We’re kicking off our Military Appreciation Month promotion today, and we wanted to take a few minutes to reflect on a fundamental fact: Without you—the people who visit GovX every day—we wouldn’t be here. We wouldn’t have the chance to work on making GovX.com the best site for military and first responders ever made.
Here at GovX, we do what we’re good at: Getting you savings on the purchases you make. It's our goal to make on and off-duty gear affordable so you can enjoy the life you so greatly deserve. We have immense respect for the causes and organizations out there that dedicate themselves to lasting, invaluable change in the lives of veterans and other service members.
Our cause is of a different kind. What are we really good at? Making GovX a useful and cool benefit for men and women of service everywhere. People like to shop for great products and we figured those who’ve served our country and communities deserve extra savings. It’s an exclusive measure of support for our growing community.
Here’s a story that sticks in our minds: In August of 2013, a Senior Airman serving with the 51st Fighter Wing in South Korea signed up for our site and ordered a LifeProof case for his iPhone. Jane, one of our employees, shipped it off to his APO and included one of our traditional handwritten letters that accompanies every package we send from our office. A week later we received a message on the GovX Facebook page:
“I wanted to say thank you to one of your employees. I’ve been having a rough transition to Korea, and Jane’s card made my day. Having someone take the time to write me a letter, no matter how big or small, is really appreciated. I don’t know Jane, but it’s really awesome for her to take time out of her day to write that. Thanks, Jane.
Consider my faith in humanity restored. - Zach”
Zach’s message reinforced why we do what we do. We put a smile on the face of a member of the military, and we saved him money on the product he bought. Those are our two goals, and we’re dedicated to meeting them every day.
So, as we kick off Military Appreciation Month today, we’re launching a series of special promotions that we think you’ll all appreciate, plus opportunities to save even more on the gear you want. Every order from every day is entered into a drawing to win one special daily prize. That, plus we’ve got free gifts going on with select purchases, as well as extra savings from some truly appreciative brands who are on board with our mission.
So while we may not be changing lives, we do have a massive coalition of brands on our site who stand alongside us and offer the measure of support we aimed for since day one. Wherever your front line is, we want you to know that we appreciate you standing on it.
Thank you. And a happy Military Appreciation Month to every one of our members.
