This past August my son Michael joined the Air Force. While working for MPR, Michael was responsible for posting website updates on current shop projects along with assisting on construction and fabrication of jobs here in the shop. He is really missed and the website lack of updates is just one of the holes that needs to be filled. It wont be easy to find someone with his skills, but we are working on it.
