I was recently contacted by Patriot Surplus, a veteran owned and operated business (owner Steve Berg is a prior service Marine) based out of Carlisle, PA, where they have a retail store. They’ve been in business since 2004 and the operation began in a basement. How can you not support that sort of American entrepreneurial spirit? In the Air Force we never leave a fellow Airman behind, and the same sort of idea applies with supporting our veterans here at home.
Patriot Surplus’ website has a very user friendly interface and is easy to navigate. You can shop by camo pattern, which is helpful when you want branch-specific items. They offer items for those in law enforcement, as well as for outdoor enthusiasts who need camouflage apparel and items for hunting, shooting, and camping. There’s a great selection of multicam items for those with an upcoming deployment.
Many of my BMT-bound readers select a bracelet of some sort to wear as a means of identifying others that are heading to BMT with them. Patriot Surplus has a great selection of 550 cord for those that are making paracord bracelets for that purpose, including some pretty awesome colors.
Patriot Surplus offers free shipping on orders over $79 to the lower 48 states and APO/FPO!
