Hometown: Colorado Springs, CO 
Name/Alias: Nicholas Place 
MOS: 8404 
Unit: 1st Marine Division 
Rank: Hm3/E4

Why I joined the Military: I joined the military as a corpsman to learn and grow as a person. I wanted to be a part of my family’s tradition of serving honorably and being part of something bigger than myself. Once I was in the military I did it because of the men I worked with; for the men who became my brothers.  

Why I joined Handmade By Heroes: I joined Handmade By Heroes to work with other veterans and to be a part of the community. I believe it’s a great thing that brings veterans together.  

Message to customers…Thank you for supporting us and all veterans who create products. We appreciate it more than you know and we are more than happy to make something you will enjoy.  

My favorite sports team and why…Colorado Avalanche because they’re the best team ever.

My boss showed me his Red Sox bracelet, which I thought was pretty cool! Then he explained what this company is about, and I asked, “Do they have Steelers ones?” They did. I had to have one. Awesome job you guys!!
