PACIFIC ENGINEERING, INC. develops Rapid On Demand Portable Medical Platforms to help in the war against the pandemic

ROCA, Neb. -- Pacific Engineering, Inc., winner of the U.S. Small Business Administration's 2014 Tibbetts Award for innovative technology, in response to the pandemic, has focused its resources on the development of a family of composite shelters that can be used as mobile test centers and patient treatment.

Specifically, these Rapid On Demand Portable Medical Platforms (ROD-PMP(TM)) may be easily and quickly deployed to areas or sites that lack diagnostic test capability such as rural hospitals, long-term care facilities, correctional institutions, critical industries (meat packing), sports venues, etc., to provide ready access testing for virus or similar outbreaks. Currently, platform models include a series of Test Platforms (Models 1000, 1100, 1200, and 1300) that provide rapid Point-of-Care testing and screening; and, Patient Treatment Models (Series 2000 and 3000 Models) that provide full service treatment and patient isolation for communities and hospitals that require these "surge" resources.

All ROD-PMP models utilize a lightweight composite structure that is durable, will not corrode, and easy to maintain. These units are deployable in all seasons and environments and are designed to the latest standard (ASTM 1925) for rigid wall relocatable structures (RWRS); the same criteria that is used by the U.S. Military for their tactical hospitals. All models can be transported using existing modes (common carrier) and set-up onsite using forklifts or cranes. PEI has designed the ROD-PMP in accordance with CDC guidelines and can be customized to meet specific user needs.

"When COVID-19 began to impact the U.S., our community and our employees, PEI began to consider what we could do to help combat this pandemic," stated Osie Combs, PEI President and retired Navy Rear Admiral. "Normally, our capabilities are utilized to support the U.S. Warfighter and help them take the fight to our foreign enemies. In this case, we are utilizing our advanced composites know-how to help fight a war on our soil, a more personal battle to protect our own families and communities. The ROD-PMP(TM) product line utilizes the latest technology in materials and design. PEI is dedicated to fielding a product that ramps up our nation's test capabilities, and equally important, a system that also protects our incredible healthcare workers."

PEI will be offering the ROD-PMP product line to communities, hospitals, agencies, and organizations throughout the United States. Our design and manufacturing facility stands ready to provide these systems within weeks of order placement. The ROD-PMP is the next step in fighting the pandemic and beyond.

Pacific Engineering, Inc. (PEI), is high tech small business located in Lincoln, Nebraska. Since 1998, PEI has been a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced composite structures for the military and commercial markets.

Farewell to an American Hero: Juan ‘Skip’ Torres – Purple Heart Recipient, Korean and Vietnam War Veteran and Retired US Marshal

PINE ISLAND, Fla. -- The Family of Juan Manuel Torres announced today that Dr. Juan Manuel Torres of Pine Island, Fla.-a decorated Korean and Vietnam veteran and beloved father, grandfather, and friend to many-passed away this week at the age of 86-years-old after a courageous battle with cancer and pneumonia.

Dr. Torres, who earned a PhD later in life, was a true patriot and American hero. Born in Arecibo, P.R. and raised in the Bronx, N.Y., he joined the U.S. Army in 1949 at the young age of fifteen by "revising" his birth certificate. After enlisting in the U.S. Army, Dr. Torres was immediately deployed to Korea where he was assigned to the 21st Regiment of the 24th Infantry Division (Task Force Smith) and placed directly into combat against aggressing North Korean and Chinese ("the Reds") troops. Outnumbered five to one, his unit suffered heavy casualties over many months of sustained fighting.

During a battle where he was assigned to hold back the advancing Reds while his squad moved to another location, he was captured and beaten, yet later escaped while being marched to a prisoner detention facility. After Dr. Torres' squad leader was killed during an intense battle, he was given a field promotion to Corporal. While in a foxhole during one battle, his buddies affectionately called him "Skip," which is a name he kept for the rest of his life.

