Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense
operational committee, announced Paul Otellini, Intel CEO, will sign a
Statement of Support for the Guard and Reserve on April 3, 2013. Otellini will
sign the pledge in a ceremony at 11:00 am at the Intel Jones Farm Conference
Center in Hillsboro, OR. Otellini will be joined by ESGR National Chair James
Rebholz and Major General Raymond Rees, The Adjutant General of Oregon.

The Statement of Support confirms Intel 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.

Intel was honored with the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award
in 2000. The Freedom Award is the nation’s highest recognition for employers
supporting Guard and Reserve members.

"Supportive employers like Intel 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, Intel sends a clear message they stand committed to
their military employees and recognize the integrity, global perspective and
proven leadership they bring to the workplace.”

“We have found that the unique skills and experience gained by our service men
and women make them an excellent fit for Intel," said Paul Otellini. "We seek
to employ the most innovative and resourceful talent available. We are proud
to support our employees who serve in the Guard and Reserves and recognize the
valuable contribution they make to the security of our nation."
