In the Beginning

Good heavens, we've done it.  We've stepped confidently across the threshold of the blogosphere & prepared to introduce the innermost thoughts of A.C. Valor to the world.  It's thrilling.  It's shocking.  It's a little intimidating.

What does one write about in a first blog of a military pridewear company?  It would seem that introductions are in order for those who stumbled upon us by sheer internet happenstance.  To those who have done just that, welcome, & thank you for sticking around long enough to begin reading.  To those for whom A. C. Valor is a household name, welcome, & thank you for standing by us!  The official company introduction goes something like this: 

A.C. Valor is a company, founded by a military spouse, that is dedicated to creating a stylish line of clothing and accessories to honor the men and women of the Armed Forces and their families worldwide.  A.C. Valor's Core Values of honor, courage, & commitment are a direct reflection of the values of the United States Military - an elite group of men, women and families whom A.C. Valor supports through the design and marketing of Military pride wear.  Currently, Glam Gal by A.C. Valor can be found at Marine Corps Exchanges around the globe, online at, and other fine retail stores across the country. The company is a testament to the spirit of the Marine Corps family with their ever-changing, fresh approach to providing families with fun, fashionable military pride wear!

See?  Official, right?  All 100% true, but still not exactly capturing the essence of A.C. Valor.  At our core, A.C. Valor is a family.  It's a calling.  It's a passion.  It's a service for those who serve our nation.  It's a company of men & women who stand shoulder to shoulder with their customers because they're living the same lives.  When a son waves goodbye to his tearful mother & boards a plane for a foreign land, we've been there.  When a breathless young girlfriend rushes through a graduation-day crowd to leap into the arms of her new Marine, we've been there.  When a toddler takes his first faltering steps before collapsing unceremoniously onto a camoflage-clad lap, we've been there.  And we love it.  We embrace it, & we're proud of it.

So it is easy for us to make military pridewear for thousands of families around the world because we are personally invested in it.  We step out of our houses in it in the mornings & dress our children in it before we tote them onto base for an event. 

I could go on, but, really, I think for now I'll end this cyber-handshake, conclude the how-do-you-do, & just express, once again, how appreciative we are that you've come to our blog to get to know us better.  Leave us some comment love, ask us questions, & just generally make yourself at home!


  1. I can't wait to see all of the new products and hear the latest news! So proud to be a military family and able to show it in style! :)

  2. I second what Julie said! Very proud to be serving this country in this way and want to show it off in style! *grin*

  3. Looking forward to seeing what's ahead for A.C. Valor. Great place to find out what's going on for those of us not near a base.
