If you have a close friend of family member who is serving in our armed forces, you understand the sacrifices our men and women in uniform make for our country. Personal sacrifices are but a small part of what our soldiers make for us. Many of our military personnel return from serving our country with wounds that are not visible to you or I. Hidden wounds.
Jamestown supports our military, and we do what we can to honor our troops. We have been honored with the presentation of two American flags given to us by Colonel Stephen Ritter, USAF, and LSC Kevin Hogan, US Navy, both of whom bravely served our country in war zones overseas. We are proud of our men and women in uniform.
While Hogan, a Jamestown regular, was deployed in Afghanistan, we kept in touch through phone calls and emails, and there was a running joke about Jamestown coming out with a Hogan’s Blend coffee, the label of which featured not our friend Hogan, but a photograph of Bob Crane of the Hogan’s Heroes television show.
It was good for a few laughs, but as it turns out our commitment to our armed forces took a serious turn when we had the opportunity to understand that many of our returning soldiers bring with them a great deal of baggage from the front.
Organizations like Wounded Warriors have performed great work in assisting our veterans and their families as our veterans adjust to life after serving in combat zones overseas. Hidden Wounds, a South Carolina-based organization that serves our veterans here at home, works with our service men and women who return suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
Jamestown Coffee Company is proud to introduce Hogan’s Blend Coffee, in honor of not just LSC Hogan but all South Carolinians who have sacrificed and served our country. Our Hogan’s Blend coffee is available in store and at our website at jamestowncoffee.net. Jamestown will donate $1 for each bag of Hogan’s Blend coffee to Hidden Wounds.
Hogan’s blend is available at our Columbia, South Carolina, store, or on at our online store.
