U.S. Patriot is a woman-owned, veteran-owned military and law enforcement supplier based in Columbia, S.C.
The owners of the company were stationed at Fort Jackson SC. He needed a few things for his uniform and went to the on post Clothing Sales but there were a couple of issues. First of all, he was treated with poor to non-existent customer service. Couldn't find anyone to help him and when he did - they couldn't help him - especially because they were out of stock on everything he needed.
So - an idea for a business started and when he left the military - he started US Patriot.
The business started in a small, dark warehouse down the street from the main gate in 2000. Now we have grown to 9 retail locations - Fort Stewart GA, Fort Jackson SC, Fort Sam Houston TX, Fort Sill OK, MacDill AFB FL, Fort Bragg NC (2) and Fort Riley KS (2). Coming Summer 2013, we will be opening two stores at Fort Gordon, GA and two additional stores at Fort Stewart, GA in August. We operate our Internet, Government and Private Military Contractor sales through our 25,000 sq foot warehouse in Columbia SC.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT TO YOU?
As Veterans, we understand the need for excellent customer service and quality products. We've been in your shoes and know what it's like to get gouged for products, sent low quality products or having shipping taking way too long.
We can't make everyone happy but we damn sure try to. We will go above and beyond to make our customers satisfied.
Unlike many of our competitors, we have invested heavily into our infrastructure. Do we drop ship? Yes - because it is impossible for us to stock every item in every color, size or variation. But on the vast majority of items we sell - we inventory and can ship same day. We warehouse over $2 million of inventory in our warehouse. Everything from boots to uniforms. We also do our embroidery and sewing in house so we can ship your uniforms faster.
Who are we?
The owners are Ex-Army Officers - a Kiowa pilot and Armor officer. The president of the company, Paul Yoo, served as an Armor officer at 3/69 Armor - 3ID Fort Stewart. Paul Paterson, Fort Jackson's general manager, is a retired veteran. Kyle Bradley, Fort Stewart's general manager, served with 1st Ranger BN and 3/7 IN - 24ID at Fort Stewart. Kyle is also a veteran law enforcement officer. Throughout our team, we have members of the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. And that's why we are so focused on providing the best products we can find at the most competitive prices possible.
