    Ok so one of my buddies who got hit with a ied ended up coming home early and was stuck in the hospital for a good while, and they took him and some others down to the actual oakley factory...ok that place has been on my bucket list but never had time to go there unfortunately but he recieved a pair of gascan's with the Marine corps eagle globe & anchor eteched in the lens. Does anyone know how i can get a pair?

    Hmm, maybe it's only a promotion for wounded vets then. This is the first I've even heard of them. You might be able to call HQ for more details.

    Btw, thanks for your service!

    I do some work for the Wounded Warrior Project, And I have not heard of any sanctioned oakley relationship with this particular organization.

    Ive seen weirder stuff from oakley. I saw a New Mexico Bowl (college football) etched pair and bag from a few years ago. They also did some backpacks, laptops cases and other schwag.

    My issue with the Wounded warrior foundation is they don't accept donations if it has anything to do with tobacco. Have a friend that ownes a cigar shop and every year they do a fundraiser for wounded soldiers and their families. This past year they raised over 100k and they got the check back with a not saying they would not associate with any company that associates with tobacco and alcohol. So we support our brethren in other means such as the Infinite hero foundation, Green Beret foundation, and special operations warrior foundation. and others. I no longer support the foundation because it is bs and they should just be great-full for the money as long as it comes by legally. Too damn many wounded soldiers and fallen soldiers that need support. Get off your damn soap box and do what is right.
