Welcome Home Soldier!

This week’s blog is a video of a soldier’s reunion with his children.  I love stories like this.  Enjoy! After being deployed in Afghanistan for over a year, Cpl. Gerardo Benavides decided to give his children the surprise of their life. Mrs. Benavides worked with the school staff in order to plan an assembly at the kids’ elementary school at which their dad would surprise them in front of the entire school. The plan went off without a hitch, and the kids were reunited with their father for the first time in a year. Read more

Custom Solutions for Custom Problems

More often than not, customers already have existing equipment in place when they realize they have a need for more. Frequently, the existing structures are custom built, making it difficult to incorporate additional equipment and meet the customer’s needs. That’s not a problem for American Warehouse Systems, because we love a challenge and can find a solution for every problem. We recently finished installing mezzanine systems in two separate hangers on a military base. The mezzanines were being installed into older hangers with many obstructions. Because of this, only custom designed mezzanines would work for each hanger. An American Warehouse Systems mezzanine specialist completed a detailed site survey, where every column height was measured for the unique install locations. One hanger required a U-shaped mezzanine ... Read more

A Memorial Day Thank You

This memorial day, American Warehouse Systems wants to thank every American soldier, past and present, for their sacrifices for our freedom. We also want to remember those soldiers who have paid the ultimate price to defend our country. We appreciate everything the American military is doing and pray for the safe return of everyone fighting overseas. Memorial Day - C W Johnson We walked among the crosses Where our fallen soldiers lay. And listened to the bugle As TAPS began to play. The Chaplin led a prayer We stood with heads bowed low. And I thought of fallen comrades I had known so long ago. They came from every city Across this fertile land. That we might live in freedom. They lie here 'neath the ... Read more

Effective Weapons During the US Revolutionary War

I am often amazed by the technology of yesteryear especially implements of war.  Here are a few great examples of weapons used during the US Revolutionary war.  Both the muzzle loading cannon and the flintlock musket were used on almost every major battle of the Revolution (I'd say all but I don't have the evidence right now to back up that absolute).  These were high technology back then able to deal death to the enemy faster than ever.  I often think what a few cases of ammo and a mini-gun could have done!  Enjoy! Muzzle Loading Cannon Firing a muzzle loading cannon was quite difficult during the revolutionary war. It required a team of 7 to 14 men, with each soldier having a specialized job ... Read more

... So We Added A Mezzanine To Their Mezzanine

We are often asked to create storage space out of thin air.  Customers who have such a premium on floor space that they can't afford to give up an inch but desperately need the additional room.  In most cases an industrial steel warehouse mezzanine will fit the bill nicely.  Unfortunately sometimes a run of the mill mezzanine just won't do.  American Warehouse Systems loves projects like this.  A challenge to create something out of nothing.  This is one of those stories. Currently American Warehouse Systems is working on a project to build a two level mezzanine system on a military base. The customer expressed a need for significantly more storage in the building but did not have any floor space to lose. The structure presented ... Read more
