In particular, I want to recognize and thank Major Fred Hackett, TaxMasters’ General Counsel for 3 years, who is currently deployed in Iraq with the 36th Infantry Division Sustainment Brigade. He’s a close friend and we look forward to seeing him back home sometime this summer.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 29, 2010
Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) awarded TaxMasters, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: TAXS.OB), the IRS tax relief company, with a Pro Patria Award on Thursday, March 25, 2010. Mr. Cox and Vice President of Sales Alex Clamon attended the ESGR Awards Banquet in Austin, Texas, as part of the National Guard Association of Texas Annual Conference.
Already recognized as a Patriotic Employer by ESGR, TaxMasters was one of six public and private companies in Texas chosen for a Pro Patria Award in 2010. Each ESGR Committee presents this award annually to employers in their state or territory who have exercised leadership and implemented exceptional personnel policies that accommodate employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve.
"This award is special to us at TaxMasters," said Mr. Cox. "Thousands of volunteer citizen soldiers from all over the United States are being called on to serve their country overseas and at home during natural disasters. I see it is our obligation to make short- and long-term deployment as easy as possible on the Reservists, the Guardsmen, and their families back home. Though it’s a small sacrifice compared to that of our service members and their families, it is essential in helping them serve their country."
Mr. Cox continued, "In particular, I want to recognize and thank Major Fred Hackett, TaxMasters’ General Counsel for 3 years, who is currently deployed in Iraq with the 36th Infantry Division Sustainment Brigade. He’s a close friend and we look forward to seeing him back home sometime this summer."
TaxMasters was also recently nominated for the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award. This award is the highest recognition given by the U.S. Government to employers for their support of employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve.
Semi-finalists and finalists will be announced over the summer at http://www.freedomaward.mil and recipients will be recognized in September, 2010.
