All American Clothing Awarded Honorary Flag:

All American Clothing Co. was recently awarded this honorary flag from the 76th Expeditionary Rescue Squadron from Camp Bastion, Afghanistan. The flag was awarded to All American Clothing  in support of “Operation Enduring Freedom.” It was flown in a HC-130P “King” aircraft during a rescue mission that saved 2 lives and 3 assisted recoveries.

The statement on the document picture reads, “The resolve of our great nation is being tested. But make no mistake, we will show the world that we will pass the test.”

This statement rings true as our nation is constantly being tested in various ways. We have always shown the world that we are capable of passing the test. This is something to always think about whenever we are experiencing some turmoil. We have always passed the test, and will continue to do so no matter if the test is a war on terror, or a faultering economy. We will prevail.

Thank you to those members in the 76th Expeditionary Rescue Squadron:

Maj. Matthew Barnes

MSgt Lee Piekker

MSgt Al Cunningham

Maj. Octavio “Bud” Echevarria

Capt. Celia Jarratt

SSgt. Jason Shreeram

A1C Timothy Fitzpatrick

Thank you for your service to our great nation.

It truly is an honor.

Thank You, Veterans:

“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.”-Elmer Davis

This quote by Elmer Davis says it all. We are the land of the free because of the sacrifices that brave men and women have made for our country. It is because of brave men and women that we Americans can enjoy the freedoms that we have today. We would not even have a nation if it weren’t for men and women who were brave enough to sacrifice their lives. So, in honoring ALL the men and women who have served, we say THANK YOU.

Before Congress changed its name in1954, Veterans Day was known as Armistice Day. Armistice Day marked the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. The armistice was signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany. It took effect at “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” in 1918. Since 1954, Armistice Day has since been changed to Veteran`s Day in which all veterans are to be honored for their services and sacrifices. The holiday is celebrated among families and friends as schools, banks, and many businesses close in order to commemorate our Veterans. The businesses that remain open often offer a special sale and free items for the Veterans as a token of appreciation.

If you are wondering how to show and offer tribute to a veteran, here are a number of ways you can do so:

  1. Observe a moment of silence at 11:00 A.M. for those veterans who have fought and died while in service.
  2. Display and fly an American Flag. The flag could be flown in your front yard, and you can also wear a shirt that displays the American Flag.
  3. Say “Thank You” to a Veteran you may know. This could be a family member, friend, or even a Veteran you don’t even know that you may bump into.
  4. Visit the family of a veteran who is serving overseas. This again could be a friend`s family that you may know and would be a great appreciation to both the serviceman and his or her family.
  5. Attend a Veterans Day parade. Veterans and current servicemen march or ride in parades celebrating Veterans Day.

These are just a few ways you can offer tribute and thanks for the men and women who have sacrificed their lives so people like us can enjoy the freedoms that we have today. I hope that all of you decide to “thank” a veteran in some shape or form.

Oh, I almost forgot. You could also thank a veteran with a new pair of All American jeans Made  in USA if you like!!!

Again, to the Veterans who sacrificed their lives, Thank You.

Support American Jobs this Holiday Season:

Wish America a very merry Christmas this Holiday Season in buying American Made goods! Christmas is getting closer as Thanksgiving and Black Friday shopping is weeks away. Shoppers are already starting to search through stores for the perfect gifts. Last year Americans spent $460.20 Billion dollars during the Holiday season, with 15 billion spent on Black Friday alone. That is A LOT of money! If all of $460.20 Billion dollars was spent on American goods, that would benefit our economy immensely, but we all know that it impossible to spend every dollar on American Made goods. So I will be more realistic. Even if a fourth of that amount spent on American Made goods would raise at least $100 billion dollars in American money. This would only mean that each American would only have to spend 25% of their total Christmas spending on American Made goods. Of course, we encourage you to buy more than 25% of all your gifts as USA
Made. Please consider this. The money you spend on American Made Christmas gifts is both a gift for others AND your country. This way of shopping can result in smiles on others` faces as they open a new gift AND smiles on your fellow Americans` faces when they have a new job! So America, I encourage you to make a difference and support American Jobs this Holiday Season!

Red, White, and Boo! Its Halloween Season!

Halloween: Monday Oct. 31, 2011
Halloween dates back thousands of years ago with Celtic rituals. Since then, the images of ghosts and witches have remained a dark theme. Many rituals have been performed over the years leading up to the rituals we have today of dressing up and trick or treating. The holiday today has a theme where children wear costumes with a lighter theme which puts a smile on your face when they arrive at your door with the words, “Trick or treat!”

