Military Mezzanines and Platforms

American Warehouse Systems designs, manufactures, and sells the number one mezzanine system to the Department of Defense; American Mezzanine Systems.

The Ups and Downs of Supporting the War Fighter.

A Strange "Surprise" Welcome Home for an American Soldier

US Army Airborne Christopher Kunder wanted to surprise his family upon his return home from Afghanistan.  To his dismay the house was locked and no one was home.  Christopher thought he would try to find a way in and wait until they came back but a good neighbor mistook him for a burglar and soon Illinois finest showed up.  The rest of the story is heart-warming and humorous.  I personally find it uplifting to read the police officer's reaction and how he handled the situation.  Please read the full story on Bill Flick's Blog on Pantagraph.  This is a great story from any perspective.  As you can see from the image, young Christopher was reunited with his family.  Welcome Home Soldier!
