  8. Second String Leather Company is exceedingly honored to announce that a portion of its proceeds, from the new Stars & Stripes Pro Spec Series, will be donated to the David Warsen Legacy Foundation. David Warsen was a Special Warfare Operator Second Class (SEAL) who was killed on a mission when his helicopter was tragically shot down, Northeast of Kandarhar, Afghanistan on August 16, 2012. He was one of 11 whom lost their lives that day. David enlisted in the United States Navy on March 10, 2009. He graduated form Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Illinois on May 8 2009. He then graduated from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL School in Coronado, California on March 26, 2010 with Class 279. David was assigned to a West Coast based SEAL team in October 2010. This is where he met his wonderful fiancee Karlyn Deveau, who he planned to marry on December 8th 2012. In December 2011, he deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. David's awards and decorations include Bronze Star with Valor, Purple Heart, Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal with Valor, Combat Action Ribbon, Afghanistan Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Sea Service, Deployment Ribbon, the NATO Service Medal, Expert Rifle Marksmanship Medal and the Expert Pistol Marksmanship Medal. David was so much more than just a Navy SEAL; as most SEAL’s are. He embodied all the assets that were necessary to become one of the most respected and admired jobs in the world. That's what makes he and these men special. They have incredible inner strength, integrity, love and a nature of giving that we could all, only hope to embrace. Their sacrifice is huge and the stakes are high for their personal and professional lives. Let us never forget what they and all deployed service members sacrifice for us. Let us all remember what they give up, to allow us the freedoms we enjoy everyday. It’s an honor to be offering these pieces in conjunction with the David Warsen Legacy Foundation to honor him and other fallen soldiers that have made the greatest sacrifice protecting our freedom and our country. To learn more about the David Warsen Legacy Foundation, go to: www.davidwarsenlegacy.com Proceeds will be used for: - Gift and care packages to deployed SEAL’s and troops. Over 200 packages shipped in 2018 - Athletic scholarships for male and female athletes within Grand Rapids, Michigan - Gifts in kind to those sick and in need

  14. Second String Leather Company co-owner Joe Messina presenting Bandits Goalie School Owner and Director Stan Matwijiw with a very special gift for his 46th birthday. This gift comes from the new Thatcher Demko Stars & Stripes Collection and plays a significant roll in what Bandits is all about; Family, Unity and Having A Purpose (HAP). Thatcher has also been a student within Bandits Goalie School since 2009 and has not only embraced HAP since learning about it but has continued to spread the word to others about the importance of “Having A Purpose” in everyday life. Since 1999, Bandits Goalie School has been a driving force for goaltender training in North America. The importance of this gift revolves around the foundation in which Bandits was built on, Having A Purpose. The HAP mantra took on a greater recognition within the athletic community when longtime Bandits student Ian Jenkins passed away in May of 2011. With Ian’s passing, Bandits has carried on Ian’s legacy each day by instilling the HAP mindset into each of its students. The initials are much more then three letters but a way of life, thinking and mental planning. The HAP mindset has taken individuals to new heights, achieve unthinkable goals and more importantly; become a better person. It was with great pleasure to give Mr. Matwijiw his gift. For over 2 decades he has given people direction and guidance with HAP, now he has this piece that has been truly crafted with a PURPOSE.
