Throughout our careers we get the opportunity to work alongside some amazing people. The bonds we form overseas, especially in combat together, last forever. This pic was sent in from one of those people we got to know over the years of deploying together.
We got permission to use it for a run of prints and tees and once we hit our sales goal, we're going to cut a check to the organization that provides much needed support to the families of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment. The organization is called The Nightstalker Association. Tap links below to purchase and support a great cause!
Last year we teamed up with Noveske Rifleworks and made t-shirts and stickers to raise funds for an awesome cause. Each company donated $2,500 to One More Wave so we could hook up two well deserving wounded veterans with surfboards and all the gear they would need to ride waves and help heal the wounds of combat. Addict Surfboards out of San Diego shaped the boards by hand to accommodate these veterans' injuries.
I was invited on to Mark's podcast "Finding Your Summit" to talk about overcoming real adversity and finding a way out of dark places. Mark is a stud with a mission! He's attempting to become the first NFL player to climb the seven summits. He has climbed six out of the seven summits (the seven summits are the highest peaks on each continent). His final expedition will be to Mt. Everest, so it's an honor to hang with this guy and talk about things that matter, and more importantly has the potential to help others.
I really open up about some pretty dark things that happened to me when I was growing up and how that drove me to overcome it and find my version of success. I was pretty hesitant to tell these stories, but I'm just going to send it. If telling my story helps a few folks, it's all worth it!
Thirty Seconds Out is proud to share that we have joined forces with the Clean Water Corpsdivision of Waves For Waterto help in one of the biggest fights humanity faces: accessing clean water.
A percentage from each Blackhawk Waves t-shirt we sell will be donated to the Clean Water Corps. Our donation will go towards funding the deployment of veterans in the global water crisis. With this killer tee and your help, we will make a difference for those in need. This is about something bigger than t-shirts, bigger than all of us. It's about a basic life requirement being met where it's not.
The Clean Water Corps leverages the skills, experience and determination of military veterans to provide clean water solutions to those in harsh environments and during natural disasters. The CWC is a platform within Waves For Water, made for veterans to re-engage their world, to become part of a new team, united in a common and crystal clear purpose: bringing access to clean water to everyone that needs it. With their water filtration systems, they are boosting quality of life and helping prevent the spread of easily curable waterborne diseases among men, women and children.
We are here for this! Check out W4W and CWC's water filtration system and a short video about them below.
