I’m writing to you in my role as the regional vice chair for the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).

As we see more and more deployments, we are seeing more and more problems develop. One of the biggest problems for our small employers is losing key employees. But there is help.

If a critical worker has been called to military duty the SBA can help. The agency offers low-interest, long-term loans up to $1.5 million for operating expenses at companies
