Our men and women in uniform deserve the very best uniforms and equipment and, thanks to the 1941 Berry Amendment, those uniforms must be made in the USA. But a loophole in this amendment excludes athletic footwear and, as a result, the US government spends $15 million annually on footwear vouchers for soldiers, without requiring the footwear to be American made.
This can not be allowed to go on any longer when there are companies in America willing and waiting for this order. Our servicemen are Americans and every part of their uniform down to their sneakers should be made in America.
Please sign the petition to get the President, the Department of Defense, and Congress to see that every part of a US servicemen's uniform is entirley made in the US.
