We all appreciate veterans for their service. One sock company is devoted to saying thanks. In this episode of Hilary Topper on Air, Hilary speaks with Joshua Law, President of Boldfoot Socks, a 100% American Grown and American Sewn sock company.
Joshua grew up in a town of 300 people in Illinois. He's the middle child of five siblings. After high school, he attended Western Illinois University and graduated with a degree in Special Education. After graduation, he moved to Las Vegas, NV with his brother Jay. He taught special education for four years. During his 4th year September 11th occurred. Within a week he was at an Army recruiting office and signed up as an Army Infantryman. He left for the Army in August of 2002 and spent one year in Iraq from April 2004 - April 2005. He was stationed in Taji, Iraq just outside Baghdad. During that time his unit was also deployed to Najaf and Fallujah, Iraq. After the Army, he returned to Las Vegas and ended up joining the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. He has been with them for 17 years. Josh's main hobby is running - specifically ultra running. He has run in 13 or so 50k's, multiple 8-hour races, 2 last-man-standing races, a 50-miler, a 100k, and a 100 miler. His favorite race is the Leadville Marathon which has become a family affair.
