Today is Veterans Day, a day marked to pay tribute to those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. There are over 18 million veterans currently in the U.S., having served in conflicts ranging from WWII to the most recent conflicts in the Middle East.
In honor of Veterans Day, we are highlighting an organization working to help veterans and their families. Patriot Point, situated on 290 acres of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, provides a relaxing and safe environment to enjoy outdoor recreational activities for our nation’s wounded, ill, and injured service members and their families. The goal of Patriot Point is to create a destination for those who have served our nation to rest, recharge, and rejuvenate away from the stresses and challenges of their everyday lives. Patriot Point serves as a place to decompress after deployment, to spend quality time reconnecting with family, or to simply rest and recharge. Activities at Patriot Point include fishing, crabbing, and water sports, along with a variety of classes and other activities offered in rotation throughout the year. To learn more about Patriot Point and their mission, visit patriotpoint.org.
This year, Alpha Industries is proud to donate one jacket for every jacket purchased during the week of Veterans Day to Patriot Point.
