To the many employers not listed here who also support their citizen warriors, we thank you as well. Please contact us so that we can present you with your own employer Statement of Support.

(We apologize if you have received an award and were not listed here; some awards arrived after the press deadline for this edition. If you are listed here and have not received an award, then please know that presentation of your award is pending.)

Those of you who have hired our citizen service members know the value of employing a member of the Guard, Reserve or veteran, and many of you have quickly stated that you would hire more if you had the vacancies.  Know that as employers of our citizen service members and other veterans, you are also “serving” in your own way! We know that while you gain from a veteran's training and service, you must also remain flexible when the call comes for them to serve. We recognize that sacrifice that you also face, and we know that without your support, their service would not be possible.

For those of you who have not yet hired a veteran, please keep our American Heroes in mind when you are hiring. In addition to our Guard and Reserve members, thousands of our Active Armed Forces veterans will be entering the civilian workforce each year for the next several years. Be sure to take advantage of their talents, experience, and the many transferable skills that can directly support your company and its bottom line!

Vermont ESGR needs volunteers!  ESGR in every state operates with a dedicated group of volunteers supported by a small full-time staff. We are always looking for volunteers statewide, but primarily in the “4 corners” of the state; St. Albans, St. Johnsbury/NEK, Brattleboro, and Bennington/Rutland. If you would like to make a difference, but stay fairly close to home and carry a minimal workload of only a few hours a month, please contact us at: 802-338-4187 to find out more about being an ESGR Volunteer!

Have jobs for Guard/Reserve members and other veterans?  You can post them on and also the Veterans Employment Center at:

As always, you can reach us with questions or to obtain an employer Statement of Support at:
