Deerfield Beach, FL, 2 May, 2016 – The Office of the Secretary of Defense Employer Support to the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) has awarded a certificate of appreciation to Tim Van Kirk, CEO of Van Kirk & Sons Pools, Inc. for his outstanding support of National Guardsmen and Reservists employed by Van Kirk pools.
Supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the Nation’s National Guard and Reserve units. This certificate is given to employers who vigorously promote the values of America’s National Guard and Reserve Force by supporting their employees as they defend our Nation’s liberty. This Statement of Support recognizes supportive employers and their dedication to the values, leadership, and unique skills that service members bring to the workforce.
“Van Kirk & Sons has been like a family to me; they are truly a Patriotic Company. They have consistently supported my wife and I while I have been called away to perform my duties in the US Army Reserve. There has been no hesitation, no pressure, just 100% support when they know I am called to serve. Van Kirk’s unconditional support has been such a relief to me, it is stressful enough being away from my family, I am grateful work is not another thing to worry about while away. They actively work to show their appreciation for my service while also providing support to patriotic organizations such as Wounded Warrior Project. They are a truly great company to work for,” said Captain Donald Cesarone, United States Army Reservist, and Van Kirk & Son’s employee.
ESGR is a Department of Defense agency established in 1972. The mission of ESGR is to gain and maintain employer support for Guard and Reserve service by recognizing outstanding support, increasing awareness of the law, and resolving conflicts through mediation.
