In 2008 our President and Founder, Michael Gendich Sr, found out that his oldest grandson, Roland Gendich, had enlisted in the US Army and serve in the war effort in the Middle East. Roland returned safely after a one year tour in Iraq. We all had the pleasure of attending his wedding to his high school sweetheart in October of 2009. Roland is currently on active duty in Alaska. He is awaiting word to find out if he will be needed again in the effort against Afghanistan. Please join Metalmite in our prayers for him and all our troops as they bravely protect our country and each of us everyday!
