Why should I buy something from Tactical 74?

  • Tactical 74 is a collection of great veteran business owners. Each are a master of their own craft who provides superior products.
    Some of our veteran sellers often use the manufacturing of their products as a way for them to cope with PTSD.
    By purchasing a product from Tactical 74, you are:
    • helping them realize their dream of being a business owner,
    • helping them cope with mental illness,
    • and with every purchase, a donation to a veteran charity is made.
    A win for everyone.
  • What charities do Tactical 74 support?

  • Tactical 74 tries it's best to support the veteran community.  In the past we have donated to many veteran charities like Soldier On and VETS Canada.  In addition to our corporate donations, many of our veteran vendors also make a second donation from your purchase to their own veteran charity of choice.  In some cases, the charity gets twice the donation!  Not bad for just buying a t-shirt, eh?

  • What is a socially responsible company?

  • What is a socially responsible company?  It's a commitment to act for the benefit of society at large.  For Tactical 74, this commitment is to the veteran community.  Each year, Tactical 74 makes a commitment of how much we can donate to a veteran charity.  We challenge ourselves to meet and exceed our goal from the year before.

    When you purchase an item from Tactical 74, a portion of the sale will be donated to a veteran charity.  In addition to charity, your sale supports a veteran business owner.  Tactical 74's commitment extends to helping fellow veteran business owners through meaningful partnerships and increased exposure.

    Tactical 74 is a veteran marketplace.  A proud collection of veteran businesses.  Starting your own business while transitioning to civilian life is challenging.  And Tactical 74 knows that first hand.  Taking a lesson learned from battle, “there is strength in numbers”.  Together we can all succeed.  Every business featured on Tactical 74 has a strong, focused warrior at it’s core.

    By shopping from our collection of veteran own businesses you help make their passion come to life.  In addition, for every item purchased through Tactical 74, a donation to a veteran charity is made.
