    New Aerospace Group Operating Unit Announced

  The following message was sent to all Aerospace Group employees by Aerospace Group President Pete Green on Sept. 28.


  Almost three years ago we began our efforts to take the Aerospace Team to the next level. As part of achieving that goal
  we focused on expanding Wyle’s long-time support to the U.S. Air Force, as well as aligning our many other outstanding
  offerings that could be potentially supportive to the Air Force mission.

  As a result, the scope of our work has grown as Wyle has been selected to support the Air Force in carrying out their
  mission in several areas, including systems engineering, electronic, cyber, and aeronautical systems. This growing
  tasking, coupled with the potential benefit we believe we can bring to our Air Force customers, brings us to a very
  exciting announcement.

  Effective January 1, 2012, the Aerospace Group will stand up a new operating unit specifically focused on supporting our Air
  Force systems customers. Our new Air Force Systems Operating Unit will be composed of our Northwest Florida, Mission
  Systems (Northeast Region), and Dayton Sectors and will be part of our Technology and Test Division led by Bert Johnston.

  Please join me in congratulating Bert and the Air Force Ops and BD team for having the vision, dedication, and
  entrepreneurial spirit to reach this milestone.


  Peter Green
  President, Aerospace Group

                                Are you participating in a health care flexible spending account (FSA)?
                                If so, evaluate whether you need to change your contribution amounts

  Alex Clarke                   for reimbursement with FSA funds, unless it’s insulin or prescribed by a

   Tips for a Safe Halloween - Part 1

The following information is provided by LifeWorks, Wyle’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP).

Halloween is an exciting time for children. In addition to bags full of candy, there are costumes, makeup, and
the thrill of trick-or-treating. Some families celebrate Halloween by hosting a party at home or attending a
school or community celebration, while others opt for traditional trick-or-treating. No matter how you choose
to enjoy the day (or night), here are a few tips you may be able to use to help your child have fun and stay safe
this Halloween.

Young children should not be allowed to carve pumpkins. Instead, have them draw designs with a marker
and then do any carving yourself. Pumpkins with burning candles inside can be fire hazards, so keep these
decorating tips in mind:
        • Use glo-sticks, flashlights, or small votive candles to light pumpkins. Tapered candles can be a fire
        • If you decorate indoors with jack-o-lanterns that have votive candles in them, put them on a sturdy
         table or surface away from flammable objects like curtains or other decorations. Make sure that they
          are displayed at a height that young children can’t reach. Never leave a lit candle unattended.
        • Don’t put pumpkins with lit candles on stairs or walkways where costumes can brush against a flame.

Choosing the right costume will help your child avoid fire and tripping hazards.
       • For a safer costume, help your child select these items:
                > Costumes and wigs with ‘flame-resistant’ on the label.
                > Clothes that are short enough to avoid tripping.
                > Reflector strips and a flashlight for after dark.
                > Makeup instead of a mask for better visibility. Choose makeup that is washable and non-toxic,
                  and test it on a small patch of the child’s skin first.
                > Sturdy, well-fitting shoes. Avoid high heels borrowed from an adult.
       • Choose safe costume props. Avoid toys and props that shoot any sort of projectile. Make sure “weapons”
        such as pirate swords or light sabers are made of non-flammable materials and have no sharp edges,
         protruding points, or knobs.
       • Don’t allow your child to wear decorative contact lenses bought without a prescription. Using decorative
         lenses -- such as the “cat’s eye” lenses popular at Halloween -- without a prescription can lead to
         eye injuries.
       • Attach your child’s name and address to the inside of his costume. If visible on the outside, a name makes
         it easier for a stranger to pretend to know your child.
       • Add a strip of reflective tape to the costume or treat bag.
       • Remember that costumes -- and the entire experience of Halloween -- may be frightening for some
         children. Talk about the holiday ahead of time and take your cues from your children.
          If they don’t want to greet trick-or-treaters or dress up, it’s OK.
