About us

AC-130 Firing

Danger Close Apparel began with creating a few funny shirts for the special operations community and friends.  This idea has now evolved into a small Veteran-owned business, selling shirts, mugs, beer steins, and more.

Danger Close Apparel has one mission: To provide Veteran-inspired apparel for Veterans and their friends, family, and supporter.  We also give back to community by donating to charities such as the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, which provides college scholarships and educational assistance to the surviving children of special operators killed in combat.

Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF)

Danger Close Apparel will always maintain high standards of quality for our products, and we will strive to bring you creative and original designs that you will love and be proud to wear.
