ST. CHARLES, Mo. -(Ammoland.com)- Propper International has won two new contracts to supply hot weather boots to the United States Army and the Afghanistan military.

    Puerto Rico is a US territory. It is part of the USA although not a state. If it were a state it would cost the government much more to support it. I feel it is important that Puerto Rico remain part of the USA . Puerto Rico needs jobs in business to be self-sufficient as opposed to a sinkhole for the US government to support. It is also vitally important strategically in the Caribbean area. I have no problem buying products from them before I would ever buy from China and Indonesia or other foreign Third World countries

    Like the USA don’t need jobs ! If you look at some of the clothes there made in China and it’s wrong that our military has to pay for Chinese clothes! Anyway you look at it it’s wrong PR or China not right!

    It may be a territory, but it isn’t the USA!

    Saying that doesn’t make it true. You have a firm grasp of unreality.

    @Cea and Mike M, I don’t think that Puerto Rico is even a territory. I think that PR is a possession of the US and the people are nationals of the US (as opposed to citizens), as I recall.

    Well look, products made in PR are 100% berry compliant. You could argue jobs could go TX or AZ or any other state, but that’s just opinion. These boots are in fact 100% made in the USA

    One could also observe that if we did not send some work there, the they would come here, and you can not stop a national of the US from coming into the US proper.

    I feel it’s wrong that our military clothing is not made in the USA ! This should be proposed at time of contact! Our uniforms and anything to do with the US Military should be made by Americans!
