12 Years Later

9-11_firefighters 12 years ago today, our nation was forever changed.  The actions of a few permanently affected the lives of millions.  Today, we reflect on that day and the days, weeks, and months that followed.  It's a time to remember the heroes that emerged that day - the firefighters, police officers, EMTS, and thousands of other volunteers who helped with the search and rescue.  Take some time out of your day to reflect on the thousands of innocent lives that were lost at the hands of others. Also take some time to remember that freedom isn't free.  We are privileged enough to have our freedoms thanks to the brave men and women who protect our nation on a daily basis.  This group of people includes all branches ...

Tee It Up For The Troops: A Recap

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 ...

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. Military veterans are some of the most skilled people in the country and usually have top-notch training.  This exceptional training translates into extraordinary capability in the civilian workplace.  Veterans may require significantly less training than the average citizen, saving businesses time and money. The iHeartRadio Show Your Stripes initiative offers veterans ... Read more
