    I received what is below in an email today (I am not promoting shopping at Sears). I was just curious as to the veracity of this claim. Given that corporations seem to be taking over this new world order what is below seems to be out of sync if it is true.

    Sears - Christmas shopping this year.

    I know I needed this reminder, since Sears isn't always my first choice.
    It's amazing when you think of how long the war has lasted and Sears hasn't withdrawn from their commitment. Could we each buy at least one thing at Sears this year?

    How does Sears treat its employees who are called up for military duty? By law, they are required to hold their jobs open and available, but nothing more. Usually, people take a big pay cut and lose benefits as a result of being called up for active duty ...

    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.

    I submit that Sears is an exemplary corporate citizen and should be
    recognized for its contribution. I suggest we all shop at Sears at least
    once, and be sure to find a manager to tell them why we are there so the company gets the positive reinforcement & feedback it well deserves.

    Pass it on.

    I decided to check this before I sent it forward. So I sent the following
    e-mail to the Sears Customer Service Department:

    I received this e-mail and I would like to know if it is true. If it is, the
    internet may have just become one very good source of advertisement for your company. I know I would go out of my way to buy products from Sears instead of another store for a like item, even if it's cheaper at that store.

    This is their answer to my e-mail:

    Dear Customer:

    Thank you for contacting Sears.The information is factual. We appreciate
    your positive feedback.

    Sears regards service to our country as one of greatest sacrifices our young men and women can make. We are happy to do our part to lessen the burden they bear at this time.

    Please pass this on to all your friends. Sears needs to be recognized for
    this outstanding contribution and we need to show them as Americans, we do appreciate what they are doing for our military!!!

    I had not heard it before, but says that it is true and I think that it is a reliable source. It also says that Sears is one of many businesses that support their employees while they are doing military service. A list can be found on the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserves (ESGR) website : . I was not successful in finding it.

    I received the same email from my daughter. I believe what they are saying about Sears is true. We need more kindness like this in our world.
