1. Portraits of a Patriot - Jack Hill

    Meet our new favorite grandpa, Jack Hill.

    Mizzen+Main team member, Jaclyn, nominated her grandfather to be one of our featured Veterans, and we’re so glad she did. Jack (Jaclyn was named after him) served as a Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force. We heard story after story about the camaraderie in his unit and the pride he now has, that one can only get by serving something bigger than himself.

    It was evident that Jack has a deep rooted love for America. “We’ve got the best country in the world. It’s our freedom that sets us apart from all the other countries in the world. I just think it’s a wonderful country and you ought to appreciate the fact that you live [here] and we have the freedom that we have… you choose what you want and you have the opportunity to do it, and you can acheive a lot of happiness. I think going into the military is a good thing for people to do.”
