Veteran-Owned Wiley XÂ® Eyewear Remembers Soldiers Who Gave Their All
May 25, 2011
Wiley X® Eyewear has a long tradition of providing U.S. soldiers with state-of-the-art eyewear that protects their vision in combat situations and some the world’s harshest environments. This veteran-owned company is also making a concerted effort to provide our military personnel â€” especially the thousands of Americans who have given their lives to preserve our freedom â€” the honor, gratitude and respect they deserve.
“With Memorial Day marking the unofficial kickoff to summer and many families taking the opportunity to get away for an extended weekend, it’s easy to forget the true meaning of this holiday,” said Myles Freeman, Jr., Co-Owner of Wiley X Eyewear. “Memorial Day is a time for Americans to reflect on the ultimate sacrifice so many have made over our great nation’s history. On behalf of the Wiley X family, I encourage people to pause during this holiday and really think about the gift we’ve all been given â€” as well as its tremendous cost. If you meet a veteran or a solider this weekend, make sure to say ‘thank you!’ We need to truly appreciate our fallen heroes and our standing soldiers alike,” added Freeman.
For more than 25 years, Wiley X has supplied its advanced vision protection systems to elite U.S. military units in action around the world. Wiley X tactical eyewear products meet stringent ANSI Z87.1-2003 High Velocity and High Mass Impact and optical performance standards, protecting soldiers against a range of dangers and providing the clear vision and eye comfort necessary for them to perform their duties in challenging conditions. Wiley X is the only premium performance sunglass brand with this ANSI rating on every product it makes â€” so wearers receive this same level of protection when wearing Wiley X sunglasses at work or at play in the great outdoors.
