distributors, package stores, restaurants, bars, and other retail sales outlets in every state – and provide millions of jobs throughout the country.

Support Employers of Reservists and National Guardsmen

Employers have borne a heavy burden since 9/11 as our Reserve forces transitioned from a Strategic Reserve model to an Operational Reserve.  One weekend a month and two weeks a year has yielded to repeated mobilizations and long deployments.  Since 2001,
“the U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) has mobilized more than 280,000 soldiers, while the Army National Guard (ARNG) has mobilized almost twice that number, more than 525,000 soldiers.”[1]  An overlooked cost has fallen
on employers and colleagues, who frequently shoulder additional work.  As Co-Chairs of the National Guard and Reserve Caucus, we invite you to co-sponsor
H.R. 801, the Reserve Component Employer Incentive, Compensation, and Relief Act of 2019.  This will ease employers’ burden and incentivize hiring of Reservist and National Guardsmen.
