From the Author: As I am researching a blanket I find myself reading articles about the first 100 days of the Global War on Terror, then on when the GWOT medal ceased..then on Joe Biden signing a law beginning the construction of the GWOT memorial in the National Mall.I see four different patterns of uniforms. I see the words victory, loss, I see photos of men hiking 240’s up a mountain side which bring my thoughts to my friends..my friends that lost their friends..my friends that watched this war begin..and “end”..and experience different but yet all the same new wars begin.
As I am researching a blanket.
In early December 2021, Kitfox Design Group sent a call out for Global War on Terrorism Veterans to complete a survey about their time in. Just doing this shows how authentic they want this blanket to be. To capture and honor those who served. Twenty years of service went into months of sketching for KitFox to design a truly inspiring blanket. Well soon, that blanket will be available to order.
Much like the previous Vietnam blanket drop that so many fell in love with, (I myself have one draped over my chair in front of the fireplace) Kitfox will be doing the same type of timeline as far as informational teasers, updates, and preorders.

The blankets will be available for pre-order Friday May 6th at 9am Central and will stay open through Monday May 16th at 11:59ish PM Central.
There is an estimated 6-8 week lead time (but just like the Vietnam Throw, it might be shorter) depending on the quantity of orders. Should we surpass the expected quantity somehow, we’ll update the pre-order confirmation check box at checkout with current lead times. The goal in this scenario will be to have a pallet shipped to us at a time so we can get blankets out in waves in the order they were purchased.
To stay up to date on this collection, please sign up for the newsletter. You’ll get regular updates and some behind the scenes secret updates that the main list won’t be receiving.

PSA: Kitfox just included a photo of a sample blanket in their last email. I won’t include it here due to it being in the private email sign ups distro, so go sign up so you can get a look.
