 It's Here!      Demo

 It is with great pride that we are now offering you a chance
to salute and support our National Guard and Reserve, with
"ESGR Radio - New Mexico."

 This program will take a wide look at the "Employer Support
of the Guard and Reserve," the businesses that employ our
service men and women, and the volunteers that help all sides
in navigating the issues surrounding employment and regulations.

 Most of all, ESGR Radio - NM will feature our local people that
are making a difference in our communities. We will be talking
to recruiters on offering our young people money for college,
a sense of purpose, and trade that they can always be proud of.

 We will also be talking to those who volunteer their time to help
our Guard and Reserve on a local basis.
