Merry Christmas, My Friend

2015-Christmas-AWS In honor of our troops who are home to celebrate Christmas and the holidays with their loved ones and also for those who are stationed far away and  will miss the warmth and comfort of home and family, I wanted to share this beautiful poem.  It's inspiring and well worth the read.Merry Christmas, My FriendTwas the night before Christmas, he lived all alone, In a one bedroom house made of plaster & stone.I had come down the chimney, with presents to give and to see just who in this home did liveAs I looked all about, a strange sight I did see, no tinsel, no presents, not even a tree. No stocking by the fire, just boots filled with sand. On the wall hung pictures of a far ... Read more

Happy Thanksgiving America!

happy-thanksgiving-AWS Happy Thanksgiving to you from all of us at American Warehouse Systems.  This holiday is a time to reflect on how blessed we are to work with an incredible team and for the opportunities we have to serve our clients with pride.  We’d also like to take this time to reflect on how thankful we are for our American military men and women.  Their time, sacrifice, and dedication to our freedom and country… I feel we can never thank them enough for this.  Many of our brave service members do not get the pleasure of being with their families during the holidays.  Please remember them.#SOT #GodBlessAmerica   Read more

Homeless Vets to move into Fort Snelling in MN - From stables and tank garages to apartments

Fort Snelling in the 1800's How appropriate that Fort Snelling be turned into housing units for homeless vets. Built in the early 1820's, Fort Snelling was strategically placed at the junction of the Minnesota and Mississippi Rivers to combat hostile enemies.  From the Civil War through WWII, Ft. Snelling has been a significant military post.  Now it's significance will lie in battling homelessness for military veterans. Abandoned for decades, the 5 units that used to house horses and tanks for active military members, now will house honorably discharged, homeless veterans.  Five of Fort Snelling's military buildings will be re-purposed into 58 affordable apartments for homeless veterans and their families.  These will not be transitional shelters.  These units will be permanent and fully equipped with multiple bedrooms. The developers plan to retain the historic integrity of the structures.  The ... Read more

Reagan's powerful message. Freedom must be protected!

800px-REAGANEugeniaCharles We must learn from our past.  Ronald Reagan's inspiring message in the video below rings true with what we are facing today with groups such as ISIS and their cowardly, terrorist threats. There is a risk in every course that we follow but no greater risk than this; the greater risk lies in appeasement.  Because some have pleaded for peace at any price, our enemy believes that over time, we will surrender because we will be weakened from within spiritually, morally, and economically. Freedom is not purchased by the price of chains in slavery.  Our country has been founded upon great sacrifice to secure our Freedom!!  In order to keep peace and have freedom, we must have the courage to say to our enemies, "There is a price we ...
