Terrorists attacks can happen anytime, anywhere . Consider installing a High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter in your furnace return duct. These filters remove particles in the 0.3 to 10 micron range and will filter out most biological agents that may enter your house. If you do not have a central heating or cooling system, a stand-alone portable HEPA filter can be used. http://ow.ly/ywUyQ

This video focuses on the riders in the Caisson platoon and their opportunity to earn their brass spurs by completing 500 funeral missions.

Additionally, we’ll see an increased sales base for DLA Energy and decreased costs for all of our customers, as our overhead can be spread over an even greater customer base.” http://ow.ly/yV4zU
