Change In Command

On June 19th, the 3rd Infantry Regiment experienced a change of command.  This is a military tradition that represents a formal transfer of responsibility and authority for a particular unit.  In this case, Colonel Dave Anders handed over power to Colonel Jim Markert.

American Warehouse Systems is proud to support our men and women in uniform.  God Bless America! Read more

American Warehouse Systems is extremely grateful for the service and sacrifice that the men and women of the Armed Forces have given in order to ensure our freedom. Read more
