To go along with the launch, a video features retired Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Brad Lang, who served in Afghanistan on an IED unit and sustained a serious injury.
In the clip, he talked about the importance of remembering those who serve and supporting them, something that has “dwindled away.”
Each Military Appreciation bottle features the brand’s famous red bucking horse and “Let’er Buck” tagline. The bottles also include several military embellishments including the common military term, “Got Your Six,” which means “we’ve got your back,” according to a press release sent to the Daily Caller.
