Why we created Patriot List: The Story

Why :

In 2004, a year remembered in military circles for the ferocity of its fighting, Supko was deployed to the Iraqi city of Fallujah. One afternoon, a fellow warrior walked into the command center after a satellite phone call home. Visibly distraught, he informed Supko that his wife had been robbed at gunpoint while selling an old family car through an online classifieds site.

“The last thing deployed service members should have to worry about is loved ones at home being robbed or scammed,” said Supko. “We launched PatriotList.US because we saw a tremendous opportunity to serve our nation’s 22 million military and veteran families by creating a safe peer-to-peer marketplace.”

“Unlike the most commonly used marketplaces in the United States, where anonymity and safety concerns remain constant, there is trust and reliability inherent to our military and veteran communities,” said Supko. “Military and veteran families already keep faith with one another and prefer to do business with each other. We’re just making that easier.”
