Assault Forward

American Made Accessories & Apparel

The Reverse American Flag
Our business is based on a unique and deeply meaningful depiction of the American Flag. All three of us deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan during our time on active duty. While in combat we wore the reverse flag on the right shoulder of our uniforms – field of stars to the right, charging into battle.  While serving in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom the patch worn was subdued in color – just like our products.

Made in USA

Our products are all made right here in the United States of America.  We are committed to US manufacturing and partnering with other American companies (especially Veteran-Owned businesses) in all areas of our operations.  American manufacturing equals American jobs.

Veteran Owned & Operated Assault Forward was founded by three US Army Veterans based in the Washington D.C. area. We wanted to show our pride of service and support of the military by displaying a reverse American flag in professional settings. We created our unique products for those who have served in uniform and those patriotic Americans who want a stylish and unique way to show their support.  Anyone can wear our products with pride.
