Local Subway owners support veterans
AMHERST – Alan Tang and Morgan Cram, owners of three Subway restaurants in Amherst and Milford, were honored by the New Hampshire Employer Support for the Guard and Reserve for their roles in promoting the hiring of veterans as well as a fundraising campaign to support veteran issues.
The signing ceremony involves employers signing a statement of support, which bears the seals of the United States military reserve components. It is signed by Paul Mock, national chairman of ESGR, and Ash Carter, Secretary of Defense.
Tang and Cram join employers in pledging:
- They will fully recognize, honor and enforce the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights.
- Their managers and supervisors will have the tools they need to effectively manage those employees who serve in the Guard and Reserve.
- They will continually recognize and support the country’s service members and their families in peace, in crises and in war.
Tang is a member of the board of advertising for New Hampshire Subway owners and was integral in promoting the current fundraiser at all New England Subways to raise funds for the Easter Seals’ Military and Veterans Services program.
"After meeting Jim Goss, one of ESGR’s volunteer coordinators, at a Souhegan Valley Chamber of Commerce event, Morgan and I knew that we wanted to ask our fellow Subways to get involved with veterans issues," Tang said.
Cram, Tang’s wife and business partner, added, "We feel great about this program. Alan and I both have grandfathers that fought in wars and we have family members who are in the military. We are so proud to participate."
The Subways have raised about $24,000 for Veterans Count and hope to raise another $10,000 before the program ends Oct. 31
