“Without the brave efforts of all the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines and their families, this Nation, along with our allies around the world, would not stand so boldly, shine so brightly and live so freely.”

-Lane Evans

 

“I may be compelled to face danger, but never fear it, and while our soldiers can stand and fight, I can stand and feed and nurse them.”

 

-Clara Barton

“Every American soldier wants as much public support as he can possibly have. We fight better knowing that our people back home support us, back us, and understand what we're doing. It's hugely important.”

-John Abizaid

 

Take Care of Soldiers Part II

           In my last article I expressed there is a very real need to protect our soldiers from any source that seeks to exploit our sons and daughters for economic gain. I pointed out examples of how our government can erode a soldier’s personal income by allowing underfunded mandates and inflation to take place. I provided one example of how local law enforcement has targeted soldiers in the past using ticketing as a source of revenue. I provided several examples of how predatory companies target soldiers using unscrupulous business practices, and how parasitic individuals often look at soldiers as an easy mark.

          As I brought up this disturbing information I also went on to state there’s no need to become overly cynical. Although there are dark forces that try to prey on our soldiers, there are significantly more people and organizations that are looking out for the troops. I suggested that AUSA (Association of the United States Army) and the private companies that support this noble cause is a good example that demonstrates how much people care. Allow me to expand my thoughts about AUSA and how it benefits the average soldier.

Financial Tips for Soldiers


Part IV

Financial Tips for Soliders

 In my past articles I have advocated that soldiers should start a savings plan that focuses on index funds, and they should work towards a long range goal of purchasing rental properties.  I’m sure many people may think this sounds too simple to be true, and in some respects they’re right.  To reach your long term goals you will need a well-defined strategy.  Allow me to elaborate on this subject.

My name is John Ottaviano, and I’m the Director of Sales & Marketing at Rothco.  I’ve been at Rothco for 25 years as of last month, supplying retailers around the globe with military and outdoor clothing and accessories.  Previous to working at Rothco, I spent a number of years as a district manager for a regional discount chain, so I know retail by both sides of the fence, and I have a pretty good understanding of the challenges today’s retailers face.

What are the biggest changes you have witnessed in the military retail industry?  Tell me about the opportunities that exist in the military retail industry.

WHY DO YOU ENJOY MOTORCYCLING? 

 


The Motorcycle Safety Foundation states that one of the things that motorcyclists enjoy most is the freedom of riding in the open air.  Everyone who has ever done so would agree: there is absolutely nothing like it. 

 

However, there are several possible drawbacks to riding in the open air whether on a motorcycle, four wheeler, snowboard  or skis. 

Hot or cold weather, raining, insect, debris or dust pelting you in the face can be dangerous as well as uncomfortable.  Personally, when I am driving a four wheeler, I hate the amount of dust blowing in my face. 

One piece of clothing that was developed to help protect the face from all of the above is the Neoprene Face Masks.

Some important benefits include:

Great protection while riding motorcycles, four wheelers, etc

Covering your face and ears during cold weather

Water resistant qualities help keep you dry in wet weather/rain

The fact that the materials are stretchy and they use velcro fastening helps secure the mask to your face tightly.

The vent holes in the face mask enables you to breathe easily

The Neoprene material is thin enough to be comfortable, but thick enough to help prevent surface injuries

In order to help keep our riders safe, Bradleys stocks a wide variety of full and half face neoprene face masks.  Not only are they functional, but they're unique and fun as well.  Some of our most popular styles that we have to offer include various colors of skulls (including glow in the dark!), evil clown, vampire, crash test dummy and many, many more.
