Boss Lift

Group in front of PlaneToday is Veterans Day and on behalf of TASC and our management team and staff I want to thank veterans who have done their part to protect our freedom and independence. In July, I was honored to sign an “Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Statement of Support.” The Statement aims to increase employer support and encourages employers to act as advocates for employee participation in the military. Supportive employers are vital to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units.

In August, along with other supportive employers from southeast Wisconsin, I participated in “Boss Lift,” an air refueling mission with ESGR and the 128th Air Refueling Wing. What a great opportunity! We visited military installations to see, firsthand, the quality of training and leadership activities that our uniformed employees receive.DSC09036

As someone with no military background, the Boss Lift event showed me firsthand some of what our soldiers do when they are away from their civilian jobs, and helped me better understand our troops who are coming home and rejoining the workforce. As an employer, it made me even prouder to do our part.

Wisconsin National Guard Command Sgt. Maj. Bradley Shields from Madison, Wisconsin, said events like Boss Lift are important. “The support employers provide is critical to our success,” Shields said. “Without it, our Soldiers could not support our state and country like they do.”

At TASC we will continue to do whatever we can do to support our service members, help returning veterans transition into civilian jobs, and show our appreciation for what our service members do.

Happy Veterans Day.
