The fabric of our Nation is woven with the sacrifices of our veterans. In recognition of selfless sacrifice, this Grateful Nation Vest honors the brave men and women who have defended freedom throughout the history of the United States of America. Each authentically colored stripe represents a service ribbon awarded to veterans of historical conflicts in which our country has engaged:
• World War II Asiatic Pacific Campaign
• World War II Europe-Africa-Middle East Campaign
• Korean Service
• US Vietnam Service
• Southwest Asia Service (Gulf War)
• War on Terrorism
On the back , a representation of the stars and stripes of the American flag, interpreted as a service ribbon. This unique vest is an inspiration for the young soldier, a tribute to the veteran and a symbol of American national pride. Pendleton proudly donates a portion of the sales of the Grateful Nation Blanket and Vest to the Fisher House™ Foundation, which provides residences near major military and VA medical centers.
It will be given away during Veteran’s Week. What an AWESOME way to show your patriotic pride.
