National Guard

Gov. Maggie Hassan issued a proclamation last week recognizing Sept. 22-28 as Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Week.

In the proclamation, Hassan recognized the vital contributions of the brave men and women who serve New Hampshire, and the employers statewide who support their efforts.

She also commended all employers across the state and nation who demonstrate their patriotism by providing time off, pay, healthcare benefits and job security to their Guard and Reserve employees, helping them prepare for their return to families and to civilian life.
