Coffee is not something we provide. Coffee is the catalyst to bringing people together. It has been said there is no problem too big that it cannot be solved with a hot cup of coffee and an open ear. Steel Fortress Coffee Company is providing a place where people can do just that. Unite, come together and work through our local non-profit supports to strengthen our community and provide much needed resources to our most precious commodity. People.
In 2000 I met my soon to be wife at a social function in a small town in Tennessee. One year later I was enlisted in the Army and married with our first child in tow. A little over two months after our marriage September 11th occured and our lives took a different path. After 17 years of service, almost a dozen deployments, countless TDY and training events, and a total of four children we are still fighting the fight. Our family knows the meaning of sacrifice. We know whats its like to face loss and we understand the challenges our military community faces. We are dedicating our lives to giving back to our community but we cannot do it without you.
Steel Fortress is more than a cup of coffee. We are a place where people can come together and lift each other up, share stories, and stay connected. Be apart of the movement. Check us out today.
