Army (West Point) Themed Soaps: Part 1

Most of you probably don’t know I’m an Army Brat.  I grew up moving from place to place (13 moves in 18 years!).  I loved it.  I didn’t know any other way of life then (I had my first move at 7 weeks old!  And overseas to boot.) but looking back now I wouldn’t change a thing.  I spent ten years of my first eighteen living in Europe. I learned how to be independent and I learned how to speak a foreign language (pretty fluently, because I attended a French high school for three years).

I am, through and through, an Army Brat and proud of it.  My grandfather was in the Army, my brother is, and my Dad spent 22 years in the Army before retiring to a civilian job.  My dad went to West Point.  Every year (since my family settled in MA) we’ve gotten together with family and gone to a Army Football game for a day of tailgating, football, and lots of fun.

Last year I when I was in one of the small gift shops at West Point I asked the shop if they did wholesale and might be interested in selling my soaps.  They said they would definitely consider it.  We’re heading back to West Point in September for our yearly football game and I’m going armed with Army/West Point themed soaps to show them this time (and my wholesale agreement/pricing). I’m super excited about these soaps.  I came up with five different designs.  Most are the West Point Gold-Black and Gray color theme.  With a red-white and blue themed soap as well as the U.S. Army logo.

This is the Army Logo:


All in all I think “Army” minded people will see the resemblance in the soap to the logo.
