Turning 23: A Look in the Rearview Mirror

As PRofessional Solutions, LLC celebrates its 23rd birthday this month, we wanted to 23-birthdayshare a few memories from the highlight reel of our company’s history.

Most Unusual Assignments

With 23 years of assignments, there have been many wonderful clients and projects, but these two stand out as the most remarkable:

NOAA’s Raising of the USS Monitor, 2001-02

The only occasion where the temp wasn’t working on dry land. This job included escorting reporters by ship off the coast of Cape Hatteras, NC to where Navy divers worked in conjunction with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to recover the shipwrecked, historic USS Monitor. It had been resting on the ocean floor since 1862.


American Red Cross Relief Flight, 1999

In preparation for a flight bringing supplies to Macedonia during the Kosovo Conflict, our temp was doing media advance work since the President of the American Red Cross and a group of reporters would be on board to visit the area for 48 hours. Shortly before departure, the temp was invited to join the delegation since his background included military public affairs experience. This was the only assignment where one of our temps needed a passport for the job. Luckily, his was up to date and he was ready to travel at a moment’s notice!
