I am starting to mow one active duty military lawn for free per month. I was in the Army for 6 yrs and know how much it would help out if I was deployed. I hope to get more local LLC to do the same. Thanks for all you do and I hope to be Gopher Hauled soon.Thanks,Rick

This is his truck picture.


Here is a logo he came up with.



Rick,

Have you looked through our logo collection here to see if anything caught your eye?

Also I was wondering, didn't you say you were injured during your military duty? Did you receive a Purple Heart? If so, do you know if anyone ever uses such information in their business marketing? It's a great human story.

Well, I am very happy to hear you are ok now I think it would be very interesting to include your military background history in your marketing. I think it helps you reach out and connect with the potential customer. Do you have any pictures of you serving in the military?
