Rak Wear has created Memorial Pins for Law Enforcement, EMS, and the Fire Service. The pins were sent to me last week for a product review.
Each of these pins is made of high quality 3D polished nickel and enameled. The pins are 3/4″ high and 1 1/4″ wide. They look great and are a perfect size for many uses. You could wear this on your Class A uniform, your regular duty uniform, they would even work on your class b uniform. I guess it al depends on what uniforms your department issues.
These aren’t made just for Police Officers, EMT’s, and Firefighters though. These are for everyone to show support of Law Enforcement Officers, EMT’s & Paramedics, and Firefighters.
The pins represent The Thin Blue Line (Police), The Thin White Line (EMS), and The Thin Red Line (Fire). Keep reading below for what these pins represent. Rak Wear did a great job with these pins!
These pins just hit the market this weekend and are being sold as a three pin set on Daily911Deals.com. For a limited time, you can get three pins for 50% off! Check out the deal here:
History of The Thin Blue Line:
The Thin Blue Line is a symbol in use in the United States to show support for Law Enforcement Officers. Since then, there have many others created including the Thin Red Line for Firefighters and Thin White Line for EMT’s.
Although the original is the “Thin Blue Line”, its origin is the historical “Thin Red Line” which references the Battle of Balaclava on October 25, 1854.
The Blue represents the officer and the courage they find deep inside when faced with insurmountable odds.
The Black background was designed as a constant reminder of our fallen brother and sister officers.
The Line, the line is what cops protect, the barrier between anomie and a civilized society, between order and chaos, between respect for decency and lawlessness.
Together they symbolize the camaraderie law enforcement officers all share, a brotherhood like no other.
Since the creation of The Thin Blue Line, there have been many others created…including The Thin White Line and The Thin Red Line.
You might remember that I did a product review on Three Rak Wear Shirts here. The crew at Rak Wear actually had to take some time off due to an illness. They are back…with a vengence. This is the first new product since getting back on the radar screen. Rak Wear is led by a woman who has a keen understanding for Public Safety. Check out all of the great products at Rak-Wear.com!
