Bradley’s Military was established in 1992 by William G. McKinney in Watertown, New York.  Their goal was to become a “One Stop Soldier Shop”.  Over the last 20 years, with the support of family, friends, the loyal patronage of the Fort Drum Military and Civilian community, as well as an even larger online community, Bradley’s has grown to much more than just a Military Store.

Mr. McKinney contributes his success to the premium he places on exceptional customer service.  According to Mr. McKinney “I concentrate on forming long lasting business relationships rather than profit maximization or closing individual sales. My philosophy is if you concentrate on satisfying your customer's needs with superior service everything else will fall into place."  Mr. McKinney was a Lieutenant in the United States Army Infantry prior to founding Bradley’s Military and wanted to bring his customer service skills into play for his fellow service personnel. 

The Civilian and Military Open House is just an extension of Bradley’s commitment to an exceptional customer experience.  In addition to refreshments, including a 20th Anniversary Birthday cake, Bradley’s will have family friendly activities such as Bean Bag Grenade Toss, Pluck-A-Military-Duck game, a Dunking Booth and Door Prizes.  Many of Bradley’s vendors will also be on hand with information on new products as well as additional giveaways.


Brandon Sweet, #24, will be on hand with his Modified Dirt Car to sign autographs.  Brandon was the 2008 Can Am Motorsports Park Sportsman Champion and the 2009 SUNY Canton Sportsman Champion.
