Attention active duty or Retired Military!!;
Leatt Products may qualify for a discount if you buy direct.
I don't know if it is proper to say just how much in open forum, but keep it real... if you are the end user, and can provide proof of active duty (possibly even retired members) ,
They'll do you right!

Indeed. Most of us who hate the war still love the soldier and its not just a good day at your house, it's a good day at all of our houses when our young folks return home. Thanks to him for his service and thanks to you for enduring the anxiety of having your son in harm's way for what must seem like a very long time.

Thanks Hal.

I have some serious misgivings about our involvement in that part of the world. I oppose the war but support the warriors, who unfortunately are often simply used as pawns and implements of policy, without regard to the policy's wisdom or long term effect.

My son, like so many other sons and daughters, did what a good soldier does. He followed orders and did his job. For that I am thankful and proud.

I very clearly remember a time when our returning warriors were NOT treated with the respect they are now. Thank God we have learned to "oppose the war and support the warrior".



As someone in PAR has observed.... that was a different time in America...

Many thanks to your son, glad he's home.

My brother left last night for Afganistan.

I hope your brother's deployment is as uneventful as John's.

We'll keep him in our prayers.
