Please Buy Cool Stuff from

Our guest blogger for is Stephanie Stradley (@StephStradley on Twitter) who we've asked to helm the 3DMilitaryWear blog for a while. We enjoy her writing. We hope you do too.

I've always wanted to take over a blog for a great company run by nice people I love.

The owners of 3DMilitaryWear are good friends of mine and asked me to write whatever I wanted that is even semi-relevant to their business for their blog. Excellent!

I like using the internet to do fun, interesting, cool things for people, and that is what I intend to do in this space.

This is Me Doing Advertising For a Great Local Company

Before doing real writing, I'd like to do a quick ad of why I think you should buy cool stuff from them via their direct-to-consumer website

I've toured their wholesale facility in Houston and appreciated the quality, variety, and price of their gear. 

It is impossible to overstate how good the quality of their products are. For example, the military sports jerseys, both baseball and football style ones, are so far superior to most sports jerseys I've seen and the pricing on them seems very fair for the quality, which is not my feeling about most jerseys.

The 3DMilitaryWear "About Us" page lists most of the ways that they are awesome, so I don't have to repeat that.

A Family-Run Business

The main thing? This is a family-run company that employs 30+ Houstonians producing and shipping licensed military apparel and gear. I didn't realize that when you purchase officially licensed gear, under Federal law the royalty money goes to the U.S. Military Morale, Welfare, and Recreation programs.

Interested in 100% Made in the USA military wear? They've got a huge selection.

The wholesale side of the business sells to select retailers throughout the country. Their website is a way that they can also sell their products straight to consumers. But people won't purchase from their website if they can't find in the crowd of resellers and monolith companies on Google searches. 

So, I am not sure how much I can help fix that, but I'm going to try my best.

Support Vets

Anyway, this year Veterans Day is Friday, November 11th. The best way to honor veterans is not just through thanks but by businesses supporting them through employment opportunities and making sure government promises of health care, education and support are fulfilled efficiently and effectively to them and their families. 

Usually, Veterans Day isn't really known as a gift giving day. But if you want to find a practical, or cool, or inexpensive gift for the Veteran in your life--especially if it is a gift to yourself--I would like to get you a discount on these already very reasonably priced items on this website.

Please Go Buy Something Nice If You Can

Through Monday, November 14th, if you enter VETSDAY on checkout, you get a 15% off discount on your purchase. Shipping is free if you order is over $100.

This year, I gave my Vietnam Veteran dad an Air Force baseball jersey and a hat from the website. The older he gets, the more attention he pays to Veterans Day events, for many meaningful reasons you likely could guess. Both my mom and dad loved the gifts, and he is excited to wear them next Friday. The hat, he is already wearing a lot.

Please browse all the cool stuff they have at 3DMilitaryWear. If you end up getting something for yourself or others, please feel free to send me a link to them @StephStradley on Twitter. Or better yet, tweet me a picture of you wearing the gear.
