Exciting! The U.S. Patriot Bravery Tour Stops at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst
It is always something we want to support and promote, supporting our troops here in the Garden State. The men and women who serve in the U.S. Military and their families. We want to let them know we have their back when they have ours. According to Statista, "In 2021, there were 482,416 active members in the U.S. Army. California is home to the most active duty members within the U.S., with 157,639 stationed personnel in 2021." Military Bases says "The Garden State, New Jersey, has nine military bases, which is quite a lot compared to other states of similar size. The USMC is the only branch without bases in NJ."
On May 15th the U.S. Patriot Tactical Bravery Tour team will be at the JB McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst base exchange, located at 3452 Broidy Ave, McGuire AFB. The event will feature food, drinks, promos, giveaways, and a chance to win the 2023 Jeep® Wrangler Willys 4x4 the U.S. Patriot team is traveling in. The event is open to all former and current military members and their families.
"The purpose of this tour is to meet our customers face-to-face, get to know our troops, and bring their voice directly into how we serve them better for their tactical gear needs,” Mike Fadden, CEO of U.S. Patriot, said. “There is no better way to honor the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who serve our country than to meet them in person, celebrate their stories and create a fun and memorable event they can enjoy with their families."
The tour started on May 2nd at Fort Campbell and is rolling onto the fourth stop in the 6,800-mile journey at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst on Monday, May 15th. The tour has been well received by soldiers and their families at the previous stops, Fort Campbell, Fort Drum, and West Point.
