July 21, 2003 -- Washington, DC—Public Printer Bruce R. James is recognizing seven Government Printing Office employees who have been recently called to duty. The men are members of the Reserves and have been called on to take part in ongoing military efforts throughout the world. "Their dedication to the defense of our country during such a difficult time in our nation's history is commendable and laudable. All of us at GPO join family, friends and co-workers in wishing all of these employees a speedy and safe return home and to their jobs," said Public Printer James. Each of the employees received an American Flag in recognition of their service. The flags had been flown over the U.S. Capitol, and were each provided with a certificate honoring the recipients for their service to their country. The flags were purchased from the Congress through the office of Rep. Robert Ney, Chairman of the Joint Committee on Printing, which oversees the GPO.
