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 to live in such a great country that allows everyone regardless of race, creed, or color to live and enjoy all of the freedoms that we frequently take for granted. It is a blessing to be able to share our beliefs without fear of negative reprisals. I am proud to be an American and proud of all of our men and women of the military that that make personal and family sacrifices in order to preserve all of the freedoms that we enjoy on a daily basis.

    I am thankful to be an American!

  18. Tom L. says:

    I am thankful every day, not just one, for my family, my health, my freedom, and my friends. Without any of those I would not be here today, and I am reminded of this every time I think about them. I am thankful for the men and women who selflessly serve in the Military, Fire Department, Law Enforcement, and Emergency Services. Without them, we would never be prepared for the “unknown unknowns.”

    Thanksgiving is just another reason to get together and reminisce in the memories that we have made together, and to smile and the memories we have yet to make. But we should all be thankful and gracious for everything that we have, every day that we have it.
