Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense
agency, announced Judy Marks, President and CEO, Siemens Government

This Statement of Support reaffirms that Siemens joins other employers in
pledging:

  *We fully recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment
    and Re-Employment Rights Act (USERRA).
  *Our managers and supervisors will have the tools they need to effectively
    manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
  *We appreciate the values, leadership and unique skills service members
    bring to the workforce and will encourage opportunities to hire Guardsmen,
    Reservists and Veterans.
  *We will continually recognize and support our country’s service members
    and their families in peace, in crises and in war.

"Supportive employers like Siemens are critical to maintaining the readiness
and strength of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units and allow Guardsmen and
Reservists the opportunity to serve our country more effectively and with
greater peace of mind," said James Rebholz, ESGR National Chair. "By signing
this Statement of Support, Siemens sends a clear message they stand committed
