fallen soldier salute By Mike Peterson.  Mike is a dedicated sales representative of American Warehouse Systems and is a proud supporter of our troops.   On August 15th, I had the pleasure of representing American Warehouse Systems at the third annual Tee it up for the Troops event at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids, MN. The opening ceremony had many touching moments, including a 21 gun salute by the rifle squad from the Anoka County chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America, a bagpipe rendition of “America the Beautiful,” and an impromptu speech from Brig. Gen. Neal Loidolt, director of joint staff for the Minnesota National Guard. The most memorable moment for me, however, was when they called for all of the veterans and active duty soldiers ...
