A Salute to My Father Uncles and Grandfathers on Veterans Day
Though I have not personally served in the military, I humbly reached the rank of Eagle Scout as a youth. As a child and well into adulthood, grew up in the company of military heroes who have shared their stories of sacrifice, insights, memorabilia and instilled in me an immeasurable respect for the fighting men and women of this great country.
My family’s lineage dates back to the 2nd Mayflower’s voyage to the new world that we now know as the United States of America. His heritage includes a considerable share of Iroquois Indian blood and extensive history of defending freedom that begins with the French-Indian and Revolutionary War and includes every call-to-arms to date.

I have a great appreciation for all of the efforts his family has contributed to the military which has resulted in allowing all Americans, including myself, the opportunity to attend college, care for our families, and strive for our American Dream.
Needless to say, I was drawn to create military designs and have been doing so for over 20 years. At Vision-Strike-Wear.Com Im lucky to be creating amazing, unique and dare I say, “bad-ass” designs for the military.
VSW asked me to share my family’s military lineage. Below is list of my known ancestors both past and present who have served…

Why The Blue Falcon?
The falcon is a predator. Blue is the color of the sky and the last thing you want to experience is a bird set on your 6 to devour you so the Blue Falcon seems rather appropriate given the nature of its breeding and what it was designed by nature to do!
“A falcon is any one of 37 species of raptor in the genusFalco, widely distributed on all continents of the world.Peregrine falcons have been recorded diving at speeds of 200 miles per hour (320 km/h), making them the fastest-moving creatures on Earth. Other falcons include the gyrfalcon, lanner falcon, and the merlin. Some small falcons with long narrow wings are called hobbies, and some which hover while hunting are called kestrels. The falcons are part of the family Falconidae, which also includes the caracaras, laughing falcon, forest falcons, and falconets.” (Source: Wikipedia)
