Continental Tide employees working around the globe took part in raising awareness of breast cancer by wearing pink Continental Tide T-shirts to work. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States only behind skin cancer. Although this disease primarily affects women (1 in every 8), statistics show that the lifetime risk for men to develop breast cancer is 1 in 1,000. A group of employees at Continental Tide’s Virginia Beach office took time to show off the Breast Cancer Awareness T-shirts while an AIT department crew working at a base in Japan pose in front of the USS Blue Ridge LCC-19. Join us and show your support! Let’s spread awareness!!
Mr. Avery Scott was named Employee of the Month for October.

This award is a special thank you to Mr. Scott for his continuing dedication and work hard as part of our AIT team.
