The Tip is 'Where They're Proud'
I recently saw an ad in our local newspaper for a big box home improvement store. Their newspaper ad had USA made products and American flags all over it. Several weeks later, I checked the ad again and sure enough they were still advertising their American made products. It was obvious they are proud to carry products Made in America.
Their competitors made no mention of things Made in America. I have been to this store and asked what products are made in the USA? A clerk told me they primarily carry imports. Obviously they are not proud.
I now realize you can buy many Made in the USA building supplies, including tools Made in USA and appliances Made in USA., in stores that are proud to carry brands Made in the USA.
Here is another example of a store proudly carrying products Made in the USA. I was shopping for men's shoes in a local department store when I tried on three different pairs of shoes. I couldn't decide which pair I wanted so I went out on a limb and asked the clerk, "Are these shoes imports?" The salesman said "yes they are" so I asked, "Do you have any Made in America shoes like these?". To my surprise he said, with GREAT PRIDE, "yes sir, we have a whole line of Made In USA shoes".
He brought me the same color and style with the Made in USA label. These Made in America shoes were less expensive, came with a better warranty, and were more comfortable.
Looking for companies that are PROUD is simple and can have a great impact on our country. I encourage you to try this some time- just ask. You will love it when you realize you are making a difference that all of us will benefit from. With your help America will be ours again and that is a good thing.

How DRIFIRE Is Different.
Engineered for inherent flame resistance, DRIFIRE flame resistant workwear provides a potentially life-saving layer of protection. Garments and undergarments made with DRIFIRE flame retardant fabrics help to promote FR compliance by ensuring workers stay comfortable in a wide range of work environments. Our flame resistant fabrics dry faster than cotton, will not melt or drip, and will not deteriorate in performance with time and use. While not designed for direct, ongoing exposure to open flames or fire, our flame resistant fabrics and flame resistant workwear are engineered to withstand short exposure to flame and arc flashes without igniting or melting and dripping on wearers' skin. Once the source of flame is removed, our Comfortable FR Wear will immediately self-extinguish, limiting the amount of direct exposure to flame for wearers. Additionally, by keeping wearers drier and more comfortable, DRIFIRE helps to reduce the potential for steam burns and increases wearers' ability to focus on the task at hand.
