1. Black Rifle Coffee Company
If you haven’t tried Black Rifle Coffee, you’re missing out! Black Rifle Coffee Company was founded by Veteran, Evan Hafer, a former Army Green Beret.
Evan took his love for coffee roasting and the US military and grew this military themed company from the ground up. What differentiates him from other veteran owned coffee companies is he roasts his own coffee, he doesn’t buy and re-sell.
Valor Magazine had the honor of sitting down with Evan this summer to learn more about him and BRCC. You can watch the whole interview HERE.
BRCC’s Veteran Day Bundle that includes your choice one handmade mug and your choice one bag of Freedom Roast, one bag of Inert Decaf Coffee, or one box of Freedom Blend Coffee Rounds.
Founder of ZZZBears, Justin Baum, spent seven years writing the recruitment commercials for the United States Marine Corps. After meeting countless brave and selfless members of our armed forces, Justin was inspired to create ZZZBears, a sleep system to help ease the night time anxiety of young children whose parents are deployed. His sleep system includes a cuddly bear, door hang, ‘sleep tight oath’, and a reward sticker for children who sleep through the night. Learn More HERE.
