Have You Ever Heard of a Corkscrew Tank?

screw_drive_tank The Corkscrew Tank was developed by the Russians and was mostly used during the Cold War.  The corkscrew design made it ideal for use in the extreme winters, as it didn't get bogged down in snow and ice like other vehicles.  It was even able to travel sideways, which helped when it got stuck. Strangely enough, the Corkscrew Tank was unable to efficiently travel over normal terrain.  It was extremely effective for navigating the frozen tundra, but couldn't do much outside of that.  The vehicle also had difficult being steered as the screws couldn't be aimed from side to side.  There was no suspension on the tank which also complicated things. However, the tank was pretty cool looking and was able to do things that ... Read more

Hire Veterans Initiative - iHeartRadio Show Your Stripes

show-your-stripes111 Over the last several weeks, you may have heard commercials on the radio which talk about the need to hire veterans.  American Warehouse Systems would like to bring even more awareness to this topic in an effort to support the men and women who have defended our freedom.  Unfortunately, the unemployment rate among veterans is quite high, and we feel it's only right to support these brave people as they return to civilian life.

"Divots can be replaced. FREEDOM cannot." ™

American Warehouse Systems recognizes and supports Tee it up for the Troops for their efforts to honor the brave men and women who sacrifice their lives for our freedom and safety every day.  This is an organization that truly honors, respects, remembers and supports our brave members of the United States military.
