Here’s a problem with army navy clothing. It doesn’t come in enough colors. It’s always with the brown and the olive etc. Sometimes we want a little hue in our military clothing selection. Not everyone who admires the military or is a member thereof dislikes color and pigment.

I think this is clearly evidenced already by how well pink camo and pink military clothes have sold over the last decade. There is a real and genuine demand for army navy apparel that contains tints other than tan and grey.

There is a clear and present demand. And yet there is very little supply. Isn’t that the very foundation of a free enterprise society. Supply and demand. If there is a demand for it it is lucrative to supply it. And yet still there are no purple plaid army t-shirt or lime green air force caps. Is it such a leap to make? If pink is popular and selling well, do you really need to be convinced about adding other whimsical colors? Are army navy suppliers really this slow?

One site has yellow and orange and baby blue and all kinds of other good stuff. Never fear. They have traditional colors as well. I especially like the purple stuff. Purple military themed clothing is hard to find. Or should I say, it was hard to find. Now it’s pretty easy.

Emergency Survival Preparedness

Disaster happen unexpectedly. I ought to know. Me and mine were right at the heart of the Hurricane Sandy disaster. It was brutal to say the least. People nowadays, unless they’ve been in the military, have no idea about emergency preparedness.

Our lifestyle has become so soft and cushy. We have our internet and tv on demand and warm cozy beds. We live in a luxury our ancentors couldn’t even imagine. As technology and automation have overtaken our world, survival skills and emergency readiness have been forsaken by most.

We simply assume the power will be on. That first responders will save us. That the disaster won’t be that bad. But the fact is, it can be that bad. And lately it often is.

Our environment and climate have been undergoing changes for the worse. The weather is becoming more and more violent and unpredictable. Smart people want to be ready. To keep their families safe.

Doing so isn’t all that hard if you follow the examples set forth my the American military forces. They always know what to do in any situation.

The first task is to aquire the essential supplies. Which is easy. Shop any repultable military store for all that you will need and more. Next step, educate yourself and your loved one in the critical survival tasks. Like making fire, swimming, hunting and fishing. And don’t forget to get yourself a sturdy generator at the local hardware supply.

army-shirts-khaki-army-logo-t-shirt_designI don’t know about you, but where I come from the Army means something special. Men and women who dedicate their lives to preserving the luxuries most of us take for granted. People who risk their lives in the pursuit of freedom for all.

An army is a fighting force, but an army is also a peace keeping regime. They can be hard and they can be soft. That’s part of the beauty of it. When two opposites collide wonderful things tend to happen.

The Army is an amazing collection of people from all over the country. From all different cultures and backgrounds. With a huge variety of hopes and dreams of their own. But at their core they are all, each one of them, Americans.

The Army is the ultimate expression of American unity. It is the personification of the ‘Great Melting Pot’. Where Mexican-Americans, Italian-Americans, Afro-Americans and all other kinds of good people come together to join forces to defend what we love and hold dear. It’s quite beautiful really when you think of it in these terms.

For all our many differences, when it really matters, when it counts most. Good men and women are truly able to come together and become a single unified force for the defence of our diverse and collective nation. Both in the Army as well all the brave branches of our military forces.
