PSI and MEGS

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

The United Service Organization is a nonprofit that was created by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941. The purpose of the organization is to provide our troops with entertainment as they serve our country. Local USOs throughout different countries where troops are stationed provide the men and women with entertainment and time to relax from their high stressed situations. However, troops within the Special Forces are left without these simple pleasures because of their remote locations. According to Brian Hargis, the USO was able to make him a hero to troops within the HALO team from 7th Special Forces Group. How? By providing the troops with MEGS.

MEGS
A Mobile Entertainment Gaming System, or MEG, is a self-contained platform for multimedia use. The equipment is placed within a rugged and durable case that troops are able to transport easily. Within each black case, troops will find an Xbox system along with a monitor, controllers, power strip, Xbox Kinect, games, and DVDs. The USO created this idea and brought their plans and ideas to PSI. After working with PSI, MEGS were being shipped to troops in May of 2012. The CEO of PSI, Jeff Bell, had this to say about the project, “PSI supports the warfighter and is pleased to play a small part in bringing some happiness to those who defend our country on a daily basis.”

PSI uses testing and methods for both the electrical design and the exterior case design that are typically used for military combat equipment to ensure the gaming equipment arrives to its destination safely. In 2014 alone, 92 MEGS were shipped to entertain 11,722 troops in areas like Iraq, Africa, and Afghanistan.

Units can request a MEGS by using this form.

At Packaging Strategies Incorporated, we create custom aluminum cases to protect the important equipment held inside. We know how essential a custom aluminum case is when transporting equipment for military and medical purposes. We pride ourselves on creating cases that meet every need of our customer while also exceeding their expectations, at a price that is affordable and reasonable. We are also proud of our service to every arm of the Department of Defense and United States military.

The 71st Anniversary of Pearl Harbor: A Date that will live in Infamy

Friday, December 7th, 2012

7 December 1941. It is “a date that will live in infamy.” It is the date of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. 353 Japanese planes rained down on the unsuspecting Americans at Pearl Harbor. On that infamous date, 2,390 Americans lost their lives, another 1,282 wounded. The attack also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft training ship, and one minelayer, while destroying 188 U.S. aircraft.

The following day, 8 December 1941, the United States officially declared war on Japan. And within three days, Germany and Italy declared war on the U.S., an act reciprocated by the U.S. the same day.

The United States of America had officially entered World War II.
