Robinson: Thanks for remembering the reserves

I just wanted to say this is truly a great story ‘Western honored for Reserve Force support’ (, May 26). I was a member of the Reserve Force while working here at Western from 1996-2006 and the support I received really benefited my career both in the Canadian Forces and here.

I know what Western did by supporting us reservists, they received back 10 fold. Western gave me the time, with no question, to help out during 1998 ice storm. In the summers, I was able to take a leave of absence to instruct on various courses throughout Canada.

Western is an employer that truly knows the benefit of service and it is great to see them recognized for it.
