Happy 7th Anniversary to Us!


On May 17, 2008 at 0619 EST, Soldier Systems Daily officially launched, with the mission of bringing the masses the latest and greatest daily news on the tactical industry. 7 years and almost 14,000 posts later, we’ve been hard at work to fulfill that mission. As always, we’d like to thank our readers and advertisers for making the website as great as it is!

Here’s to another 7 years and 14,000 posts!
