Miguel Joubert has since returned to work and the Army sent the division a beautifully framed certificate of appreciation for outstanding support to the Army during Operations Noble Eagle and Enduring Freedom as well as a letter from his commanding general.

I want to personally thank you for your sacrifice on behalf of the United States of America. The mobilization of a valued employee to active duty requires a sacrifice that many employers do not understand. The hardship you endure in “keeping America running” without your citizen-soldier exhibits the highest degree of patriotism and makes our Nation the greatest in the world.
When challenged by the forces of evil, America responded. As long as our soldiers are trained and ready, we ensure the security of our homes and freedom from tyranny worldwide. Your continued support of citizen-soldiers is vital to that effort.
In my travels throughout our country, many employers tell me how honored they are to support the Guardsmen and Reservists in their companies during this difficult and challenging time. Any soldier will tell you that kind of support from the “home front” is crucial to mission accomplishment.
Please understand that your contribution and that of your employee have been a key part of the Army’s successful fight in the Global War on Terrorism. Again, please accept my heartfelt thanks for what you do for the Army and your country.
Larry R. Ellis
General US Army
