Brian Hooper, vice president of MSI, stated "It's the very least we can do to show our support of the men and women who serve in today’s military forces. I feel as though it is my responsibility to help those who are currently serving. We are very happy to show our support". MSI joins a group of Fortune 500 companies, state and federal agencies and thousands of America’s employers in demonstrating support for our armed forces.
