The brands philosophy is to be on your own fucking program(OFP). In other words, think out the box and build your world.
Veteran Empire is a veteran-owned lifestyle brand that portrays military veterans in a new vibrant, positive light. I had the privilege to interview co-founder David Burnell. He served the country for 11 years in the United States Marine Corps back in the States he started a company called Veteran Empire (LLC).
What inspired you to start your brand?
Johnny Cupcakes http://johnnycupcakes.com/. He identified a lifestyle brand that was personal to him. At the time I was on Embassy Duty as a Marine and I saw that I could have a lifestyle brand that I was proud of. I was fit, I was invited to diplomatic type parties, high end restaurants, and I was well traveled. I knew a hand full of buddies that were like me so I came up with a logo. Printed it and sent my t-shirts out to the other 144 + US Embassies. Told my friends to wear my shirt, take cool pics in the present country they were in. We went 0 to 100 real quick. *Drake voice
