Veterans Day. A day where we say "Thank You" to those that have put their country before themselves. One day is simply not enough for us to express our gratitude, as everyday is Veterans Day here at Beard Octane.
This year, Beard Octane has partnered with KC Mitchell, an internationally recognized powerlifter, US Army veteran, and motivational speak who lost his leg while in the military after being deployed in Afghanistan. The harrowing events that occurred while part of a first striker team that was hit by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) would forever change his life. Not only did he sustain second and third-degree burns, but he also found himself with a broken forearm and numerous shrapnel wounds. The day would soon come when KC, who had lost all feeling in his left leg, would make the decision to get his leg amputated. While initially it was something he struggled with, he ultimately figured out how to reverse the downward spiral he was in. The radical departure from the dark days that KC experienced after losing his leg was accompanied by changing the way he looked. Growing his iconic Viking-style beard would become a part of his new identity and persona, helping him distance himself even further from the tragic events that befell him in Afghanistan.
As a nod to how growing out his defining beard helped shape who he now is, KC has teamed up with Beard Octane to develop an exclusive line of beard care products named, SACRIFICE. The new scent that has been cooked up by the facial fur experts at Beard Octane is a manly blend of scents that includes hints of bergamot, amber, sandalwood, and mint.
