#PersonBehindThePack: A Story About American Heroism and Heritage
To Duluth Pack:
My name is Michael J. Van Edwards and I was a Deep Sea Diver in the Navy for over 10 years.
Many of my dives involved travel all over the world to include areas that were known to be hostile or even dangerous to Americans.
Many American servicemen were targets of attack and at least one Navy diver was killed by Terrorist.
Later, the investigation revealed that the divers were identified by the military-style of baggage they carried.
Upon hearing this, I contacted your store and had ordered a large duffle to serve as a dive bag.
For a decade that duffle traveled all over the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean, Red, and Caribbean seas.
Additionally, it survived hundreds of flights in or from most of the countries whose shores border those waters.
Today, the bag is over 30 years old and I still use it constantly.
Thank you all for such an outstanding product.
- M. Van Edwards
