With remembrance day on our doorstep, often we ask “How can I honor our Serving members/Veterans?” What better way than by supporting their small business?
The owner of M.I.C. Gear is a currently serving Navy member and M.I.C. Gear has a number of different items, including a line of chest rig style paintball pod carriers and accessories for MILSIM play, including remote line covers, pouches and universal 1 point slings. All gear is custom and made to order. All equipment has been created, designed and made in Canada.
Today, we have an extra spotlight on one of our vendors:
Clarence, best known here at Tactical 74 as Lures for Vets, has been awarded the Minister of Veterans Affairs Commendation! This commendation is awarded to “Individuals who have performed commendable service to the Veteran community, and/or individuals who represent commendable role models for their fellow Veterans.”
Clarence’s passion and enjoyment of fishing came about after attending a Wounded Warriors Weekend 2013. Lures for Vets was created after receiving supplies as a Christmas gift and he generously donates ten percent of sales back to Wounded Warriors Weekend Foundation!
We are so proud to share with you Clarence’s commendation, and hope you will join us in celebrating him, one of many amazing and talented veterans that make up the team here at Tactical 74.
Today is a “Prime” day to highlight local craftsmen, and women! Today we’re focusing on Ottawa Wood Works:
They are an Ottawa-based, home wood-working service couple (she is a retired veteran, he is currently serving) crafting wooden pieces of art that you will be thrilled to gift or to display proudly for generations to come.
All of their products are made by hand and made to order (fully customizable and individualized)
