In Operation Iraqi Freedom, a brilliant battle plan was witnessed by people, brilliantly executed, with superb personnel using magnificent equipments, all supported to perfection. The generosity and patriotism of Nashville, Tennessee-based Military Systems Group has been significant. It has only eight employees, but it accomplishes a tremendous amount, primarily through contracts with the U.S. military and a few select foreign armed forces. Military Systems Group is owned and operated by a couple who, by appearances and demeanor, seem more likely to be local postmistress and preacher than folks in the weapons business.
