<strong>Woking, England &mdash; May 9</strong><br />Working for a communications equipment manufacturer, communications expert Pilgrims Group Ltd. was enlisted to provide a team of communication and technical specialists to train the U.S. Army in using specialist communications systems and provide maintenance and installation support, often in extreme conditions. <br /><br />The U.S. Army presented the manufacturer with the Certificate of Appreciation for its "amazing support" of 2nd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment during its operations in Iraq from 2006 to 2008. The certificate, presented by Squadron Commander LTC Calvert, praised both the manufacturer and Pilgrims teams for its "generosity in supplying the Battalion with necessary communication equipment, as well as providing both troubleshooting and repairs to over fifty items, most of them on the spot." <br /><br />The contract involved Pilgrims&#39; communications experts working extremely long hours and under arduous conditions. They were commended: "Your unselfishness and tireless efforts were truly appreciated by all of the soldiers and officers of the &lsquo;Stallion&rsquo; Battalion. Your contributions will greatly impact the quality of life of these soldiers and set the standard for future combat operations in that area." <br /><br />A representative from the client praised: "The Pilgrims team became subject matter experts and have provided first class support to this customer." <br /><br />Pilgrims Group Managing Director Bill Freear commented: "Pilgrims are immensely proud of the commitment displayed by our technical and communications experts in support of the U.S. Army. Our client is a key contractor and critical to the success of the U.S. Army, in Iraq and we are pleased to provide them with the expertise required for such an important operation." <br /><br />Freear continued: "Our teams continually operate in the world&#39;s most hostile environments, including Iraq, Afghanistan and Nigeria. Our experience in all aspects of communications, security risk management and logistical support operations in high-risk areas makes us well placed to meet the toughest and most demanding contracts." <br />
