Recognizing the Guard & Reserve

Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve
United States Truck Driving School – 2015

We recognize the Guard and Reserve are essential to the strength of our Nation and the well-being of our communities.

In the highest American tradition, the patriotic men and women of the Guard and Reserve serve voluntarily in an honorable and vital profession. They train to respond to their community and their country in time of need. They deserve the support of every segment of our society.

If these volunteer forces are to continue to serve our Nation, increased public understanding is required of the essential role of the Guard and Reserve in preserving our national security.

Therefore, we join other employers in the pledge that:

– We fully honor, recognize, and comply with the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Act (USERRA).

– We will provide our managers and supervisors with the tools they need to effectively manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.

– We appreciate the values, leadership, and unique skills Service members bring to the workforce and will encourage opportunities to employ Guardsmen, Reservists, transitioning Service members, and Veterans.

– We will continually recognize and support our country’s Service members and their families in peace, in crisis, and in war.
