Product Description



“Don't be ashamed of needing help. You have a duty to fulfill just like a soldier on the wall of battle. So what if you are injured and can't climb up without another soldier's help?” - Marcus Aurelius

We understand that trauma and stress can affect first responders and that agencies, peers, and families need to be aware and have a support plan, but at a certain point the responder and/or family must fight for themselves. They can't be passive actors in their own salvation or even prevention. Mental health survival starts with a #SoWhat response to an absence of support. I'll go build my own and share it with my peers.

While we say we’re never alone - that’s not always true. When the lights go out and the night is silent, we are alone with only our thoughts. So many members of our team have had that painful lonely experience - where it really was them against the world. Even for a brief moment, just long enough to find the strength to say, #SoWhat.

Even alone in our darkest hours, each one of us in one way or another has said silently or out loud, #SoWhat. 

For the family left behind, in the immediate aftermath they need full support. We will say on their behalf, #SoWhat while we help them to their feet, but eventually, like all of you, they will also say #SoWhat and trudge forward one step at a time. If they fall again, #SoWhat? Someone helps them back up, and they move forward again. For the responders struggling to calm the chaos in their heads who are strong enough to say, #SoWhat, we will help them search for resources, and when they fall again, someone will help them back to their feet. And that’s OK.

Families, responders, and sponsors who are strong enough to say, #SoWhat set the conditions for others to follow. So, to all of you who are fighting your way forward every day as a member of this team, we’re proud of you and celebrate your accomplishments by saying loud and proud on your behalf, #SoWhat if we need each other?

For all of you standing here with us today, you are warriors, and it’s an honor to serve with you.

Proud to Support Those Who Serve & Protect

With every purchase, we’re able to give back to organizations that have the same values we do: supporting the mental health of our veterans and first responders. We’re proud to be a partner in the fight against hero suicide.

Who We Are

Freedom Fatigues is a veteran and LE owned and operated company producing only American-made apparel and accessories. We don't just print in the USA - we MAKE it here! 🇺🇸


“Made in America” isn’t just a label we slap on our products. It means something to us. You can be confident that every stitch and seam was sewn right here. We have spent countless hours sourcing and selecting small businesses to partner with in order to provide our customers with superior-quality, truly American-made products they can feel proud to wear and that embody the American way of life.


Born from a love for our country and a desire to serve, Freedom Fatigues allows us to support our fellow veterans and first responders who are struggling with mental health issues as a result of their service to our country and/or their communities. Our mission is to bring awareness to cumulative PTSD and hero suicide and we do this by giving back to nonprofits who are committed to the same purpose.


Chris spent 9 years in the Air National Guard proudly serving his country and 18 years as a police officer, proudly serving his community. But, a serious, career-ending accident on duty (and subsequent spinal surgeries) left him questioning his purpose – for his family and the world. Freedom Fatigues gave Chris the sense of meaning and direction that had been missing since the accident. The business allows him to give back and stay connected to the military and law-enforcement communities that were such a large part of his life.


Purchases on our site help us support other small American businesses that we partner with, including fellow veteran-owned companies, multi-generational family-owned businesses, and LEO-owned and operated companies. We do our part to support American manufacturing and jobs, and every purchase made enables these efforts.
