Welcome to the Iowa ESGR website. Our Iowa team is comprised of approximately 110 dedicated volunteers and 3 full-time staff that is prepared to engage, inform, and support employers and reserve component members throughout the state. Iowa has a proud history of outstanding employer support for our reserve component members and today’s team continues that tradition through a strong emphasis on “prevention through education”. Our Iowa team places continuous effort on our military and employer outreach programs to ensure that all stakeholders know and understand their respective obligations under the USERRA law.
The Iowa team has found that a focus on visibility and awareness of what Iowa ESGR has to offer is a key element of our prevention approach. “We are a resource” is at the core of our message to our Iowa employers and reserve component members.
We welcome you to explore our website and invite you to contact us should you have any questions. Our mission is to assist both employers and reserve component members equally. We also welcome anyone interested in volunteering with the Iowa ESGR.

WASHINGTON -Fifty years ago, the United States military began to fill its ranks solely with brave Americans who freely choose to defend our republic. Ever since the draft ended on July 1, 1973, Americans have joined our military out of conviction, not compulsion. Over the years, the members of our All-Volunteer Force have been motivated by patriotism, pride, and principle—by the desire to be a part of something bigger than themselves, and by their love for our exceptional nation.
