Fighting in Afghanistan is tough.
Fighting in Afghanistan in Chinese boots is just too much.
This was the message read about recently. Master Sgt. Steve Adachi bucked the system by refusing to wear the Chinese boots that were issued to him. My hat is off to the Sergent for being so adamant about wearing U.S. made products while serving his country in Afghanistan. Why anyone supplying gear to our troops would feel the need to offer anything other than boots made by members of our extended American family is beyond me. There are lots of great American made boots that could be supplied to Master Sgt. Adachi and that you and I can wear when we go hiking, fishing or hunting. Here are a couple of the boots that are listed at my favorite Made in America website, AmericansWorking.com.
This website offers a 27% discount for military veterans and has a 4th of July sale going on right now. The Thorogood Platinum looks plenty tough.
Now those are the boots that the military should issue to Master Sgt. Adachi don’t you think? And those are the boots that you and I should wear when we are engaging in activities far less hazardous than those that Master Sgt. Adachi and his brothers and sisters in the military have to face everyday they are on duty in Afghanistan.
