I am proud to receive this award just as I am proud to have the opportunity to employ such distinguished members of our nations armed services in my Congressional offices, said Green.  Over the years I have had several employees with affiliations to the armed services and they have always done as wonderful a job for me as they have in serving our country.
 
I would like to thank Rep. Green for allowing me the opportunity to serve my country while also maintaining my employment in his office, said Lpez-Garca.  More employers, especially in the private sector, need to have the flexibility so that reservists can keep their jobs while serving in the military.
