Even if you weren’t there blasting Zeros and Me-109s out of the skies, you can still experience some of the excitement and glory by dressing the part! Handmade from Grade A, drum-dyed leather & hand-inspected. This gives you a superior level of quality unmatched by inferior mass produced, machine-made garments. Our collection of A-2s is the finest available and we think you’ll agree!

R.Riveter was founded on the American ideal that opportunity and innovation, when combined with determination, will create positive impact. From two women in an attic to a nationwide network of Riveters, our company embodies the time-tested mantra of success through hard work while providing travel hardened military spouses the opportunity to achieve and elevate. With each spouse doing their part to assemble the product, the mission is accomplished through the hands of many, coming together as one. The team spirit and community within R.Riveter drives individual and collective success, in the shop or at home.
Bio: Lisa Bradley and Ashley Cruse, military spouses. “We were starting to see that if we wanted a career in this transient military life, we’d have to create it for ourselves.”
Warrior Songs is a non-profit organization committed to facilitating healing veterans through music and the creative arts.
Our mission is to assist veterans in more fully understanding and integrating all aspects of the military experience by transforming their traumatic experiences and struggles into an art form which both inspires and is life affirming, thus motivating their continued healing.
We also provide educational opportunities for non military community members to learn more about veteran issues (Post Traumatic Stress, Military Sexual Trauma, and Traumatic Brain Injury).

Rags of Honor
Rags of Honor was created with the mission that all homeless veterans can regain their lives if given the stability and dignity of a good-paying job as a starting point. Mark Doyle, the founder, and CEO of the company saw firsthand the sacrifice of servicemen and women in Afghanistan. He was sickened by the injustice of homeless veterans in Chicago and chose to make a difference. In response, Doyle created Rags of Honor as the only silkscreen shop that is 100% operated by homeless and unemployed veterans with the mission to provide them with an opportunity to rebuild their lives after serving in the U.S. military. The main office of Rags of Honor is in Chicago, Illinois where they also operate their manufacturing facility and warehouse.