In light of the upcoming holiday, here`s a few surprising facts that you may or may not have known:

41 million—
The estimated number of potential trick-or-treaters in 2010. This includes children from ages 5 to 14 across the United States.
Source: U.S. Census Bureau, 2010 Census.

116.7 million— Number of occupied housing units across the nation in 2010 — all potential stops for trick-or-treaters.
Source: U.S. Census Bureau, 2010 Census,

92%—Percentage of households with residents who consider their neighborhood safe. In addition, 78 percent said there was no place within a mile of their homes where they would be afraid to walk alone at night.

1.1 billion pounds—Pumpkin production by major pumpkin-producing states in 2010. Illinois produced an estimated 427 million pounds of the vined orange gourd. California, New York and Ohio were also major pumpkin-producing states, each with an estimate of more than 100 million pounds.

Oh, and one more thing! Do enjoy your holiday with as much USA Made Halloween treats and costumes as possible! Candies such as carmel apple pops and candy corn are Made in USA. Even one small purchase of USA Made socks or a T-shirt for underneath a costume will certainly make a difference in creating jobs! Thanks for checking in and Happy Halloween!

Supporting our Future Generations:

We would like to encourage everyone to be a part in helping out our future generations in purchasing  U.S. Made goods. The goal is for us to create as many American jobs as possible for our future generations. As it stands, jobs are still hard to come by which will leave it difficult for future generations to find work. To get a better understanding about the unemployment crisis, we are going to take a look at recent college graduates as they seem to be our next generation. Currently, the unemployment rate for college graduates who are of ages 20-24 is at 14.5% This is significantly higher than the national rate at 9.1% My first thought when I heard this was shouldn’t the unemployment rate for college graduates be lower than that of the national rate? I mean, Kids are being told to go to college in order to attain an education that will better prepare them for a job. Yet, a college education is not enough for them to find work. To me, there are a few factors that may make this number higher. The first is the quality of job that a college graduate may be looking for may be more difficult to attain. It`s easier for a someone to get a job at a fast food restaurant than it is for a recent grad who is trying to start a career. The second is that the number of quality jobs that a college graduate is seeking is in lower quantities than the jobs that are available at places like factories and fast food restaurants. This leaves a more competitive job search for college grads, leaving a select few with jobs and many without.

With this being said, there are hardships for our future as we know it. But, we can do something about it! We can create more jobs for our future generations just in buying American Made products! We hope that next time you go shopping that you look at the label to see if it is made in America before you purchase the product. We hope that next time you are shopping online, you decide to search Made In America products instead of following trends. You will find an astonishing amount of Made in USA companies including us, All American Clothing Co. With this, you will support others in this country with a future job opportunity. If every American purchased one USA garment per year, the impact would be $9 billion. This would create an amazing amount of jobs! It all adds up people! Start Now! Support our future generations!

The Buy American Project:

The Buy American Project gives Americans another opportunity to support the American economy. It is a 501c3 non-profit organization that supports and approaches the US Government with a non-partisan attempt to influence the Senate and the House of Representatives towards increasing the jobs in this country. Headed by group of American Made company owners including our very own Lawson Nickol, the Corporation will create awareness in supporting US companies, jobs, products, and prosperity. In supporting American-owned companies that produce goods and services exclusively in the United States, the Buy American Project will keep and create jobs in our borders.

Again, the primary goals of the BAP is to make sure our citizens to have jobs, improved economy, reduced trade deficits and upgrades in our US standard of living. Americans, you deserve it.

Why American Made is Important:

“I have been employed in the Lufa Garment Factory for two years. This is my first job ever. From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., six days a week, I produce jackets and pants. The volume is so high—50 to 60 pieces per hour—that is not possible to keep a smiley face. My monthly pay is 2,500 taka [about 34 U.S. dollars]. I hardly save any money.  In the last year I got myself three dresses. Each one cost 1,000 taka. Those were my only treats.”    -Shagorika, 18, Garment Worker, Bangladesh

When I read this message, I found it hard to believe that the factory she was referring to was a garment factory that is well known throughout the U.S. This has become a trend in the United States so companies can make an extra buck. To me, the idea of shipping jobs overseas and paying people like Shagorika 34 US dollars a month is flat out wrong (this is roughly 11 cents an hour). In addition to this, the working conditions of being in a factory for 12 hours a day cannot be the greatest. As Shagorika stated, “that is not possible to keep a smiley face.” For me, it is not possible to keep a smiley face because this is what companies are doing today. The consequence of this is that they are costing Americans their jobs. This is proven with the the jobless rate which stands at almost 9.1% (12.5 million), its highest rate since the great depression (over 15 million).
