We here at SSD are always eager to assist with the endeavors of Veterans in business, which is why we’re introducing New Man Revolution, a company founded by two US Military Veterans and a massage therapist, and their new product, Manpoo. Snicker-inducing name aside, Manpoo is an all-natural shampoo made of coconut-based cleansers, essential oils, aloe vera, and green tea extract, while being free of artificial fragrances, parabens, and sulfates. Manpoo currently comes in two varieties, ‘Going Commando’ (seen above) and ‘Firm Handshake’.

To top it off, New Man Revolution currently donates 5% of their net profit to NY-based Veteran’s foundation called America’s Vet Dogs.

About Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F):
The Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F) is a 501(c)3 non-profit, 100% volunteer, charitable organization that generates funds for the families of wounded or killed Special Operations Forces (SOF).

Our mission is to “fill in the gaps” of the care of the Special Operations Forces (SOF) community. We raise money via events and unique engagements; linking donors, industry, and SOF end users together. Funds generated from the events support Brain Injury Treatment not covered by Tri-care or the VA, SOF Gold Star Kids Camps, SOF Marriage counseling, and emergency needs as they arise. Once we have covered out internally funded initiatives, we donate like-run charitable organizations that support the Special Operations Community.

We are average American’s who care deeply about the Special Operations Community, and we created SOC-F to make a difference in the lives of the families of those who have given so much.

About American Defense MFG:
American Defense Manufacturing LLC was founded with an idea and a lot of hard work. What followed was the QD Auto-lock that has become the standard for QD mounting hardware. All ADM products are 100% designed and built in America.

All of our products are designed by shooters with one goal in mind – quality.

Moving forward, we have evolved into a premier manufacturer of AR-15’s that we consider “The Gentleman’s Work Gun.” With a high level of attention to detail, an eye for style, but a demand for performance, our UIC line of rifles are serious tools, for serious people.

About Deadbird Society:
Deadbird Society began in 2014 as a place for a few friends to come together online to share a love of the outdoors, gear, and all things Arc’teryx. It has grown rapidly as more and more people join to share their passion for the brand and the lifestyle. In two short years, Deadbird Society is about to surpass 3,000 members and has grown amongst the online gear communities as the preeminent place to not only learn more about Arc’teryx, but also buy, sell, and trade gear amongst like-minded individuals. Many Arc’teryx employees, from retail stores to corporate (both commercial and LEAF), have become members and often share product knowledge and insight, as well as offer a peek behind the curtain at upcoming product lines.

Deadbird Society is also deeply involved with Special Operations Care Fund (SOC-F), and for the past two years has actively participated with various fundraising projects (patches, shirts, challenge coins, raffles, and auctions) to donate directly to SOC-F and support the families of our special operations community. DBS has partnered with Arc’teryx and numerous other companies to raffle and auction items… but more importantly, raise awareness for SOC-F and the work they do.

Heroes on the Water

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

This is the story of a 19-year military policeman, Jason Austin, who was injured in an explosion when his vehicle hit an IEDs. On top of the serious physical injuries he faced from the accident, he suffered from post traumatic stress. A phone call inviting Jason to go kayak fishing forever changed his life. He was able to leave his troubles on shore and gain his freedom back through nature.

Heroes on the Water helps our nation’s warriors and veterans decompress from the stresses associated with combat and the physical rigors of rehabilitation. The organization serves 29,619 warriors and family members and has reduced overall stress by 56%. To learn more, visit www.heroesonthewater.org.

Thank you to Wilderness Systems, a premium kayak fishing brand and a long-time supporter of the nonprofit organization, Heroes on the Water for sharing this story with us.

How Cool Is That?

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

I really like Thirty Second Out’s ‘Victory’ print, depicting actor Robert Duvall in his iconic role as Col Kilgore in ‘Apocalypse Now’. Apparently, so does he.  He signed one of the prints and it will be auctioned off to raise money for the World of Honor fund early next year, but you can get yours now at thirtysecondsout.com/products/poster-victory.
