NTEU Salutes the Military


3/2/07: NTEU is showing our pride for members and their relatives who are serving in the U.S. military. A new page on the union's web site, NTEU.org, features profiles and photos of the brave men and women in active duty, the National Guard and military reserves. In addition, look for periodic spotlights in the NTEU e-Bulletin and a special spread in next month's Bulletin.

This week, NTEU is spotlighting Jorge Ortiz, Command Sergeant Major in the California National Guard and member of NTEU Chapter 123 (CBP Calexico). This certified jumpmaster is the senior enlisted adviser to the Battalion Commander, responsible for the health and morale of 680 fellow soldiers. Ortiz is presently conducting pre-deployment training in southern California in preparation for deployment to Kuwait.

If you or a family member is serving and you wish to submit a profile, please send an e-mail to NTEU.
