Treatment of Reservists

Patrice forwarded the following information about how one company is treating our military reserves well, which is not universal. 

Have you seen the reports about how Sears
is treating its reservist employees who are called up
?
By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and
available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a
big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being
called up…Sears is voluntarily paying the difference
in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including
medical insurance and bonus programs, for all called
up reservist employees for up to two years. I submit
that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and
should be recognized for its contribution.
Suggest we all shop at Sears, and be sure to find a
manager to tell them why we are there so the company
gets the positive reinforcement it well deserves. Pass
it on.
So I, decided to check it out before I sent it
forward. I sent the following email to the Sears
Customer Service Department:

I received this email and I would like to know if it
is true. If it is, the Internet may have just become
one very good source of advertisement for your store.
I know I would go out of my way to buy products from
Sears instead of another store for a like item even if
it was cheaper at the other store.

Here is their answer to my
email……

Dear Customer:
Thank you for contacting Sears.
The information is factual. We appreciate your
positive feedback. Sears regards service to our
country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men
and women can make. We are happy to do our part to
lessen the burden they bear at this time.

Please pass this on to all your friends, Sears needs
to be recognized for this outstanding contribution and
we need to show them as Americans, we do appreciate
what they are doing for our military!!!!!!!!!!!
