Gateway Supply, a Columbia, S.C.-based wholesaler, sent SUPPLY HOUSE TIMES this photo of two of its employees who have been stationed in Iraq for about nine months. Charles Edwards, left, works in inside sales at the company's Hartsville, S.C., branch and Jack Gregory, right, is branch manager for its Myrtle Beach, S.C., location. Both are in the Reserve and were called to duty the end of last year.

“We are proud to know and work with these men,” a company spokeswoman said. “Everyone here at Gateway prays for them and their families and we look forward to their safe return. We also look forward to their active duty back with Gateway Supply.”
