Here are a few of our favorite Veteran Owned business products we love:
Oscar Mike was started by Marine Corporal Noah Currier after he suffered a severe paralyzing injury and decided to raise funds by selling t-shirts inspired by his brotherhood in the Marine Corps. Oscar Mike has now become a full-fledged American-made lifestyle apparel brand that supports their non-profit foundation. 100% of the proceeds and donations from apparel sales go to help rehabilitate injured Veterans through adaptive sporting events.
Oscar Mike has donated one of their Lifeline Flex chord wraps and an Oscar Mike t-shirt to the MarchOnVets community.
It all started between two friends; Dale King and Renee Wallace. Dale is a veteran of OIF III & IV, and owner of PSKC CrossFit. Renee is a mother of 3, married to a former Kiowa pilot, and a member of PSKC. In addition to her “real” job and chasing around 3 kids under the age of 10, Renee was making all natural lotions and hand creams for the female members of PSKC.
They have also increased their product line to include skin and beard care items. Their goal now is to build a small facility in their hometown of Portsmouth, OH.
We're including Doc Spartan's grenade soap in our prize pack. The scent is "inspired by the fresh dew on the parade field grass, right before you got smoked by a crusty Platoon Sergeant."
Heroes Vodka was founded in 2009 by Travis McVey, a U.S. Marine Corps Veteran who proudly served as a Presidential Honor Guard from 1989-1992. An innovative and determined entrepreneur, Travis endured the life-changing tragedy of a good friend dying in combat in the War Against Terror in Afghanistan. The experience paved the way for Travis to realize the American dream of owning a business, a business that would enable him to continue to serve his country. Travis's vision was to develop a brand to partner with well-known Veteran organizations. His mission was to help Veterans get the care they deserve.
Heroes Vodka donates 25% of every e-commerce purchase to AMVETS to develop community assistance programs for American Veterans, active duty military, and their families. Cheers to our heroes!
We're including a Heroes Voda military style canteen in our prize pack. (No, we're not sending you vodka.) This canteen is perfect for enjoying a cocktail in the woods, at the lake or at a party.
