"A nation that forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten."
War on Drugs Medal
"Cocaine is a nuclear bomb I'm going to drop on America." - Carlos Lehder
The War on Drugs is America's second longest war, but hasn't received the recognition it deserves. We created the War on Drugs Service Medal to honor the duty and sacrifice of the United States Armed Forces (including Active, Reserve, Guard, and Auxiliary) and State Military Forces for general service in the War on Drugs from the 18th of June 1971 to present.
The Alamo Flag
"..our flag still waves proudly from the walls.." - LTC William Travis
The Alamo's last stand echoes in eternity. What has remained a mystery is the flag Travis was referring to in is legendary call to arms. We created The Alamo Flag to finally offer a solution, and honor the 213 Texans that gave their last full measure of devotion.
"...to care for him who shall have borne the battle; and for his widow, and his orphan..." - Abraham Lincoln
"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water." - Loren Eiseley
Since 1985, over 20,000 children have lost a parent serving in the United States Armed Forces to combat, training, disease, and suicide. Their loss can never be filled, but their future doesn't have to be jeopardized. Our water is pure. Our mission is simple: 100% of profit funds scholarships for Gold Star children.
"America leads. We are the indispensable nation. Our military is the best in the history of the world. When trouble comes up anywhere in the world; a typhoon in the Philippines; an earthquake in Haiti; they don't call Beijing; they don't call Moscow; they call us. That's how we roll. And that's what makes this America." - President Obama
Lost in the shadow of combat operations is the vital duty of the United States Armed Forces and State Military Forces in the War on Disaster. While incomparable to the sacrifice of combat, man-made and natural disasters are defined by their own horror; inflicting more civilian casualties than the War on Terror, World War I, World War II, Cold War, Civil War, Indian Wars, and Revolutionary War combined — and counting.
COLD WAR CAMPAIGNS
"A problem well-stated is half-solved." - Charles Kettering
Words matter. The Cold War is the most misunderstood war in American history. We hope to change that. The United States and Soviet Union fought the Cold War in over 50 major campaigns primarily consisting of wars between other countries — a war of wars. By supplying each side with resources, the United States and Soviet Union indirectly fought each other in most of them. In 4 campaigns, American forces significantly participated: the Berlin Blockade, Korean War, Vietnam War, and Grenada Invasion. In 1 campaign, Soviet forces significantly participated: the Soviet–Afghan War. In 2 campaigns American and the Soviet forces directly faced-off: the Cuban Missile Crisis and Space Race.
"To me, half the war is a memory of trees; fallen and tortured trees...and formed the memorial to many efforts of arms." - LT Richard Kelly
War Tree is a military memorial dedicated to American service members that have been killed in action. Inspired by the scorched landscape of the deadliest battle in American history, the shattered branches are adorned with dog-tags of the services members from each city the tree is “planted” in. Our dream is a nationwide "forest" that honors all 666,441 Americans — and counting.