Skip was discharged and returned from Korea to New York after the Army discovered he was only 16-years-old. He was, however, later allowed to enlist in the U.S. Air Force as an Air Policeman (later changed by the USAF to Security Forces) where he spent the next 20-plus years, including a one-year tour in Vietnam during the height of the conflict. While in Vietnam, he was promoted to Technical Sergeant (TSgt) where he led the USAF Security Forces at Bien Hoa Air Base and protected U.S. jet fighters and bombers during the "Tet Offensive" when 100,000 Viet Cong attacked U.S. personnel and facilities, including the air base at Bien Hoa. During the offensive, the Viet Cong struck heavily with continuous artillery, mortar, rocket and machine gun fire in an attempt to take control of his base. TSgt Torres' security forces were the first line of defense and held back the invading Viet Cong while U.S. Army helicopter gunships and Air Force F-100 fighters took off to end the assault. TSgt Torres was injured during the battle while extracting U.S. troops from a burning Armored Personnel Carrier (APC), but declined any awards saying: "It was just my duty."

When President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, Skip was chosen to lead the Honor Guard at Montauk Air Force Base in New York to commemorate the passing of the president and to demonstrate American resolve. Skip received the Purple Heart medal for injuries he sustained from gunshot and shrapnel wounds while in combat against the North Koreans and Chinese. He was also awarded numerous additional U.S. Army and Air Force distinctions, such as the Combat Infantryman's Badge (CIB) and the U.S. Air Force Commendation Medal.

After retiring from the U.S. armed forces, Skip was recruited by the U.S. Marshals Service as a Deputy U.S. Marshal and was later promoted to Chief Deputy U.S. Marshal where he led key task forces against drug cartels and mafias in the southeast and northeast regions of the United States. He was once again injured during a standoff between U.S. Marshals and armed mafia assailants. Skip retired from the U.S. Marshals Service after 30-plus years of combined U.S. military and government service.

After retiring from the U.S. Marshals Service, Skip earned a PhD in seminary studies and became an ordained minister where he faithfully served his community for the remainder of his life. For three decades, he volunteered to feed the homeless throughout central and south Florida nearly every week; participated in dozens of veteran's events; helped to create a veteran's museum; and delivered hundreds of sermons as an ordained reverend. He gave most of his U.S. military and government retirement pay to charities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) worldwide, such as a Pakistan Relief Fund for victims of a devastating earthquake, the Feed the Children foundation, Jewish charities based in Israel where he traveled, as well as to veteran's organizations, such as Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and the Wounded Warrior Project.

Skip was always a loving husband, father, grandfather, and loyal friend. He was an inspiration to his sons, grandsons and granddaughters who went on to become members of the U.S. military, civil servants and medical professionals. Skip will be greatly missed by his former spouse, Diana V. Torres, Director of Nursing and a career nurse in Kansas for over 50 years; his sons-John L. Torres, career business executive; Jerry W. Torres, retired Special Forces Green Beret; Russell D. Torres, former U.S. Army 82nd Airborne soldier; and Scott F. Torres, former Kansas Deputy Sheriff; daughters-in-law Rebecca Torres, career Kansas Supervisory Nurse and Mary Torres, career business executive; and grandchildren Maria Valeria Torres, currently serving with the FBI; Randall Torres and Nicholas Torres, former Kansas law enforcement officers; and Brianna Torres who is beginning her career as a hospital nurse in Kansas.

Dr. Juan Manuel Torres was one of the many proud Infantrymen of Puerto Rico who volunteered and served valiantly in the Korean and Vietnam wars, and he is one of the last surviving soldiers of Task Force Smith - The Battle of OSAN. He was part of America's greatest generation, and we thank him for his lifetime of service. He will be interned at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, and his legacy will continue in the hearts of the countless people he influenced throughout his 86 years of life.

Editorial Note: Press release was written by Dr. Rebekah Dyer, Fairfax, Va. in collaboration with son Jerry W. Torres, Arlington, Va.

Infrared Mechanical Articulating Video Borescope Now Available from ViewTech Borescopes

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- ViewTech Borescopes, North America's top seller of Video Borescopes, recently added another video borescope to their lineup. The VJ-3 Infrared (IR) mechanical articulating video borescope can illuminate a dark area or room with IR light, which is undetectable to the human eye. While the VJ-3 IR is mainly used with an infrared light, users can switch to a white LED light if the inspection requires non-infrared lighting.

