I am proud of our team both on and off the field. Brocade has extended its reach into the communities around us. We logged nearly 5,000 hours of volunteer time, expanded our Women in Networking (WIN) initiative, and met with legislative officials inWashington D.C.
We've got some great plays coming in the rest of the season. The Company's first 'Federal Forum' will kick off in D.C. to address challenges for federal customers. Our Technology/Analyst Day will explain our new products and technologies as well as layout the financial model for FY13. And of course, Brocadians will maintain their ongoing involvement with community organizations through volunteerism and other corporate responsibility related activities that make Brocade an employer of choice.
But as we head into the July 4th holiday, I am reminded that life isn’t really a game. Whatever one’s country of origin or residence, the respect for the sacrifices of others and the responsibilities that come with independence and democracy are the true goal posts for living.
