Today I want to feature Zazzle designer Al Mount who is a Viet Nam Veteran and has a cool gift shop called Sarge's Gift Shop on Zazzle that has a military focus and is a great place to purchase gifts for the men in your life!
Here is his Store statement copied from the about section of his shop on Zazzle
I served with the 101st Airborne Division in Northern South Vietnam (I Corps) from Dec. 1967 to Aug. 1968 as an Infantryman.
Feb. 1968 I received a gunshot wound during the TET Offensive. Here's a little about that battle
In Feb 68, I had the honor of fighting between two CMH (Congressional Medal of Honor) recipients in one battle.
SSG. Clifford Sims fell on a grenade and died shortly there after.
SSG. Joe Hooper was behind me, as I looked over my right shoulder I could see Hooper motioning me forward.
As I stepped out in the clearing I was immediately cut down by enemy fire.
Hooper went on to be a superman killing machine that day, he lived thru it and was presented his MOH by President Nixon. A book was written about us, "LOOKING for a Hero, the story of Sgt. Ronnie Joe Hooper"
Hooper died in 1971 from an aneurysm, never getting to read the book.
April 1968 I received a shrapnel wound to my left hand.
Aug. 1968 I received another shrapnel wound to the back of my left ankle and was sent to a Hospital in Yokohama Japan then back to the States.
I spent 31 years as a Telephone man.
In Aug.2000, my PTSD had gotten so severe I forced myself to retire before I did something I would regret.
I discovered Zazzle in 2009 and have been designing things from my "Man Cave" in the basement every since.
Check out this cool paratrooper collection from Sarge's gift shop and why not drop in and see what else you can find there!
