TAMPA—Florida CFO & State Fire Marshal Alex Sink today honored the Florida National Guard & Reserve in a statewide “signing of support” coordinated by the Florida Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) as part of Florida ESGR Day. CFO Sink was joined by representatives from her State Fire Marshal and Insurance Fraud law enforcement divisions, members of the Florida State Law Enforcement Chiefs Association and Colonel Cecil Laudano of the U.S. Air Force.
“We must never lose sight of the support needed for our Guard and Reservists,” said CFO Sink. “I am thankful for the Florida Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve for bringing us together today to remind our employers and our communities just how important our support is of these very brave and dedicated Floridians.”
The National Guard and Reserve represents over half of the U.S. military. More than 38,000 Florida men and women serve our state and our nation through the National Guard and Reserve.
On Tuesday, the Florida Cabinet presented the Florida Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve with a cabinet resolution recognizing their importance in assisting the Guard and Reserve, their families and employers.
