Got Your Six Coffee Co. (GY6CC)

Got Your Six Coffee Co. (GY6CC) is passionate about helping veterans and others who put their lives on the line everyday to serve and protect us. Because of that a portion of all the profits from Got Your Six Coffee go to our non-profit, GY6 Foundation which has a primary mission to ‘serve those who serve’. Veteran homelessness, veteran suicides, and the daily struggles that veterans, LEO’s, EMT’s and Fire Fighters have with respect to PTSD needs to be addressed and we intend to lend a hand with that… 8 of them to be exact. That is exactly why we have an octopus as part of our logo because we are lending a hand, or arm in this case, to members of the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy, Marine Corp, Law Enforment, Emergency Medical Technicians and those in the Fire Fighting community.

I suddenly found myself choked up with emotion because I saw through him that what I was doing is being noticed. Not just noticed by the public but being noticed by my son! Who would have figured that...

Over the past week the southern and the midwestern states have been hit pretty hard with tragedy. Everything from tornadoes down south to massive flooding up here in the midwest, and amidst it all, I have seen a variety of posts on Facebook that have inspired me to say something. The most recent being a video of several bystanders who were working ferociously to rescue two small children from a truck that had been turned over into a flood zone....
