Oscar Mike Heroes Series Apparel

Each month we honor a new extraordinary Veteran who is conquering their disability and inspiring others by co-designing a custom piece of apparel with them. Each design tells their story in unique, dynamic artwork. We give a portion of the proceeds from the sales of their apparel items to the mission of their choice.

Mission:

To assist and promote disabled Veterans in being “on-the-move”.

 

Vision:

Oscar Mike wants to see all disabled Veterans utilizing their full potential, and doing something rewarding and productive with their lives.

Through 100% of the donations to the OMFoundation and 10% of all proceeds from Oscar Mike Apparel sales, we will provide disabled Veterans with the opportunity to be “Oscar Mike” in all aspects of life.

By focusing on the adaptive sports arena, the OMFoundation will assist in offering an outlet for an ongoing competitive lifestyle to thousands of American Veterans who have given the most in the service of our country.

 

What Makes Us Different:

We are 100% VETERAN OWNED.

We are disabled Vets who understand what other disabled Vets need to get “on-the-move” and remain a productive member of society.  We can relate to them, because we are them.

 

Further the Cause:

This is YOUR chance to give back to our disabled Veterans.

Giving to Oscar Mike is giving equally to all of the most dominant supporters of disabled Veterans to continue to stay “on-the-move”.

Oscar Mike understands the value of adaptive sports and their ability to increase a disabled Veteran’s “mental toughness”.

YOU will be directly contributing to helping Veterans progress and meet rehabilitation goals and meet their full potential.
