Fourteen local employers were treated to a UH-60 "Blackhawk" ride courtesy of the Nebraska ESGR Committee and a flight crew from the Nebraska Army National Guard.
The employers were given an ESGR overview briefing, a tour of the Army Aviation Flight Facility, and a ride on the UH-60, to thank them for their continued support of their Guard and Reserve service members and families.
MG(Ret) Zink, Nebraska Chair, thanked them for attending this event and stated the service members needed and counted upon the support employers provide for their military service. All employers thoroughly enjoyed the flight and tour and came away with a much better understanding of what's required of their employees when on military service.
