B&W honored by U.S. Special Forces

B&W honored by U.S. Special Forces

  •  Each December B&W Trailer Hitches gathers for Christmas Dinner in our company break room to celebrate Christmas. Dave Evans gave us a gift that resonated with all of our employees. We don’t normally receive gifts, let alone a gift as unique as this one. 

     

    A beautiful United States flag was flown on behalf of B&W Trailer Hitches by Sergeant Jeremy Steel of the 7th Group Special Forces over the Special Operation Community Memorial on the Bagram Military Base in Afghanistan, a place many consider to be sacred ground. This Memorial honors the fallen members of the Special Forces; Navy Seals, Marine Special Operations Command and other various Army Special Forces groups. Only those in the Special Forces community are granted access to the Special Operation Community Memorial. Sergeant Steel flew this flag on December 1st 2012, a day of particular success for Special Forces.

     

    Dave Evans a Secure Communications Support Engineer learned of B&W’s strong commitment to keeping jobs in America by producing products made in the United States. In B&W Trailer Hitches honor he requested that a flag be flown over the Special Operation Community Memorial on the Bagram military base in Afghanistan.

     

    “This flag is a rare item and deserves to be displayed,” stated Todd Eyster Product Engineer at B&W Trailer Hitches and friend of Dave Evans. “To have a flag that was flown over that site is quite an honor.”

     

    Mr. Evans has been to Iraq and Afghanistan nine times on tours lasting between four and nine months, primarily supporting Special Forces units. He continues to serve his country and specifically those at the “point of the spear” by providing secure IT support for our military troops. 

     

    Thank you, Dave Evans and Sergeant Steel, for honoring us.

     

    We give Dave Evans our thanks and gratitude for serving our country so that we are free to produce American-Made products for all of these great United States.

     

     American Flag Presented
