While the American people take one day a year to celebrate the lives and sacrifices of veterans, one U.S. group has veteran interests as a daily focus.

The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve is a U.S. agency that has assisted veterans with employment needs since 1972, contributing over 230,000 service hours last year alone.  In the 2012 fiscal year, the ESRG influenced over 160,000 employers and approximately 480,000 service members.

Bart Davis, state chairman for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, talks about the purpose of the group, his experience of over 20 years working with the ESGR and how the group is involved not only with veterans, but with the entire community.
