We’ve been working on something really exciting - introducing a handcrafted military uniform version of Six Word War featuring a unit patch of your choice.

Using surplus military uniform fabric, this special edition of our book is a powerful keepsake for your time in the military. Personalized with a unit patch that can commemorate your deployment or career in the military, we’re really excited to offer a unique version of a book written by the thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen that contributed to this project. 

The military uniform editions of the book are available here at our store.
