Veterans have always been looking for ways to find their way in the working force when it comes to a life after service. Some go back to school, some find work with different companies and others make the leap of going into business for themselves. Over the years we have seen Veterans come out on top over and over again, expanding into business territories that normally wouldn’t see a Veteran’s view on things. Coffee, whiskey, energy drinks, body soaps there have been plenty of different markets where we have seen our brothers and sisters thrive. Now we see a company start to come into its own in the skateboarding industry.
Growing up I have always had a love for skateboarding, it was apart of me that had always stayed with me throughout the years, even when I stopped getting on a skateboard itself. While time progressed, and life had a different plan for me I never would forget the days where I would just take the day to myself, and go enjoy some time on my skateboard. So it wasn’t much of a surprise to me when I found myself stumbling upon this new upcoming Veteran-Owned Company, War Pig Skateboards.
Jumping at the opportunity to figure out more about War Pig, I decided to message them on Social Media. Being able to connect with a Veteran Owned Company that is in the early stages of establishing themselves is something that I find truly special. I got to learn that when it comes to the owner, skateboarding played a big part in their life. This brought me a connection to the owner for I knew exactly what they meant. I was able to find that they wanted to bring Veteran Skaters out of the shadows to show the world what they can do.
For my final thoughts on War Pig Skateboards, I find that this is a company that has a bright future ahead of itself. For me to be able to bring skateboarding and the Veteran Community together in writing is something that I find exciting. With War Pig Already sponsoring individuals, and looking to bring fellow Vets into the skateboarding industry, War Pig is picking up steam and looks like it has the potential to be a top contender with the mindset that they have.
