US Army – 245 Years Young

June 14, 1775 – 245 years ago our US Army was founded. The Army is the largest in terms of personnel of all the 5 branches. 2MyHero is proud to be able to offer unique greeting cards – including Happy Birthday cards – for this branch of service.

2MyHero offers two unique and humorous designs for Happy Birthday greetings for Soldiers. Have your cupcake and protect it too (above), and I like your style (below). Both color and patter for the text and images reflect the unique black and gold of the US Army logo. Speaking of which, 2MyHero is unique among card companies in that it holds license agreements with all 5 military branches.

What does it mean to hold a license agreement? It means that each design is submitted to the trademark office and must receive approval before it can be printed or sold. It also means that each sale is reported to the trademark office on a quarterly basis and royalties are paid. Each branch has a little bit different minimum, percentage per item and format for submitting royalties.

The top selling 2MyHero military greeting card in the US Army category is actually a pretty close tie between the A Soldier Now and the Destined cards. Whether purchased on Amazon, Etsy or the 2MyHero website these two are consistent sellers with the most reviews.

Both A Soldier Now and Destined have been updated from their original design to incorporate the new woodland pattern ACU pattern. (ACU = Army Combat Uniform). It’s one of the ways 2MyHero is always working towards relevance and vibrancy in the designs.

Soldiers are both male and female, and because of that 2MyHero also offers a unique military greeting card designed specifically for female Soldiers. Still a Lady can be given at any point in a female Soldiers’ career to let her know how much you respect her hard work and accomplishment.

If your Soldier is heading to or recently started boot camp at one of the 4 US Army boot camp locations (Fort Benning, GA, Fort Jackson, SC, Fort Leonard Wood, MO, and Fort Sill, OK) then you will want to purchase the money-saving mixed pack of 6 cards. The Mixed Pack includes 1 Graduation, 3 Encouragement, 1 Drill Sergeant Thank you, and 1 Happy Birthday military greeting card.

One tip: be sure you don’t give the drill sergeant card until AFTER boot camp graduation. You’ll save your Soldier MAJOR harassment!

In addition to graduation and encouragement military greeting cards, 2MyHero also offers Promotion, and Retirement cards. Promotion greeting cards are not specific to rank. These could be given to either enlisted or commissioned officer Soldiers at graduation, or when a specific rank or skill has been achieved.

In the Retirement military greeting card category, there are both Enlisted and Commissioned Officer specific Retirement designs available. When an officer retires from service they will rarely wear the uniform again, except maybe to march in Veteran’s Day parades. Retirement is a great time to let them know that the skills and respect they earned while serving is recognized and praised.

Beyond individual military greeting cards, 2MyHero also offers packs of Thank You note cards, and Custom note cards. Classic in style, and brimming with Army pride, these make a wonderful gift for Soldiers for any occasion. Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Birthday, Promotion or Retirement parties. I know several retired military personnel who keep these on hand and use them even though they no longer are active duty.
