Statements of Support (SOS). By signing a SOS for the Guard and Reserve, employers and political leaders demonstrate their support for their Guard and Reserve employees, their commitment to military service, and their resolve to bolster the defense of the United States. Our Governor Bobby Jindal signed a Statement of Support (SOS) on 14 October 2008 in support of the Guard and Reserve. Your employer can do so as well. Statements of support can be located on the ESGR web site at http://www.esgr.org/newforms.asp?p=sos
