Oceanic launches USA line to raise money for wounded military members
(DiverWire) The Fourth of July is just around the corner and there isn’t a more patriotic company in the dive industry than Oceanic. The company has just released its colorful and attractive USA LINE which will help raise funds for physically-challenged military members returning from service abroad.
Throughout the years Oceanic has supported the myriad of programs that engage our injured military personnel and introduce them to the sport of diving. This year it was time to launch our own signature program. With the funding made available from the sales of the USA product line, Oceanic hopes to reach and support many more of these veterans than previously possible.
The USA line includes a mask, fin, snorkel and gear bag all trimmed in patriotic red, white and blue colors. Initial sales of the products have been strong and Oceanic officials are looking at possibly expanding the line to include other products.
A percentage of Oceanic’s sales from the USA line will be committed each year towards this program. The company anticipates that this program should provide $250 to each of 300-350 qualified veterans. The $250 will be applied directly to the veterans gear purchases through our participating Oceanic Dealers Nationwide.
