We partnered with Randy Couture to create the Freedom Defender Line to help support wounded Veterans. A portion of every sale goes to the Extreme Couture G.I. Foundation. Randy gives 100% of all funds raised and gives them to Veterans in need. Every employee is a volunteer and draws no salary. Please help us spread the word of this great foundation by sharing this video on Social media pages and emails. Heres a brief letter from Randy himself giving thanks ahead of time!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJqwxu6Lsac&t=1s&index=3&list=PLBMUHCKC6-fxFB-91hfumDzPQqknW1oXv

To: My Fellow AMBASSADORS
I can’t tell you how thankful I am for your support of the Affliction Freedom Defender series and ultimately my G.I. Foundation for wounded veterans at xcgif.org. We train our warriors to suppress strong emotional reactions in the face of adversity, to tolerate physical and emotional pain, and to overcome the fear of injury and death. The military can’t decrease the intensity of that conditioning without negatively affecting the fighting capability of our military. It is a catch 22. A chilling truth is service members are, simply put, more capable of killing themselves by sheer consequence of their professional training. From the invasion of Afghanistan in ’03 to now, the US military lost 1,816 soldiers in combat in that country. Compare that to the more than 2,700 who took their own lives over the same period. For every soldier serving in Afghanistan, coming home is more lethal than being in combat. This has to change. We need to retrain our warriors on what defines success to them. That success is shown perfect within our fellow brand ambassador Jose Sanchez. As a combat wounded veteran and adaptive athlete each day he challenges himself to overcome adversity that would be crippling to most abled bodies persons. To launch the Freedom defender line and bring awareness to this cause, Jose andMyself wanted to showcase one of the most physical and mentally challenging tasks in all of sports. Bow hunting for ELK in Colorado. Sitting at an elevation of 9,000 feet

To breathe is a challenge, not to mention the rocky and steep terrain. All the best,

Ran
