As many of you know, our co-worker Scott Voison, is being deployed for Afghanistan to serve our country as a member of the U.S Navy. The company told Scott that they are not obligated to pay him, as he assumed they would, while he is gone. Chrysler has paid soldiers in the past for serving in wars such as Iraq and Afghanistan, but the wording of our contract has given management an out so they don't have to pay him. This fundraiser "More than Words" was started to help one of our own, a soldier, who is willing to sacrifice his time, his paycheck, and possibly his life for the cause of freedom. We can say "We support our troops" and we can wear yellow ribbons and wave flags, but in the end it's just words and gestures. This is an opportunity for us as co-workers and as Americans to put our money where our mouths are and to truly support a soldier. The goal is to make up for the money he is sacrificing by going to war and to show him we really do care. Would you consider sacrificing a day's pay or some Saturday overtime money to help Scott and his family? If the company were to cancel one Saturday of overtime most of us would be thrilled for the time off. Few, if any, would be worried about a financial hardship. Not everyone can afford to do this , but we can all afford to give something. Please consider making a sacrifice to support one of our own. Scott is not asking for this. He'll do whatever he has to to get by. The question is "should he have to?" Let's show him that we DO support our soldiers, and it's more than just words.
