Pelican™ Protects The United States Flag. Colors of Honor
TORRANCE, CA - December 11, 2007 —In a show of solidarity with the men and women who protect the nation, Pelican™ Products, a global leader in the design and manufacture of virtually indestructible cases for protecting valuable equipment and advanced lighting systems, is providing a case to protect the fabled United States Flag. Colors of Honor.
“We are extremely honored to have our case protect such a significant symbol,” said Lyndon Faulkner, President and CEO of Pelican Products. “The flag continues to serve as a stark reminder for vigilance and strength in this great country and Pelican is proud to stand as a partner in this important venture.”
Renowned for their virtually indestructible cases that protect expensive equipment, Pelican Products is providing the organizers with a 1495 Protector™ Case to shield the flag from the elements. The case and flag (dubbed Pelican ONE when the flag is traveling and protected by the case) are scheduled to travel the nation as a constant tribute to the men and women who protect the nation.
The United States Flag. Colors of Honor flew over the Texas State Capital while the United States was under attack on September 11, 2001. To honor the nation, the flag was given to Chris Heisler who organized officers from around the nation to transport the flag along with flags from other states to New York City in the longest police motorcade in U.S. history.
At the end of its journey in 2001, officers and Honor Guard presented flags from around the nation to the Governor of New York at New York Police Headquarters and the flag flew during memorial services and World Trade Center recovery efforts. Family members of fallen first responders then requested that this single flag act as a symbol to honor all American heroes. It has since traveled across the world to wherever American soldiers are stationed in the war on terror and proudly flies in continuous tribute.
Pelican Protector Cases offer a fully-stackable, trademarked dual-band design and open cell-core construction that helps it protect sensitive equipment from some of the most extreme conditions on Earth. Additional standard features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dust and waterproof seal, and an automatic Gore-TEX® pressure equalization valve that stops moisture from entering the case and prevents vacuum-lock so the case opens easily at any altitude. As with all Pelican products, the cases arebacked by a Legendary Lifetime Guarantee of Excellence: “You Break It, We Replace It…Forever.”™
