Washington, D.C. — On Thursday, June 7, 2007, the Department of Commerce's United States Patent and Trademark (USPTO) will hold its 11th annual Community Day recognizing the many cultures represented in its workforce.

On Community Day, The U.S. Air Force Honor Guard Drill Team will show off the Air Force's heritage of precision and discipline through their large 16-man performance demonstration. The Alexandria police department's SWAT team and fire department's search and rescue will be demonstrating their skills at rappelling down the side of the Edmund Randolph Building on the USPTO campus. They also will display some of their specialized equipment including the Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) and ladder truck.