The VJ-3 IR is available with an insertion tube diameter of 6.0 millimeters and lengths of 1.0 or 2.0 meters. Featuring full four-way articulation, a rugged, liquid-proof design, along with a full one-year warranty, the IR video borescope is rated to see a distance up to 20 meters in total darkness.

The VJ-3 IR is ideal for police, SWAT, military or security operations where undetectable surveillance is necessary or when a white light cannot be used during an application inspection. The easy-to-operate VJ-3 IR also includes a magnetic support base that can assist with inspections. In addition to the VJ-3 Infrared video borescope, ViewTech Borescopes also recently released two other borescope models, the VJ-3 Dual Camera and the VJ-3 Ultraviolet (UV).

VJ-3 Video Borescope

The VJ-3 mechanical articulating video borescope is a nondestructive testing instrument used for the remote visual inspection of machinery, equipment and components. The VJ-3 facilitates the visual recording and photo documentation of an inspection and components in areas that are otherwise inaccessible or require great effort and expense to access directly. The VJ-3 consists of two modules integrated into one system: an insertion tube with distally mounted camera/LEDs, and the base unit with control panel, LCD monitor, power source and all necessary circuitry.

About ViewTech Borescopes

ViewTech Borescopes, founded as RF System Lab in 2008, is North America's #1 seller of video borescopes. Their first product, the VJ borescope, set a new standard for portability, ergonomics and ease-of-use, with its industry-first mechanical, joystick-controlled articulation.

Iwo Jima Memorial Midwest Project, Inc. Building New Iwo Jima Memorial – Updated with Correct Flag-raisers

RACINE, Wis. -- In tandem with 75th Anniversary of the flag-raising on Mt. Suribachi, the Iwo Jima Memorial Midwest Project (IJMM) is launching a nationwide program to build a new Iwo Jima Monument. The new statue will replace the faces of two flag-raisers that were misidentified with the actual Marines who participated.

Harold "Pie" Keller and Harold Schultz were identified by HQ USMC with the aid of FBI forensics as the Marines raising the flag. Therefore, the new IJMM statue will be the very first monument built that reflects the exact image of the photograph.

The raising of the US flag over Mount Suribachi, was the first foreign flag ever to fly on Japanese soil. The photograph of the flag raising was taken by AP photographer Joe Rosenthal. It became an iconic image of not only the battle, but of the War in the Pacific and one of the most reproduced photographs in the world.

For 36 days in February-March of 1945, the Battle of Iwo Jima Island saw some of the fiercest fighting of the Pacific War. In the five week battle American casualties reached 26,040 of which 6,821 Marines were killed and 23,573 wounded 33% of their available force, or one in every three that landed.

The new Monument will be placed in Racine, Wisconsin, just north of Chicago and South of Milwaukee. Racine is the home of Marine Corps League Detachment 346 that has been doing a Living Memorial Float of the flag-raising for over 74 years. The Marines hold the position of the famous statue for up to two hours in parades and various events.

The very first Iwo Jima Monument statue was molded as a table top version for review and approvals by the USMC. Sculptor Felix De Weldon used Johnson Floor Wax to form this statue. SC Johnson Wax Corporate HQ is in Racine.

World renowned Sculptor, Robert Bricker of the Bronze Craft Foundry in Charlottsville, Virginia will produce the 40 percent size of original size bronze monument. Bricker was the sculptor selected by National Parks to work on the restoration of the original statue in Arlington. The figures will be 13 feet tall. It will take 16 months to produce and weigh 20,000 lbs.

The two year, $4 Million dollar fundraising project is supported by all volunteer Marines, Veterans, Veterans Support Groups and dedicated civilians. The fundraising efforts are nationwide, supported with a wide range of merchandise for donors. Solicitation of Corporate sponsors is underway.

Extensive information can be found at their website http://www.ijmmproject.org

Once completed the Monument location will be used as a venue to host a variety of Veterans events and expand educational support elements for elementary schools. The Project will in-turn institute fund gathering efforts to support needy Veterans

The Iwo Jima Memorial Midwest Project is a momentous undertaking that will benefit the preservation of the most recognizable, patriotic image in the history of World War II and the United States Marine Corps.

"With the generous help of Americans and Veterans, the Monument will help preserve the Spirit of America, it's symbol of Patriotism and Love of Country. It will forever pay tribute to the thousands of Marines and Veterans that paid the ultimate sacrifice to preserve the Freedoms we enjoy today," said John Capriotti, IJMM Project Director.

