My name is Ron. I am a disabled Veteran with a special weapons background. I became interested in forming this business because I felt vulnerable while using an ordinary cane.
Like most people who use a walking cane, I felt like a target, alerting criminals that I was less able to defend myself, thus easy prey.
I searched for a product that would provide stability and self-protection if needed. Not finding what I was looking for, I re-engineered the ordinary walking cane by using strong aircraft grade aluminum and integrating a lower solid steel core, resulting in Patriot Cane. It was such a success that I decided to share it with others.
Our end user is anyone who feels vulnerable in public while walking with a cane or anyone who needs a cane for stability. Our aim is to enable all people looking for safety, security and stability with a product that provides the support needed, while also being very stylish.
Our canes are adjustable from 32" to 41" (with 1" intervals between) making them ideal for each user. They are adaptable for either right or left hand users, have an attached wrist strap and support up to 250 pounds. Like all of our canes, they become a Patriot Cane because of the strategically-designed lower solid steel core shaft which provides added stability, safety and self-protection.
At Patriot Cane, our mission is to introduce our superior walking canes to anyone who needs assistance in walking or feels vulnerable while using a cane. We emphasize stability, safety and self-protection.
Many veterans return home with PTSD and have no strong support system or even know what to do once they are home. We at Patriot Cane know how important a support system is and aspire to offering help to those veterans.
Our ultimate goal is to develop an education program with the intent of hiring 100 veterans every year, educate them in the fields of welding, pipe cutting and customer relations, and placing them in long term jobs with businesses in their area.
We further plan to offer housing to the veterans in our program if they need it; we will make sure they get the health care they need; and we will teach them new skills needed in America today. We can't do any of this without the support of American patriots helping us along the way. By purchasing our canes, you are helping support the veterans who need us the most.
Together, we become the support system needed by the men and women who served our great country.
