statement of Support “SoS” is a document simply acknowledging employer support to military members within the workplace and community. Employers and Elected Officials participated in the “SoS” signing at 11:00 A.M. at the Regional Event Center located on the Clay County Fair grounds.
The State of Iowa “ESGR Week Proclamation” was announced by Governor Chet Culver. City and County government agencies had the opportunity to sign a proclamation in support of Governor Culver’s and the State of Iowa’s proclamation. This event followed the SoS signing.
Without employer support, men and women of the Guard and Reserve who serve voluntarily and respond to their community and their country in time of need, would not be able to fulfill their military mission which provides a safe country to live in and freedom for all Americans now and into the future.
A total of 18 employers in ESGR Area 3 signed Statements of Support.