Mag Instrument to Launch the MAGLITE Tactical Group (MTG) at SHOT Show 2020

ONTARIO, Calif. -- Mag Instrument is introducing the MAGLITE® Tactical Group (MTG) at SHOT SHOW 2020. The introduction of MTG coincides with the release of several new and enhanced products for tactical use for law enforcement and military including, the ML150LRS Compact Rechargeable System, MAG-TAC II, and Butt Stock Shell Holder.

The ML150LRS Compact Rechargeable System, a smaller version of the award-winning ML150LR, is estimated at 800 lumens, a beam throw of approximately a quarter of a mile, patented heat sink technology, excellent battery life, fast charging, and multiple-function sets and operating modes.

"These new products we know will be well-received in the law-enforcement community and at the SHOT Show 2020," said Anthony Maglica, Founder and CEO of Maglite.

The MAG-TAC II is a compact hand-held flashlight, CR123 powered and ergonomically designed with multiple contoured grooves to provide a firm grip for those using either the HARRIES HOLD or what legendary firearms trainer Bill Murphy has coined as the Rodgers/MAG-TAC Hold.

"Other tactical hand-held flashlights used by law enforcement have tactile surfaces to reduce chance of slippage, but the MAG-TAC II provides a whole new level of secure grip and control in high-tension situations," said Bill Murphy, President of Firearms Trainings Associates.

The newly enhanced MAG-TAC® LED Rechargeable System now with higher lumens and longer run time, is an advanced lighting tool powered by a high capacity Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) rechargeable battery engineered for long service life with a 2.5 hour charge time. Along with superior quality, performance, and reliability, the MAG-TAC® LED rechargeable flashlight comes with a detachable pocket clip and a USB powered mountable charging base. The aluminum body has an aggressive knurled design and stealth matte anodized finish and comes with either a crown or plain bezel.

Maglite Tactical Group is also introducing a tactical shotgun Butt Stock Shell Holder (BSSH). The BSSH will fit most of the popular shotgun models for both right- and left-hand use and provides quick access for up to 8 shells for fast and versatile reloads. "My preferred combat weapon has always been the shotgun and this accessory helps alleviate the one real tactical drawback to that weapon," said Murphy.

Also featured at the booth will be MAGLITE® Roadside Safety packs available in four (4) different models.

All of these products will be showcased at Maglite SHOT SHOW Booths 4029 and 30109.

United States Air Force Partners with UniverseIT and Classe365

SUGARLAND, Texas -- UniverseIT is excited to announce a new partnership with the United States Air Force (USAF) which encompasses serving three training schools - the Air Ground Operations School (AGOS); Weapons School (USAFWS); and Advanced Maintenance and Munitions Operations School (AMMOS).

This partnership will provide solutions to current problems with data acquisition and management, prerequisite tracking and elimination of physical media for all three USAF school locations. Work began to implement the solution on November 4.

UniverseIT conducted an in-depth discovery process of the three schools to determine needs and to look for synergies and commonalities in order to consolidate and streamline work as needed. This resulted in several customizations Classe365 is doing for the USAF based on their specific needs.

Joe Eldridge, president and CEO, UniverseIT says, "This partnership will provide improved administration processes and procedures and more efficient workflow for its students and school administration; Classe365 allows us to customize it based on the needs to school. We can accommodate most scenarios."

Many of the schools lack a strong central single source of truth for any given data point, instead relying on not only the military databases they have access to, but also more than one Excel spreadsheet containing copies of the same data.

UniverseIT is an authorized reseller and implementer of Classe365. It will go a long way towards establishing a master record for each data point while allowing other solutions to inherit that data via integration, rather than keeping its own independent copy.

Classe365, a student information system that comes with a learning management system and more, will allow document tracking features to be implemented for each applicant as well as giving them an electronic test and recording their score electronically. This will, in turn, allow the schools to ensure they have applicants moving through the process efficiently while being aware of what is and is not complete.

