Brothers and Sisters,
As another Veteran Day comes to an end, we will continue to remember all of you and our fellow military brothers and sisters. Thank you again for your service!
I am writing this email, with permission from the LEB, to add another member to our Local 555 Veterans Committee. It has been Jake and I for a while now and we are looking for someone who will continue helping us help veterans.
So what are we asking for in you? Well, first off we know you all have what it takes as you’ve all signed the line at some point. However, we are looking for someone who is willing to be a voice, a shoulder, a mentor, a leader, and many more things. Someone who is willing to help with legislation within our Union, Company, and yes even within Congress and the Senate. Someone who can “rally the troops” to come together and get more support for our veterans while reaching out to others. Someone who is willing to help coordinate events. Someone who is willing to put in some time and research regarding benefits, resources, and to break them down and share with our members. Someone who is willing to answer a random call from someone who really just needs to talk to a “battle buddy”. Someone who is willing to write or talk to leadership about veterans rights. Someone who is knowledgeable or willing to learn about USSERA laws, FMLA, and ADA. Someone who can bring in some fresh ideas as to how we can continue to help and support our military members.
Our committee is a voice. We are your voice. Their voice. We are veterans helping veterans!
If you are interested in joining us on this journey, please email a letter of interest with your name, phone number, and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please send all letters no later than 20 November 2018.
In your letter please tell us a little about yourself and why you think you would be a good fit for our team. Let us know what you want to bring to the table in working with us to help our veterans.
Thank you for your service and continued support.
We look forward to hearing from you!
