Sears Supporting our Military

Sears is supporting our military in several manners. If you will be out and about on Black Friday, please make certain to patronize those who do help take care of our Airman, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines.

Here are some examples:

Sears Heroes at Home Wish Registry donate online, send a Thank You message, and/or see what families are wishing for this holiday season.

Sears is voluntarily paying the difference in salaries and maintaining all benefits, including medical insurance and bonus programs for all called up reservist employees for up to two years. By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more.

According to a spokesman for Sears, the company has extended the period in which it will make up the difference between active duty pay and normal salary for 60 months.

Medical, dental, and life insurance are extended as well.

The employee pays part and the company pays part.

Sears is also offering a make-up plan on 401K plans so a reservist will not lose retirement benefits.

Sears records show that the company has provided support to employees serving in the military since 1916.

May Almighty God Bless each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine!
May God Bless those who pray for our heroes!
