NEW YORK, Jan. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Valor Blocks today announced the launch of the world's first official armed forces subscription box program. Valor Blocks will provide uniquely-sourced items for purchase by family members, friends and supporters of the U.S. Army on both a monthly and quarterly basis. Recognizing that the U.S. Army has admirers both at home and abroad, the e-commerce retailer will provide the opportunity for dedicated supporters to purchase the boxes (also known as "Blocks"), regardless of their locale, by visiting ValorBlocks.com
"To us, 'valor' represents the incredible strength and courage of the world's protective forces," says Russ Montague, founder and CEO, Valor Blocks. "We're honored to be able to showcase products that shine a well-deserved light on the sacrifices that members of U.S. Army make every day."
Valor Blocks subscription boxes are exclusive custom-curated collections of themed T-shirts, hats, books, magazines, electronic accessories, housewares, personal care items and more.

The company also knows that military personnel, veterans, their family and friends and patriotic Americans are always looking for ways to celebrate the unique and dedicated world of America's armed forces. A cornerstone of these U.S. Armed Forces partnerships with Valor Blocks is the company's commitment to source ethically-produced goods of the highest quality, and to ensure that each block shipped is built in America, by Americans, to honor America. Best of all, Valor Blocks plans to participate in programs that support military and their families.
