Rags of Honor was created based on the idea that all homeless veterans can regain their lives if given the stability and dignity of a good-paying job as a starting point. Mark Doyle, the founder, and CEO of the company saw firsthand the sacrifice of servicemen and women in Afghanistan. He was sickened by the injustice of homeless veterans in Chicago and chose to make a difference. In response, Doyle created Rags of Honor as the only silkscreen shop that is 100% operated by homeless and unemployed veterans. The main office of Rags of Honor is in Chicago, Illinois where they also operate their manufacturing facility and warehouse.
Rags of Honor is a top-quality screen printing organization that has the mission of providing employment and services to homeless veterans to rebuild their lives after serving in the U.S. military. The proceeds go directly to employ the veterans who are producing the garments at the Rags of Honor facility. We set out to make a difference for those who have served our country by building a company that honors their service. At Rags of Honor we pay a living wage, offer continuing education and training and help our veterans with life skills that they need to continue their life’s journey with dignity.
Often, when people support veterans, they are unsure about the details of how the funds will be used. When you buy apparel from Rags of Honor, you know your contribution directly supports the employment of and assistance for homeless veterans. All of our American apparel is designed and printed by our proud United States Veterans. Look good and feel good, knowing that your purchase helped make a difference in the never ending fight against the veteran homeless crisis sweeping the country. "They had our backs, let's keep the shirts on theirs."
