Meet My Friend, Russ

This is my friend, SGT Russ Meade. We "met" while he was at Camp Fallujah, Iraq, through the Books for Soldiers program. To learn more about Russ and see more pictures, click on the title of this post.

Russ is now in the "sock business"!!! His company, Covert Threads, makes socks. These socks are made with the military in mind. "Our mission was to develop a line of socks along with other improved garments for the Marine, or anyone looking for comfortable, yet rugged socks, that stand up to the rigors of harsh climates and conditions."

I have to tell you that they are the best socks made for anyone who wears boots or is on their feet. Both, K and I wear these socks! Besides military use, they are great for hunters, farmers, construction workers, hikers and anyone who needs their feet to be taken care of. They are also the best thing to tuck into a care package for the troops! One of the young men we write to says he washes them out each night, because they make such a difference! We are personally fond of the Sand Sock and the Groundpounder, and will try the Ice this winter!

Next time you need to purchase socks, instead of getting foreign made socks, think about purchasing socks from Russ and support a Marine, who fought for us!

They will ship to APO/FPO addresses!!
