This week we were able to make an impactful contribution to the North Dallas VA hospital in support of their new Breast Cancer care unit. During the month of October we donated $25 for each pink Hucksley shirt sold. So many of our customers stepped up and helped us make a difference. 
The Mizzen+Main donation will go toward helping to make female veterans more comfortable during their treatment. These women have put their lives on the line to protect us...the least we can do is support them during this very tough time. 
Thank you all for your support!

Where do you live?
Dallas, TX
Tell us a little about yourself-
I'm a graduate of Southern Methodist University and founding member of The Rosedale Group. I am a former Army Infantry Officer and 2 tour wounded Veteran of the Global War on Terror. 
Which branch of service are you in?
Army
Why did you choose to serve?
My passion for joining the military was simply a reflection of my grandfather's service in WWII.  From an early age, I associated their lifetime of success with their wartime experiences earned overseas. The passion with which they lived their lives was directly attributable to their confidence gained in uncertain scenarios when fighting to simply see the next day.  I wanted to live that style of life and no other way.  Fast forward 12 years, I was a senior in high school when the towers fell.  In step with fellow Veterans, I raised my right hand with the desire to find, fix and finish our Nation's enemies on the field of battle.  I was able to do just that, and am forever grateful to the opportunity to serve during a wartime, but pray my children will never have that opportunity.
What are your plans for when you are out of service/What do you do now?
Currently, I work at Alsbridge, Inc. as a Business Development Executive.

Oklahoma
Tell us a little about yourself-
I grew up farming and ranching in small town Oklahoma. I'm currently an aircraft mechanic in the Air Force aspiring to be a pilot. I'm proud to say I have a beautiful family that I love very much!
Which branch of service are you in?
I'm active duty Air Force.
Why did you choose to serve?
Aviation has been a dream as long as I can remember. The opportunity to help protect and give back to my country all while pursuing that dream at the same time was what drew me to serving. A wise man once said "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life" I love it and I'm currently on my second enlistment. I'm lucky and very much honored to serve!
What are your plans for when you are out of service/What do you do now?
I intend to focus on my family and continue to reach for the sky as a professional pilot as I transition out of the service.

Deployed to Kuwait
Tell us a little about yourself-
I grew up in Mansfield, Texas. I graduated from Mansfield High School in 2011. I love hunting, fishing, playing guitar, tattoos, and Texas/Red dirt country music. I've been in the Army for going on 5 years now, and I'm currently deployed to Kuwait in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
Which branch of service are you in?
Army
Why did you choose to serve?
I chose to serve because I love my country, my friends, and my family. That's a cliche, but it's the truth. I wanted to do something that would benefit more than just myself, and the military was something I had wanted to do since I was a kid.
What are your plans for when you are out of service/What do you do now?
I'm not really sure that I will leave the military. Sure, I'll retire eventually, but I don't currently have any plans to leave the service.

Texas
Tell us a little about yourself-
I am a United States Marine that was catastrophically wounded by an IED in Iraq in 2004. I lost both of my eyes and had 45% of my cranium crushed. I underwent 30 major surgeries in the first 12 months of recovery and spent 16 months in different hospitals and rehabilitation facilities before being medically retired. Instead of hanging it up and calling it a day, I rallied with the true American spirit. I wanted to continue my commitment to our country and went back to college. I attended Georgetown University and the University of South Florida before graduating in 2012. I have maintained my spirit and continued to serve the veteran community by writing for the New York Times Homefires blog and have been featured in James Gandolfini’s HBO documentary Alive Day Memories. I currently work as the Director of Development for a veteran non-profit called Honor, Courage, Commitment. Our goal is to promote and sponsor veteran entrepreneurship. We create elite veterans by focusing on the three major components of formal education, mentorship and community service.
Which branch of service are you in?
United States Marine Corps
Why did you choose to serve?
It was a new direction for my life.
