Introduction
The Story

In 2003, 21 year old Marine Corporal Noah Currier from Poplar Grove, IL, was deployed to Iraq with Charlie Co 1st LAR as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Three days after arriving home from combat Noah and a fellow Marine were in a vehicle headed back toward Camp Pendleton when the driver fell asleep at the wheel sending their vehicle rolling down an embankment. Noah suffered a severe paralyzing spinal cord injury from the accident.

Seeking a way to afford the necessary physical therapy for himself and a fellow disabled Marine, Noah came up with the concept of using a t-shirt inspired by his brotherhood in the Marine Corps as a fundraiser. He designed a shirt that boldly stated He who sheds blood with me shall forever be my brother across the back. The shirts quickly caught on with supporters and the fundraiser turned out to be an overwhelming success. Enough units were sold to afford Noah and his friend another six months of additional life-changing physical therapy.

Since then, this one-time fundraiser has evolved into a mission to help others in similar positions of need.

The Mission


“Staying active and on the move is the key to recovering physically and mentally after any injury” 
- Noah Currier 

“The thought process was simple”, states Currier. “We must expand this approach to help others. If disabled Veterans create an organization, then they have a unique opportunity to lead by example, inspire movement, hire other disabled Veterans and help our economy by making everything right here in the U.S.”.

The only thing left to do was pick the perfect name to bring it all together. Oscar Mike is radio jargon used by troops on the front lines to say, “Get On-the-Move!”, hence making it the perfect moniker for an organization who’s core is motivating and inspiring an active, positive and productive lifestyle.

Noah also noticed a significant void in American made apparel products, and thus vowed to keep Oscar Mike 100% American made from start to finish.

Oscar Mike Today


Since that initial fundraiser, Noah has turned Oscar Mike into a full-fledged clothing line consisting of 100% American made military themed apparel and brand-line active wear. Oscar Mike has allowed Noah to employ other disabled Vets, aid in rehabilitative programs, organize a disabled Veteran based non-profit (The Oscar Mike Foundation) and not to be overlooked, it’s allowed Noah to stay On the Move in his own personal life after his injury.

Oscar Mike has been monumental in making a difference in many people’s daily lives and will continue to do so with the unwavering support of people like YOU.

“…the best part is, we’re just getting started. Join Team Oscar Mike and help us help others to stay On the Move.”
-Noah Currier
