In this seventh episode of our Solidarity of Service podcast, hosts Kevin Schmiegel and Sherman Gillums Jr. speak with Oscar Mike Apparel’s founder and CEO Noah Currier.
Currier is a Marine veteran who was paralyzed in a vehicle accident in 2003, just three days after returning from a combat deployment to Iraq. He says the mission at Oscar Mike is to recognize and highlight those unsung heroes who are making a real difference in the lives of others. The Oscar Mike Foundation and proceeds from Oscar Mike Apparel sales allow OM to host events and opportunities that support injured Veterans and encourage them to get and stay active. Currier says this idea of service to others has been “baked into” his original business model since its inception nearly a decade ago. Gillums, Schmiegel, and Currier discuss what it takes to find success and the responsibility that comes with being a leader of a service-minded mission. Currier shares his vision for the future of Oscar Mike, which also aligns with Operation Gratitude’s mission to build bridges between the civilian and military communities.
