Choosing Belleville Athletic Boots for Rigorous Training
When you are training, there are so many things that contribute to its effectiveness. From wearing the right outfit to the right pair of shoes for the job, everything matters. This means if you are wearing the wrong shoes during your training, range, or garrison use, the effectiveness of the entire routine may get diminished and, in some cases, may also lead to an injury. For instance, if you are wearing a shoe or boot with treads thinner than expected for your next hike, the chance of getting a twisted ankle will greatly increase. Due to these reasons, experts agree that choosing the right athletic training boots is as important as the training or workout regime you are following. And what’s better than a Belleville when you are talking about training athletic boots!
Handmade Military Icon Pens
Today WhataPen Handmade Creations brings you the New Military Icon Pen. I created the Military Icon pens after I received quite a few request from some of my customers that are soldiers. Their issue was the little pen pocket on the BDUs are very small and it seems only bic pens can really fit well. I am a ARMY veteran so I totally understood the issue at hand. I remember having to deal with that on a daily basis and sometimes depending on what pen you put in the little pen pocket you had a hard time getting it out if it didn't have a clip of some sort to hold it out.
Giving back to our troops
Volunteering has been a way of life for me since I was young. I have always donated clothes or when I was younger toys. I think this idea of giving back just kind of stuck with me. Ive done different kinds of volunteer work over the years. Then in 2019 I felt like it had been long enough, about a year in a half since I had last done any kind of volunteer work. I had seen a commercial about the nonprofit Wounded Soldiers and decided to go do some research to see if I can give back with them. In doing this I found Soldiers Angels.
10 Gifts for Newlywed Military Wives
If you're like me, you're getting to an age where you realize that all of your friends are getting married; and trust me when I say I would have never guessed that most of them are marrying guys in the military. To be honest, it's not for me. What I do know though, is that with every deployment I see my friends' husbands embark on, I realize how difficult it is on them as newlyweds. Being there for someone is one of the best things you can do as a friend, but sometimes you want to do something more for your best girl. So, what better way to do that than with a few thoughtful gifts for newlywed military wives?
Coolest Tactical Gadgets for Veterans
Military veterans constitute a unique group among those interested in tactical gear. Not only will they already have hands-on knowledge of almost all kinds of gear, but they can distinguish the higher quality items from those that will probably fail if put through the rigors of daily use or extreme conditions. Yet, even the most seasoned veterans enjoy receiving or discovering the latest and best innovations in tactical gear and/or military gadgets. This is especially true in the modern climate where "prepping" is a popular hobby and one in which all kinds of tactical gear is appearing on a regular basis.
Best Tactical Pens You Didn't Know You Needed
I know the coolest things you can buy at a military surplus store because that's where I go to buy clothes on the cheap. The daytime floor manager gives off a real strong History of Violence vibe. I told him a little about myself––that I have a son in the 9th grade named Jarret and that I'm dipping my toes into online dating—and he said that the best way to impress a date was with one of the best tactical pens on the market. He showed me a pen that had a handcuff key and said, "You never know when you might need this." I asked him what kind of date ends in handcuffs. And he said, "A good one!" We both laughed, I bought that pen, and on my way to my car I wondered if he'd ever killed anyone.
Best Tactical Wallets You Should Consider Getting
I know the coolest things you can buy at a military surplus store because it's the most affordable place near my home to go clothes shopping. So, I spend plenty of time chatting with the employees and some of the military vets who hang out around there. They're always telling me what I need to get, and since I'm always trying to impress my son Jarret and we regularly go camping, I ended up buying one of the best tactical wallets around. It wasn't an easy choice because there were so many wallets in the running! But, being one of the best everyday tactical essentials, I had to get my hands on one.
Best Tactical Belts That Keep You from Losing Your Stuff
Belts are important for most situations. I need a belt just to keep my pants from falling down, let alone for when I'm on a rescue mission or in the field. Belts are important for most service members due to their reliability to hold items that could potentially save your life. Tactical belts are just as important as other military accessories because of their ability to hold flashlights, water, or weapons around your waist.
Best Everyday Tactical Essentials
Gear aficionados love tactical stuff—and why wouldn't they? It's as utilitarian as it gets. Whether it's the best tactical backpacks on the market, the coolest tactical vests, or even tactical tomahawks, a good tactical item will always find a way to be useful.
Best Tactical Gloves to Protect Your Hands
You may say to yourself: "I don't need them," and that's all well and good until you catch a splinter on one of the several different climbing walls, or burn the inside of your palm on any ropes and ladders amid intense training. I thought the same damn unfortunate idea when first being shipped to basic, and boy do I wish I had one of these with me my first weeks. "It was hell" would be an understatement, to say the least, but there's a silver lining to my mistake: warning you all not to do the same (and, in the process, discovering for myself the best gloves to save my pretty hands from harm).
