Behind the “Yank”


In a time before America had an identity, a diverse group of soldiers created a voice. Diverse, yet united, people banned together proudly and stood for what they believed. Thus, the United States came to be; and steadily evolved to define Americans by this shared set of values.

Anyone who was willing to humbly give up his prior identity and assume a new American persona became an American, or a “Yankee” (later being further shortened to Yank).

I was 9 years old when my father passed away. He was only 33, but had already accomplished a lot by serving this great Country of ours as an American soldier. I never got to hear his stories due to him passing away so young.

The time with my grandfather had a huge impact on my life and who I am today. He was a WWII veteran, fought in Japan and sacrificed everything he had for us and our country. I spent every summer over at my grandparents’ house watching black and white WWII movies and seeing how it affected him.

What we Stand for:

We are United - Individually, each of us has the power to succeed. But when we come together as one, we are united. We show our individualism proudly while uniting as one for the greater good. United, we can overcome any obstacle. We stand together proudly. We must withstand, without breaking.

We are Proud - Be yourself. Be yourself proudly, originally, and unapologetically. Stand for your beliefs; stand for your style; stand for yourself. Let the world know the true proud American spirit that lives within us all.

We are Humble - The world will see more in your actions than your words. Climb the mountain so you can see the world, not so the world can see you. Don’t expect the world to fall at your feet. Go out and conquer it!
