Rep. Youngblood participates in honoring ABQ area Patriotic Employers who value hiring unemployed and underemployed national guard and reserve members. “It’s an honor for me to be here today to thank not only our service members and families for their service to our state and country but to thank the employers who believe our service members are a valuable and talented asset to your businesses and our State. It’s also an honor to recognize the City of Albuquerque (Police and Fire Department) for receiving the Employer Support Freedom Award from the US Department of Defense and for being the ONLY City in the nation to receive this award.” – Rep.
