Gov. Dennis Daugaard demonstrated his support of employers who employ National Guard and Reserve members by signing a proclamation announcing Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Week in South Dakota Aug. 16-22. The proclamation coincides with President Barack Obama’s national proclamation announcing ESGR Week.
The proclamation recognizes employers who provide critical support to members of the National Guard and Reserve; allowing citizen warriors to serve whenever the nation calls, often foregoing financial gain and making sacrifices in the process.
ESGR is a Department of Defense agency that works to develop and promote a culture in which all American employers support and value the military service of their employees.
