This is something to be proud of.
City of Laredo Mayor Raul G. Salinas welcomed Lupita Zepeda of AT&T, Adolfo Popo Gonzalez, Gabriel Lopez, Veteran’s Liaison, current soldiers and members of the Family Support group, all to help proclaim (attached) the week Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Week in Laredo. Many local businesses and organizations, including the City of Laredo, Webb County, the school districts, and even Webb County, hold positions for employees who are deployed into active duty for the National Guard or Reserves. Some, like the City of Laredo, offer differential pay to the employee, and others offer 100% pay, so that families do not suffer when the employee is deployed. AT&T offers calling cards to soldiers and their families to make it easier to stay in touch.
