IRONWOOD, MI (September 2, 2022) – Stormy Kromer is proud to collaborate once again with the Upper Peninsula Honor Flight. After a two-year hiatus, the Upper Peninsula Honor Flight is once again transporting veterans to Washington D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials, with 3 missions occurring in 2022.
To honor and support these missions, Stormy Kromer has created two limited-edition cap styles – an Original Stormy Kromer Cap in iconic red/black plaid and a Trail Cap in navy, lightweight waxed cotton – with half of the purchase price of each cap going directly to the Upper Peninsula Honor Flight in support of their noble work. The caps both include the Upper Peninsula Honor Flight logo embroidered on the side of the earband.
“Creating caps for a cause like this is the result of our location and longevity,” shared Gina
Thorsen, Stormy Kromer CEO, “as a heritage company based in the Upper Peninsula, we are proud to support and honor the veterans that call the U.P. home, especially during a month when two missions are being flown to Washington D.C.”
As part of the national Honor Flight system, the Upper Peninsula Honor Flight is a non-profit
organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices. Their focus is helping
veterans of the U.P. to see the memorials that stand in their honor through a completely free
Tour of Honor trip.
“We appreciate the way Stormy Kromer has supported our mission in the past and they continue to support our Upper Peninsula heroes through these latest limited-edition caps,” says Scott Knauf, UPper Peninsula Honor Flight Director. “Thank you Stormy Kromer!”
The 2022 commemorative Stormy Kromer caps will be on sale through October 6th. Caps can be ordered on the Stormy Kromer website. For more information on the Honor Flight program, including applications for veterans and guardians, visit their website.
