You may already know that Hat N’ Patch is a 100% Veteran Owned and Operated business but did you know we are also a 100% Family Owned and Operated business as well? We are a father-son team of Retired Marines and a lone Army Veteran of this operation.
Rod Truitt – CEO/Co-Founder. Rod began his career in the United States Marine Corps in the Artillery but couldn’t resist the siren’s call of Recruiting. After dedicating 20 years to the Corps, he retired as a Master Sergeant. When not steering Hat N’ Patch’s ship, you can find Rod fishing off the coast of North Carolina, drinking red beers and debating politics, often times escorted by his beloved Border Collie, Ringo.
Chad Truitt – Warehouse/Shipping Manager. Chad followed in his father’s (yellow) footprints and also joined the Marine Corps. He worked on CH-46s, CH-53s, AH-1s and UH-1s and served in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. After retiring from the Marine Corps, Chad moved his family from the balmy Gulf Coast of Florida to the windy plains of Spokane, WA to join forces with his father, Rod and now in North Carolina. If not working, Chad can be found at the local fishing holeor a local craft beer joint.
Hat n' Patch has gone through many transitions over the years and now strictly an online business not only on this site but also now with selected items on Amazon, Ebay, Etsy and Walmart's website. We are constantly working to improve our site, business model and always looking for new, quality products for our customers. We look forward to serving you and your business is appreciated here!
