As two military spouses that relocated to Camp Merrill, just outside of Dahlonega, Georgia, finding a job in our “fields” was proving difficult. In 2011, after much discussion of part time jobs, and trepidation over careers and subsequent futures we decided it was time to take matters into our own hands. Knowing that thousands of capable, inspiring military spouses were in our shoes, R. Riveter looks to provide the security and self reliance of a full or part time job- that will be as mobile and as flexible as the military lifestyle demands we be.
Being a military wife comes with a true sense of pride, strength, and community. R. Riveter is a company based on the ‘We Can Do It’ attitude. Each bag we create is just as unique as the Riveter—the spouse—that makes them; there is a history that goes with each shelter half or wool blanket from which the bags are made. Each R. Riveter purchase goes towards supporting the mission of our brave men and women fighting for our freedoms and the families that stand behind them.