In addition, the schools don't currently have a standard way to distribute course content online. Many students who appear for the programs are provided physical DVDs and notebooks with course content. When coupled with tracking challenges, efficiency is lacking and both time and materials are being wasted. Classe365 and SharePoint online will allow for archiving and presentation of the course content online to each student so that no hard copies will be needed.

UniverseIT is also providing custom work and development to automate test and quiz generation from customizable question banks.

About UniverseIT:

UniverseIT provides IT solutions for small to medium-sized business and educational institutions of all sizes and types. Its philosophy is to provide simple, honest, and empowering IT solutions to launch an enterprise into success. UniverseIT is a Microsoft Partner as well as the premier Classe365 Partner in the United States.

Joe Eldridge, a 19-year Microsoft veteran, directed numerous organizations at Microsoft before founding UniverseIT. He has many Microsoft certifications and has always worked on commercial software, while leading numerous large projects to success.

Leading this implementation is Erica Weldon, vice president and COO. Her ability to break down a problem and solve it in the most efficient manner is second to none.

Due to the Gilroy Tragedy, the Historic Meeting with Calif. Gov. Newsom and 100-year-old WWII Vet Sidney Walton Occurred at the Capitol Monday, Immediately after the Governor Returned from Gilroy

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sidney Walton, age 100, one of America's oldest WWII veterans and just back from on-stage in Normandy, met with Gov. Gavin Newsom July 29, 4:30 to 5 p.m. in the Governor's office.

The meeting was arranged by state Senator Brian Jones from San Diego County.

Although the meeting was closed to the press, videos and photos are now available on Sidney's website at: http://www.gosidney.com/.

"This meeting with the governor of my home state was very special to me," said Sidney.

Added his son Paul: "We were honored that he still made time to meet with Dad, a WWII veteran, upon returning to the Capitol from the tragic event in Gilroy."

Sidney is on a first-ever, nationwide No Regrets Tour (http://www.nationalnoregretstour.com/) raising awareness of the diminishing number of WWII veterans and the sacrifices they made. He is meeting all 50 governors in all 50 states, and met with the President in the Oval Office on April 11. On June 6, Sidney was on-stage with Presidents Trump and Macron at the 75th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy.

As he travels constantly throughout the U.S., at every stop along the way his most frequent expression is, "I love this country!" His continued love and patriotism for America is the driving force behind his unique mission.

Born February 11, 1919 in New York City, Sidney joined the Army in March 1941 - nine months before Pearl Harbor - and served for the entire war. As a survivor of the Asian conflict in WWII, Sidney is reminding Americans of the sacrifices these brave men and women made for our freedom today. In a few short years, there will be no WWII veterans left.

Sidney's biggest regret in life is missing a historic moment to meet some of the last Civil War veterans. Now, to make up for it, the No Regrets Tour is giving American citizens a rare opportunity to meet one of the last surviving WWII veterans.

"In these times when the country has become so divisive, my father represents a vanishing breed that unites both Democrats and Republicans alike. Everyone thanks him for his service in helping to save this beautiful country," said his son Paul Walton. "It brings tears to my eyes to see him treated like a national treasure."

A position with the federal government brought Sidney and his wife Rena to San Diego in 1960, where they raised three children, Paul, Judy and Ellie. Sidney has remained a widower since Rena's death from cancer in 1982. At age 99, he reminded Paul of his lifetime regret not meeting Civil War veterans. That initiated the National No Regrets Tour. The two-year tour is almost half-way completed.

A GoFundMe link has been set up on Sidney's webpage, http://www.gosidney.com/.

Gov. Newsom was the 23rd governor to greet Sidney:

"In these times when the country has become so divisive, my father represents a vanishing breed that unites both Democrats and Republicans alike. Everyone thanks him for his service in helping to save this beautiful country," said his son Paul Walton. "It brings tears to my eyes to see him treated like a national treasure."

A position with the federal government brought Sidney and his wife Rena to San Diego in 1960, where they raised three children, Paul, Judy and Ellie. Sidney has remained a widower since Rena's death from cancer in 1982. At age 99, he reminded Paul of his lifetime regret not meeting Civil War veterans. That initiated the National No Regrets Tour. The two-year tour is almost half-way completed.

A GoFundMe link has been set up on Sidney's webpage, https://gosidneygo.com.

1. Gov. Gina Raimondo, RI - 4/24/18
