Did you know that advancements to America’s high-tech Army are developed right here in Massachusetts?
We welcome you to come meet the men and women of the U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center (SSC), located in Natick, whose sole mission is to provide America’s soldiers with the best equipment in the world.
You’ll be able to see the world through night-vision glasses, check out the innovative personal air conditioning systems that keep our soldiers cool in the desert, and sample some surprisingly tasty MREs (Meal, Ready to Eat) for yourselves.
This is an extraordinary display that shouldn’t be missed. It’s open to the public, so be sure to let others know about it!
We look forward to seeing you there!
