DALLAS – Soldiers For Life can now wear their service with pride with official U.S. Army apparel coming soon to Army & Air Force Exchange Service PXs.
This month, 30 PXs in the United States, Europe and the Pacific will offer polos, T-shirts and caps sporting the Army’s Soldier For Life logo. The apparel will also be available at ShopMyExchange.com.
“About 75% of Americans say they know little about their military,” said Exchange Director/CEO Tom Shull. “This exclusive clothing line is a great opportunity for Veterans and Retired Soldiers to share conversations about the value military service provides our Nation.”
“The launch of Soldier For Life apparel through the Exchange will help the Army build a stronger relationship with the 8 million Army Veterans and 1 million Retired Soldiers who have served with honor,” said Army Retirement Services Director Mark Overberg. “Every time they put on one of these polos, t-shirts, or caps, they will be reminded that they are Soldiers For Life.”
