At Labor Finders the Support of Staff and Their Brave Military Family is Krista Clear!
May 07, 2018 // Franchising.com // PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL - Labor Finders International, the oldest and largest privately held industrial labor staffing company in the United States with its corporate headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida is honored to support America’s military and their families. Every single day America’s young women and men are deployed overseas. When their families hear the word deployment, they know the time they have left state-side with their loved ones will be short…very short. What one mother did to see her son before his deployment overseas is heart-warming.
Krista Rack is an Administrative Assistant to the very busy and successful Sacramento, California branch office of Labor Finders. As a way of rewarding the top performing company owned offices for a successful year, Amit Singh, who doubles as Labor Finders International’s Chief Operating Officer and as President of LF Staffing Services, Inc., offered an all-expense paid cruise and Krista’s Sacramento office was rewarded with the trip. During this time, Krista, the dedicated and hard-working single mother of three was informed that her eldest son Kyle D., a Fire Support Specialist (otherwise known as 13F,) was to be deployed to a top secret location overseas. For Krista, along with many families of loved ones about to serve our country in a war-zone, there are mixed feelings of being both proud and terrified. The thought of luxuriating on a cruise was not an option for Krista. Without hesitation, Krista opted for the cash equivalent of the cruise and with Samantha her 17 year old daughter in tow; they embarked on a road trip from Sacramento to Colorado Springs, Colorado to see Kyle before he shipped out. Her middle child Connor, 18 is presently in Texas waiting on deployment to Poland; would not be a part of the trip.
Road trips can be both fun and stressful; for Krista the twenty-hour straight driving trip was beyond stressful. Dealing with the hazardous conditions on mountainous roads is not for the faint-of-heart but for Krista and Samantha they were two women on a mission…Mission Kyle.
The moment Krista laid eyes on Kyle shortly after arriving at the military base was her chance to hug her boy, “I had Kyle in my grasp and I did not want to let him go,” said Krista. Spending some much needed alone time for the family of three was important and three “hung out”. Later that night Krista, Samantha and Kyle went to dinner with his “Battle Buddies”. That dinner was extremely special, “Every one of those young men sitting at the table were being deployed with Kyle. It is a moment that I will cherish for the rest of my life,” said Krista.
Over the next couple of days the family spent quality time enjoying the natural beauty of Colorado Springs and each other. When it was time to say “Goodbye for now”, as one can imagine, the tears were flowing. Needless to say, for Krista and Samantha it was a tough journey back to Sacramento. “None of us wanted to let go from the strong bear-like embrace. My mind quickly flashed from the first moment I held Kyle as a newborn, to when I hugged him on his first day at school and then throughout every special moment that we have shared together. The journey home was tough for both me and Samantha. I knew I was going to be a wreck when I returned to office but I am truly grateful for the on-going support from my wonderful Labor Finders family and not just in my office but throughout the company,” said Krista.
When Kyle along with 600 other soldiers in his Battalion shipped out, immediately it was the beginning of a new journey for these brave men and women. The moment Kyle arrived at his location he got in touch with his mother. “It took Kyle awhile to get a routine down,” said Krista. “The time change was difficult for him but I've been able to message him through Facebook which has helped immensely. I know there are going to be times when I am not going to hear from him and those are going to be rough times. I need to be strong not just for Samantha, Connor and Kyle but for me as well. I have too many people in my life that need me, that rely on me. Yes, I must be strong.”
