Appleton WI—Bobby and Allison Fleshman were honored to sign the Statement of Support on Friday December 14, 2018 to demonstrate their support of the men and women serving in the Wisconsin Guard and Reserve.
LeRoy Frahm, Wisconsin Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR) Volunteer said, “ESGR was charter by the Department of Defense in 1972, as this country moved to an all-volunteer force. The Statement of Support was created by ESGR to publicly recognize companies large and small who support the citizen soldiers like men and women before them, have answered their nation’s call to serve. Supportive employers are critical to maintaining the strength and readiness of the nation’s Guard and Reserve units. Nearly half of our nation’s defense is in the National Guard and Reserves today. It is important for all employers to show their support by signing this Department of Defense Certificate and display it.”
The Fleshmans said, " 'Respecting the Beer' is our motto at McFleshman’s and we can’t think of a group more deserving of Respect than our service women and men. Thank you to all who serve and when you come in, please let us know you serve as we’ve got special promotions just for you! We also have "Vets & Pets" on Tuesday nights supporting veterans and veterans with service animals."
Following the signing, a tour of the newly remodeled brewing facilities took place and Allison McCoy Fleshman said “we will display this in a great location so all our customers and venders will see it.”
McFleshman’s Brewing Company is a microbrewery located at 115 S State St in downtown Appleton, WI that is owned and operated by the Fleshman and McCoy families. They specialize in German lagers and British ales that you can taste in their taproom which hosts live music, board games & trivia, and food trucks in the summer, but welcomes carry-in food year round.
Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense operational committee, facilitates and promotes a cooperative culture of employer support for National Guard and Reserve service by developing and advocating mutually beneficial initiatives, recognizing outstanding employer support, increasing awareness of applicable laws and policies, resolving potential conflicts between employers and their service members, and acting as the employers’ principal advocate within DoD. Paramount to ESGR's mission is encouraging employment of Guardsmen and Reservists who bring integrity, global perspective and proven leadership to the civilian workforce.
