Here at Murphy’s Naturals, a veteran-owned company, we’re so honored to be part of the 2019 Bicycle Collector’s Card Deck! This Collector’s Deck highlights interesting and successful post 9/11 ventures launched by the military community.
It's been 16 years since Bicycle released their "Most Wanted Iraqi's" Collector's Card Deck. Marjorie K. Eastman put her heart and soul into creating an updated deck: the Frontline Leaders, featuring organizations that were shaped by this "post 9/11" America.
"Fast forward to today, and it's the first time that Bicycle has done a collectible that's military-related since 9/11," Eastman said. "And now we have the deck of the good guys, which is our military community."
Eastman served following 9/11 as a U.S. Army intelligence officer and commander. Her service as a member of the military following 9/11 is discussed in her 2017 book, "The Frontline Generation," and inspired the deck she created. The deck features 52 businesses and charities that are connected to the military in some way. Every branch of the military, along with Gold Star families, are all represented in the deck.
"It's hard to pick a favorite," Eastman said.
Eastman said meeting the owners of each company and charity reminded her of the connection shared in the military community. Read more about her story behind the deck here.
