Next Stop for the U.S. Patriot Bravery Tour: The Mountain Post, Fort Carson, Colorado

The U.S. Patriot Bravery Tour’s only stop in Colorado is July 27 at Fort Carson, named in honor of the legendary Army scout, General, “Kit” Carson.

Lexington, KY (July 2023)U.S. Patriot, a GALLS® company, and one of the largest military suppliers of uniforms, boots, and gear, will visit its only Colorado stop at Fort Carson, on Thursday, July 27, 2023. The Fort Carson stop is the 23rd military stop on the U.S. Patriot Bravery Tour’s 25-military base, 6800-mile tour which started in May and is due to wrap up in early August.

The USP team is driving a 2023 Jeep® Wrangler Willys 4×4 that is part of the Bravery Tours promotion, in which, at each stop the team will offer food, drink, promos, giveaways, and more. The event will be held at the Fort Carson base exchange at Bldg. 6110 Martinez St on base. The event is open to all former and current military members and their families.

“The purpose of this tour is to meet our customers face-to-face, get to know our troops, and bring their voice directly into how we serve them better for their tactical gear needs.,” Mike Fadden, CEO of U.S. Patriot, said. “There is no better way to honor the bravery and sacrifice of the men and women who serve our country than to meet them in person, celebrate their stories and create a fun and memorable event they can enjoy with their families.”

The tour will be interactive, and the military service members will be encouraged to leave their unit’s memorabilia on the Jeep, making it one-of-its-kind by the end of the tour.

About Fort Carson:

Established in 1942 after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, Camp Carson (named after famed Army Scout “Kit” Carson) was built south of the city of Colorado Springs. The 89th Infantry Division was the first major unit to be activated at Camp Carson. During World War II, over 100,000 soldiers trained at Camp Carson. Along with three other infantry divisions – the 71st, 104th, and 10th Mountain – more than 125 units were activated at Camp Carson and more than 100 others were transferred to the Mountain Post from other installations.

Between 1942 and 1956, pack mules were a common sight at Camp Carson. The first shipment arrived by train from Nebraska in July 1942. The mules were used by field artillery (Pack) battalions to carry equipment, weapons, and supplies over mountainous terrain. The most famous of these animals was Hambone, the pride of the 4th Field Artillery for 13 years, he carried first sergeants up Ute Pass to Camp Hale. Camp Hale, located near Leadville, Colorado was where the Army conducted cold weather and mountain warfare training. Hambone died in March 1971 and was buried with full military honors.

Throughout its history, Fort Carson Soldiers and units have been very active in supporting various community events throughout Colorado. Soldiers from the Mountain Post have conducted firefighting missions in local national forests, search and rescue missions throughout the state, and various other emergency operations. Twenty-four cities in Colorado have formal relationships with units at Fort Carson and the Mountain Post supports over 350 community events such as parades, concerts, and fairs every year. Fort Carson has a proud history of supporting the nation’s call to arms. For more than five decades, Fort Carson has provided trained and ready Soldiers to meet operational requirements. That heritage continues today at Fort Carson, the Mountain Post.
