Benefits for employee in Iraq
We have only one employee who has been deployed to Iraq. His name is Shane, he is in hs mid-20's, and has a wife a 2 year old daughter. He is in the National Guard. To show our appreciation and support we are continuing to pay the difference between his salary and his military pay. Out of this he pays his portion of medical insurance for his wife and child, who are on COBRA, so it is not out of pocket. We send him boxes of goodies, and email him regularly. We provide a support system for his wife, who knows she can call upon any number of employees if she needs help. Do any of you have employees in the military for whom you do something special? If so, I'd love to know. Thanks in advance.
