Portland, OR (PRWEB) September 07, 2012
Members of the 41st Infantry Brigade Combat Team, Oregon Army National Guard, here, presented a plaque to USA Military Medals, recently, recognizing the company’s support and dedication to their unit.
USA Military Medals and the 41st IBCT have developed a strong relationship in part because of their close proximity and the company’s efforts to reach out to units in the area.
"Here in the Northwest, we don't have (from a Soldier's perspective) the option of simply driving onto a base and hitting the Exchange to get our uniforms up to snuff,” said Jared Zabaldo, USA Military Medals, President of Business Operations.
“So anything we can do to support these local Soldiers, we do it,” said Zabaldo.
Based out of Oregon, USA Military Medals has had a long-running commitment to serving members of the United States military, veterans, and their families, and particularly those located nearby due to the fact that the closest major bases are more than two hours away in the Seattle, Wash. area.
The 41st IBCT, known as the “Jungleers,” are based out Camp Withycombe in Clackamas – approximately a mile away from USA Military Medals headquarters in Milwaukie.
"It's an honor to be recognized by a local unit. Fostering relationships with any element of the military wherein we're making their lives easier as a part of the supply chain is obviously our goal, but to have a personal relationship with local Northwest personnel and units and then to be recognized by them for excellence is pretty satisfying - to say the least,” said Zabaldo.
“That's really where our mission was born, so it's 'mission accomplished' for us on that level," he said.
USA Military Medals is an internet-based company formed in 2005, carrying more than 10,000 dress uniform products in stock and specializing in custom military medal and ribbon rack production for uniform wear. USA Military Medals also operates a brick and mortar store servicing local military personnel and veterans.
