Being that our Mission Viejo location is so close to Camp Pendelton, we see Marines and Navy personnel all day, every day. They are about half of our client base here and we support them as much as they support us. As a matter of fact, Stacy, our store manager, is a Former Marine.
Well, we had this amazing girl named Allee Campbell stumble into our store one day. We got to talking and she told us that she started this website called Camo Connect. It is a Military Social Network that specializes in “Connecting All Military Others”.
Basically, when the Military relocates a family (which most know happens all the time) it will help family members connect with other Military families in the area. Those in the military will quickly meet fellow servicemen while the family members are left to make friends on their own. This is a possible solution to the problem and can really help family members feel less alone during deployments, training at other bases, and any of the other reasons the military can come up with to take those who serve away from their families for extended periods of time.
Allee says, “I love the fact that no matter who I meet who has a loved one in the military, there’s and immediate bond with that person. We just understand each other.”
Here at Lovesac we see a lot of Marines and families new to the area, looking for furniture, and friends. We couldn’t be more excited to share this AWESOME site with you guys and spotlight our amazing friend Allee who started this site.
A special thank you to everyone who has and is still serving in our military. Also, a thank you to their families and loved ones for supporting them through the ups and downs. We wouldn’t be here without you.
