Happy Thanksgiving from Mayflower and SSD!

Today is Thanksgiving here in the US, a day when we commemorate the hardships of early settlers of our great land. We also take time to reflect on pur own trials and triumphs. Aptly enough, Mayflower Research and Consulting has provided a prize pack consisting of their new Assault Pack and a UW Gen IV Chest Rig. Both are in MultiCam and made from LiteLok fabric.



Mayflower asked us to find this gear a deserving home and we can’t think of any better group to honor than our readership. To enter, tell us what you’re thankful for in the comments section below.

On Friday the 25th, we’ll randomly draw a winner from the comments for the prize pack.

We will contact the winner via the email address you provide when you post your comment, so it would behoove you to enter a valid address you can access.

One entry per person.

You have up to 7 days to claim your prize after we send the winner email. Unclaimed prizes become forfeit.

Void where prohibited.

    I am thankful for my family and friends. I am thank ful for my friends, who are currently deployed. I am also thankful for the memories I have of my friend, Jared Monti and for the actions of my cousin, Bill Balfour – who both gave their lives fighting for their country. I am also thankful for living in the best country in the world! Say what you may about it, but we still have the best country out-there! If we are so terrible, why is it that everyone wants to move here – or emulate us? It because the U.S., ROCKS!!!

    I am thankful that my family is the center of my world, safe and in my mind as I sit overseas. I am thankful that my art as a warrior is raised by the hearts of other great cohorts, the unceasing skill of our cratfsmen and the feeling in my soul that I take pride as a protector of all that I hold dear -… My Good Name, My Honor as a Professional, and the Pride in beling allowed to defend my Country. I have already spilled tonight’s first drink for the newest 31 Souls and raised another to all our lost brothers. They will live forever. I piss on the memory of terrorists everywhere, may they rot in hell – sent their with the fullest speed from our most violent dispatch.

  27. David H says:

    This year, I am particularly thankful that I am becoming a father in six months. Having faced some trials and tribulations earlier this year, I have been subtly reminded that when one door closes, another opens. I have a beautiful family who I get to spend this joyous holiday with, real friends whose bond is as thick as blood, and most importantly the privilege and opportunity to be at home from now on to share the holidays with my loved ones.

    My time in the Marine Corps has instilled in me a greater sense of humility and gratitude; a sense one cannot possibly obtain or understand until they have been “without.” I am thankful for being able to pursue my goals and ambitions as I see fit and be a leading example to my first child.

    Lastly, I am thankful for those who continue to don our nation’s uniform each and everyday and carry out the mission for those in the fight. I pray that they will be able to find a moment to relax, contact their loved ones and go to sleep with a full stomach of a great meal.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
