I served in the Marine Corps from 2002-2006 and 2008-2009. I deployed in 2005 to Al Qaim, Iraq with 1st CEB C co participating in Operation Iron Fist and Operation Steel Curtain with 3/6 and 2/1. I was honorably discharged in 2006. I was recalled back to the Marine Corps from 2008-2009 to be deployed to Al Taqaddum, Iraq.
Since my time of service, I have felt the responsibility to do more for our Veterans and Gold Star families. I do not want our service members, who gave the ultimate sacrifice, to become a ghost of war. Therefore, I have started a for-purpose business called Colors of Honor to help give back to Gold Star families and to help tell their loved one’s story. First, I will reach out to the families of each of the 34 1st CEB Marines from my unit who were killed in action. As my business expands, I will reach out to as many families as possible.
I am currently accepting worn uniforms (all types...Alphas, blues, cammies....whatever) and making them into flags. I can pay for the shipping cost of donated uniforms. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the flags will be sent to Gold Star families. I will then offer to make the Gold Star families a flag out of their loved one’s uniforms at no charge.
Anyone who would like a flag can purchase one. I can also make a flag out of your own uniforms for a fee.
For any donation please contact us here.
