Be thankful for employers who support military service
from The Charlotte Observer
From Raleigh's Jamie Applequist, a senior vice president of the State Employees' Credit Union and a Master Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. SECU was one of 15 employers to receive the 2011 Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award: As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, I find myself reflecting on the many things I am thankful for in life. I am approaching 20 years in the United States Air Force and soon will be eligible to retire. Retirement has not come in the way I thought it would. After seven years of active duty, I made a decision not to re-enlist. I knew I wanted to stay connected to the military, though, and decided there was no better way to do so than commit to the Air Force Reserves.
