S.O.Tech – A Tribute To Chuy Serrano


Chuy Serrano 1962-2014

There is another hole in the ranks at S.O.Tech. An ever present smile, an uplifting sense of humor, and the touch of a true craftsman. For over a decade, Chuy’s blade cut sheets that became the gear that protected and supported Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Officers of the Law. His crafted pieces saw service from the streets of our cities to far away battlefields. He left an impact on the world’s warriors, and he left an impact on our family. It was Chuy’s sweat that built our company, and we stood by him as he fought the disease. A great craftsman and a good friend, he will be missed.

    SO Tech is a great company and people like Chuy helped them build that reputation. My condolences to his family and coworkers.

    However, not to denigrate the intent of the announcement, but it always irks me when a company associated with supplying kit to the military fails to capitalize “Marines” and in failing to do such imparts the impression that their overarching view of “Marines” is directly related to the bottom line. I’m sure that’s not the case with SO Tech, and it is just semantics, but it still irks me.

    • Hello Misha,

      As I’m sure you’ve noticed, Marines isn’t singled out, as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Officers of the Law (LEOs) are also lacking in capitalization. We did post this announcement from S.O.Tech as written, and knowing how supportive and respectful S.O.Tech is of Military and Law Enforcement I’m completely sure it’s a simple oversight.

      I’ve corrected the article to reflect this, and thanks for pointing it out.

    Per generally accepted English grammar, only “Marines” is capitalized, because it is the only proper name. The capitalization of “soldier”, ie: “Soldier”, or capitalizing “Families”, or now, even “Civilians”, is a bullshit PR stunt that only makes the US Army look like illiterates to an educated audience.

    Linguistically, “soldiers” encompasses ALL the branches of service. One of the most common definitions of Marine is, in fact, “sea-going soldier”.

    Vaya con Dios, Chuy.

    Raise a glass to SO Tech. This isn’t something you see from companies any more.
