"God Bless America"

A California U.S. Army veteran employed by a hospital was recently shocked when supervisors ordered him to remove “God Bless America” from his e-mail signature block. 

What happened next was even more shocking.   While this employer-obedient veteran complied with his supervisors’ orders, he was nonetheless placed on administrative leave for “insubordination” when he said he wanted to consult with legal counsel about his rights.

To add insult to injury, this happened a few days before November 11th Veterans Day!

It mattered not to his supervisors that he had been a dedicated employee for ten years.  Nor did it matter of his prior Employee of the Year Award for his work in quality assurance.

Pierini Fitness salutes this fellow veteran for his attempt to spread a positive message to all receiving an e-mail from him. 

He’s welcome here anytime to share his good words in a comment.  We’ll never delete his comment or place him on cyberspace administrative leave.

To my fellow veteran, please continue spreading your message of “God Bless America.”

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
