Support Veterans with the Stars & Stripes Collection

 

The last Monday in May is observed by every state as Memorial Day, a day of remembrance to honor those who gave their lives in service to the United States of America. While the exact location and date of its origin are unclear, Memorial Day began because of the Civil War and citizens’ desire to honor the dead.

This year, OGIO has partnered with NS2 Serves, “a program designed to train, prepare and employ recent veterans who are transitioning from a military career into a civilian career,” in order to give back to the veteran community. OGIO has developed the limited edition Stars & Stripes Collection; a portion of the proceeds from this collection is donated to veteran support and development charities. The collection features an antique flag pattern and is available for several golf bags and golf accessories.

About NS2 Serves

Established by SAP National Security Services, Inc. (SAP NS2™), NS2 Serves is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that aims to give back to the community by training and preparing veterans to reenter the workforce. This young program kicked off in March 2014, and has continued to broaden its program to fit veteran needs. NS2 Serves offers training courses in IT solutions that support national security of the United States, and employment assistance to place veterans in high-tech careers. Courses are open to post-9/11 veterans and reservists, as well as Gold Star spouses that meet certain criteria. Ideally, a potential trainee will have been out of the service for less than 3 years, and have a minimum of a high school diploma or GED.

Shelter Yourself from April Showers- OGIO Umbrellas

They say that April showers bring May flowers, but that’s no reason to get wet. An excellent umbrella will go a long way toward protecting you from sudden April rainfall, especially if you enjoy outdoor spring activities.

Founded by Mike Pratt in 1987, OGIO International manufactures a remarkable range of sports bags, backpacks, gym bags, golf club bags and gear for corporate travel. Ogio also happens to make a couple of first class umbrellas that will keep you dry whether you’re walking to work, dashing from the car to your door, or spending a day on the green.

OGIO Golf Umbrella

Lava Magazine gives readers a first look at the new Ogio Endurance 9.0 Athletic Bag

Ogio Endurance 9.0 Athletic Bag LavaMagazine

Ogio Endurance 9.0 Athletic Bag from LavaMagazine.com

It’s great to not have to toot our own horns all the time. Quite often, OGIO fans do the tooting for us. Such is the case when last month Susan Legacki from LavaMagazine.com gave readers a first look at the OGIO Endurance 9.0 Athletic bag.

Susan is exactly the type of OGIO fan that the Endurance 9.0 bag was made for. Says Susan:

“If you actually counted out the amount of time I spend every night packing various bags for my next morning (gym, swim, work, hike, etc.), I estimate a good chunk of my life is spent organizing things into various zippered pockets.”

So, you can probably tell how excited were were to read all the kind things she had to say:

“Ogio athletic bags are the perfect balance of design and function. They’re sleek to look at, and designed with the athlete in mind.”

“…the straps on the Ogio are, like all of their other bags, incredibly adjustable and comfortable, so you can rest assured that if you decide to hop on your bike and ride to the transition area like I often do, you won’t be toppling over halfway there because of an ill-fitting, oversized bag. I’ve seen this end a race before it even began on more than one occasion.”

Head over to the Endurance 9.0 page now to check out the all the features and to buy your bag today.
