This weekend is a time to remember our fallen heroes, as well as those still holding the line. With the upside down world we find ourselves in thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, it can be easy to lose sight of those in our armed forces, past and present, where working from home was not an option. They are out there every day, putting their lives on the line to keep us safe, and some have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

As a knife retailer we feel especially close to our American service personnel, and this weekend gives us the opportunity to recognize their sacrifices, united together as a country. To them we say, we are extremely grateful that our nation is protected by you so we can go about our daily business the best we can. We may never understand the depths of what you have given up to keep us safe, but know you are appreciated and we are honored to call you our countrymen. We salute you, this day and all others!
