ALL ABOUT US
Remember those "Vietnam/Desert Storm Veteran" service hats at the exchange? Wearing one is like a rite of passage. A badge of honor so-to-speak. The only thing is most younger veterans won't wear them.
There I was, enjoying a cold local stout at one of Las Vegas' favorite watering holes. I was a beer club member at the time and won a prize for reaching the 100th different beer mark. It was a flatbill "fitted" hat with the tavern’s name on it. I've always liked the look of flat bill fitted hats but they never looked good on me no matter how many I tried on over the years. My first instinct was to give it away but I figured I'd try it on...
I've been wearing it ever since.
Fast forward several months later and it suddenly hit me that I didn't have to wait till I earned the right to wear one of those coveted service or campaign hats and decided to create my own design to wear. I did some research on the brand of hat I won and found out that OTTO International only sells their hats at wholesale and that's when light bulb came on!
That single thought quickly morphed into Vet☆Head Brand and the rest is history.
You know what they say - the best (mostly worse) ideas usually involve booze. In my case, it's American Whiskey or Bourbon and a Stout or Porter chaser.
Here's to bad decisions that lead to great ideas!
V☆HB is the idea of a 10 year U.S. Army Veteran who saw a need for a modern version of the traditional veteran service and campaign hats without compromising classic representation. While there will always be love for the awesome traditional service and campaign hats we all know (still can't wait to wear one) VHB offers an alternative.
And so, V☆HB offers classic representation with a modern look.
V☆HB isn't only for Veterans. Whether you're active duty, Reserves, National Guard, family of a service member or Veteran, or a Patriot who loves our country and supports our men and woman in uniform - V☆HB is for everyone!
Vet☆Head Brand will always strive to provide a 100% US sourced product. V☆HB uses premium hats made by OTTO International Inc, Richardson, and Decky. All American based companies who hire american workers.
However, sometimes we receive hats that were put together in China and for that we apologize. But that is why we try to at least make up for it a little by doing our best to only employ Veteran owned or Veteran managed small businesses for our web design and maintenance, product design, product production, advertisement and marketing needs.
Our hats are designed in house and the digitizing and embroidery is done right here in Las Vegas by Veteran owned/managed companies.
Who is VetHead Brand and what are we about?
Headquartered in Las Vegas, NV VHB is a Vegas born, Military family owned and operated company.
VHB is not just about looking sharp while representing your service with pride. We are much more than that. We hope to take advantage of this opportunity and use this platform to give back to the veteran community in the near future. Whether through community outreach and collaborations with other veteran-focused organizations in the Las Vegas valley.
One of our goals is to someday be able to support local Veteran mental health and suicide prevention programs. In addition to our time, our goal is to donate a portion of our create proceeds go to local mental health and suicide prevention programs while.
We also plan to use this blessing to do our part in bringing awareness to one particular area of the veteran community that we believe we believe this is largely underrepresented - Woman Veteran. Woman Veteran have played a vital role since WWI. Woman in general have played a vital supporting role in earlier conflicts. VHB co-owner aka Mama Bear, an Army Veteran, will be creating a line of products dedicated specifically for woman veteran that will include t-shirts as well as hats and other merchandise.
The Veteran community is a unique one. A camaraderie like no other. We at VHB believe in paying it forward and supporting those who made a choice to serve our country regardless of your motivation so we pledge to do so in any way we can.
We thank you for your support!
