MADE IN THE USA
While there are many talented people in other countries, we keep all of our work in the USA. We don't outsource to save money. All of our freelancers are veterans or spouses. Happy Joe is proud to be an American company.
The Happy Joe Name
When we crafted the Happy Joe name, it was all about going against the grain. With so much negativity out there, we want to focus on the positive with our brand. Our goal is to combat the negative stereotypes and stigmas surrounding veterans. It’s time for a happier and healthier image of our veterans and their families.
HAPPY: We hope it's obvious. Instead of painting the typical picture of despair, hurt, pain, or wounds, we wanted to show a happier and positive side of veteran’s lives. The world needs more good in it.
JOE: “Joe” is a nickname given to US Army soldiers back in WWII. However, it’s been used in all branches of the military. It's a historic and generic term that honors all veterans, regardless of their Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) or branch of service.
TWO THUMBS UP: Our original tagline “Two Thumbs Up for Military Veterans" communicates we are good to go or squared away. We opted to stay away from the traditional military salute because we're untraditional.
THE CHARACTER: Private Joe Snuffy served somewhere. We can't give you the details because it's classified. He might smile a lot, but he can also kick ass when it's needed.
