HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah (AP) -- It was take-your-employer-to-work day at Hill Air Force Base.

The employers of Air Force base reservists were treated to rides in an air tanker, an air show and visited work areas throughout the base yesterday.

The event was an effort to give employers a taste of the other side of life for reservists.

Employers offer vital support, understanding and most importantly hold jobs for military reservists when they're called to service.

More than 40 employers attended the event, including Travis Bates who manages the Riverdale location of Home Depot.

That Home Depot has six reservists working there.

Bates says his employee reservists have a great work ethic.
