Across our country, these dedicated citizen-soldiers are answering the call to serve. During National Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Week, we honor the vital contributions of members of our Guard and Reserve, and we express our gratitude for the support shown to them by their employers. In every generation, America has turned to the National Guard and Reserve to help respond to natural disasters, secure our homeland, and defend our liberty. Today, National Guard and Reserve personnel are serving on the front lines of freedom in the war on terror, and they have provided vital relief to our citizens affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Balancing the demands of their families, civilian careers, and military assignments, members of our Guard and Reserve demonstrate personal courage, love of country, and a commitment to duty that inspires all Americans. Employers play a critical role in helping the men and women of the National Guard and Reserve carry out their mission. In offices, schools, hospitals, and other workplaces, employers provide time off, pay, health-care benefits, and job security to their Guard and Reserve employees. These patriotic efforts allow our men and women in uniform to focus on their military assignments and help strengthen our country. Americans are grateful to these employers for putting the needs of our citizens and our country’s safety and security first. As we continue to fight terrorism and advance peace around the world, Americans stand strongly and proudly behind the men and women of the National Guard and Reserve, and we express our appreciation for the commitment of their employers.

BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim October 16 through October 22, 2005, as National Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Week. I encourage all Americans to join me in expressing our thanks to members of our National Guard and Reserve and their civilian employers for their patriotism and sacrifices on behalf of our Nation. I also call upon State and local officials, private organizations, businesses, and all military commanders to observe this week with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

                Proclamation 7947 of October 14, 2005

                
National Employer Support of the Guard and 
                Reserve Week, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                In times of crisis, our Nation depends on the courage 
                and determination of the members of our National Guard 
                and Reserve. Across our country, these dedicated 
                citizen-soldiers are answering the call to serve. 
                During National Employer Support of the Guard and 
                Reserve Week, we honor the vital contributions of 
                members of our Guard and Reserve, and we express our 
                gratitude for the support shown to them by their 
                employers.

                In every generation, America has turned to the National 
                Guard and Reserve to help respond to natural disasters, 
                secure our homeland, and defend our liberty. Today, 
                National Guard and Reserve personnel are serving on the 
                front lines of freedom in the war on terror, and they 
                have provided vital relief to our citizens affected by 
                Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Balancing the demands of 
                their families, civilian careers, and military 
                assignments, members of our Guard and Reserve 
                demonstrate personal courage, love of country, and a 
                commitment to duty that inspires all Americans.

                Employers play a critical role in helping the men and 
                women of the National Guard and Reserve carry out their 
                mission. In offices, schools, hospitals, and other 
                workplaces, employers provide time off, pay, health-
                care benefits, and job security to their Guard and 
                Reserve employees. These patriotic efforts allow our 
                men and women in uniform to focus on their military 
                assignments and help strengthen our country. Americans 
                are grateful to these employers for putting the needs 
                of our citizens and our country's safety and security 
                first.

                As we continue to fight terrorism and advance peace 
                around the world, Americans stand strongly and proudly 
                behind the men and women of the National Guard and 
                Reserve, and we express our appreciation for the 
                commitment of their employers.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim October 16 through October 
                22, 2005, as National Employer Support of the Guard and 
                Reserve Week. I encourage all Americans to join me in 
                expressing our thanks to members of our National Guard 
                and Reserve and their civilian employers for their 
                patriotism and sacrifices on behalf of our Nation. I 
                also call upon State and local officials, private 
                organizations, businesses, and all military commanders 
                to observe this week with appropriate ceremonies and 
                activities.
