Vertx Partners With Dakota Meyer To Develop Apparel In Support of FTWGA

Monday, February 24th, 2014

Cincinnati, Ohio – Vertx is proud to announce a partnership with Dakota Meyer to develop a co-branded line of apparel in support of For Those Who Gave All. (www.ftwga.com) FTWGA is the brainchild of Meyer, the first living Marine in three decades to receive the Medal of Honor. The overarching goal of FTWGA is to create awareness for our nation’s military and first responders while providing support to various related non-profit charitable organizations. Vertx Managing Director Joe Yorio commented: “We are both honored and humbled to be collaborating with US Marine veteran and Medal Of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer to launch a cobranded line of apparel endorsing For Those Who Gave All. This was a perfect fit for Vertx being that many of our employees are veterans and our parent company, Fechheimer, has been making uniforms for the last 170+ years. Our sister brand Flying Cross currently produces several uniforms for our military, as well as numerous government agencies and many law enforcement departments.” Yorio goes on to add, “A major contributing factor to this overall partnership was that Dakota was not just attaching his name to this endeavor; he wanted to be heavily involved in product development, marketing and sales and is committed to the success of FTWGA. This hands-on style is very complimentary with our vision for the expansion of the Vertx brand and the engagement of our Pro Staff to contribute to our overall product design and wear testing. We look forward to a successful partnership and are privileged to be an advocate for the For Those Who Gave All brand.” The first launch of products is available for pre-order with future collaborative designs in the works. Five new t-shirt designs can be found at www.ftwga.com and http://www.wearvertx.com/FTWGA-For-Those-Who-Gave-All.aspx.

Awhile back we told you that Craig Sawyer and Steve Reichert were going to provide training together. Now, Steve is working with Medal Of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer. The course is being held at a facility in Maysville that is well laid out. It’s very nice and only about 25 minutes from Jacksonville, NC.

Are you tired of attending Tac-T-Cool carbine courses where you dump inordinate amounts of rounds into a piece of paper at stone throwing distances? Have you ever wanted to actually employ the principals of rifle marksmanship to accurately put rounds on a target hundreds of yards away? If you’re one of the many great Americans out there who have the will and desire to become the best at everything you do then this course is for you. During the SRT Rifleman’s course you will acquire the rifle marksmanship principals that will allow you to accurately and effectively engage multiple targets from 50-500 yards and beyond. You will find yourself being constantly pushed by our staff to make every shot count, and make every shot a learning experience! Remember, there is no such thing as “advanced” shooters… just shooters who can apply the basic marksmanship principals quickly and effectively. That being said if you never really master the marksmanship principals in the first place how can you expect tp effectively employ them under stress when lives are on the line?

The course is being held Maysville, NC, November 2nd – 3rd, 2013.

Dakota Meyer Drops Suit Against BAE

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Yesterday, Dakota Meyer has reached an accommodation with BAE Systems’ OASYS business unit and dropped his suit against both them and former supervisor Bobby McReight. We are happy to hear that this has been worked out. Reading through court filings by both parties this looked to be a situation that would have bloodied the noses of all involved. It’s a shame that it ever came to this. Dakota Meyer is an American hero and looks to have a bright future ahead of him. Additionally, OASYS builds some of the best IR technologies available and we hope to see them continue along this path for the foreseeable future.

BAE provided this statement:

ARLINGTON, Virginia – Sgt. Dakota Meyer and BAE Systems OASYS have resolved their dispute amicably. Sgt. Meyer has filed a dismissal of the case today with the court. The following statements have been issued reflecting closure of this matter:

Sgt. Dakota Meyer:

“I went to work for BAE Systems OASYS because of my great respect for the important work it does to protect the men and women of the U.S. military.

BAE Systems has demonstrated its support for veterans and their families through its generous contributions to the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation and many other ways.

During my time there I became concerned about the possible sale of advanced thermal scopes to Pakistan. I expressed my concerns directly and respectfully. I am gratified to learn that BAE Systems OASYS did not ultimately sell and does not intend to sell advanced thermal scopes to Pakistan.

BAE Systems OASYS and I have settled our differences amicably. I also have made the decision to not go forward with litigation against Bobby McCreight. I wish the best for Bobby and a successful future supporting our troops.”

BAE Systems OASYS

“We are pleased that we reached closure in this matter.

BAE Systems has the highest respect for Sgt. Dakota Meyer, who exemplifies the qualities that make the men and women of our armed services the best in the world. We owe him and the many thousands of others who have served and sacrificed for our country our deepest thanks.

BAE Systems, Inc. is proud to have an established track record as a trusted and responsible partner to our many U.S. military and intelligence community customers. Our more than 40,000 employees, including many thousand veterans, come to work every day focused on meeting the needs of those who serve. We are committed to continuing the vital work we do to support our customers in accomplishing their mission.
