The YMCA collected over 160lbs (and saved members from consuming many thousands of calories) of leftover halloween candy. Bins were placed at the Downtown Asheville Y and Woodfin Community Y to encourage members to pass their sweets on to deployed US troops around the world through Operation Gratitude which sends over 200,000 care packages annually. AvL Technologies provided boxing and shipping services for the project.

The United States Donates Three Mobile Emergency Response Centers to Uruguay
October 7, 2016
A recent article titled The United States Donates Three Mobile Emergency Response Centers to Uruguay
in the Dialogo Digital Military Magazine caught our attention. It's a great story about U.S. Southern Command enabling emergency responders in Uruguay, and we were thrilled to see AvL antennas on the Mobile Emergency Response Centers (MERC). These impressive MERCs were built by IP Access International
, Comprehensive Communication Services
, and Chilcott, Inc.
According to the article, the MERCs "are easy to transport, quick to deploy, and can be activated in less than 30 minutes, linking multiple satellite, radio and internet communications systems. Their generators allow them to operate autonomously for 7 to 10 days." Many thanks to IP Access Internatioal, Comprehensive Communication Services and Chilcott, Inc. for including AvL antennas on this important project!comment
