The Feet of a Solider

Comments (0)

My husband is currently serving in the Illinois National Guard and recently returned home from a year long deployment. I always enjoyed our conversations while he was overseas since they were far and few between.  One particular day he had called from Egypt and could not stop complaining about how sweaty and smelly his feet were. Finally by the end of our conversation I couldn’t take it anymore- I told him I was going to mail him a few pairs of socks and some foot spray for him to use.

A few days went by with no word from my husband and then one afternoon he called and without saying “Hi” he exclaimed “What on earth did you give me? It’s amazing!”. I told him the socks were Aetrex copper sole socks which wick away sweat and are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and odor-eliminating!  These socks have been lab tested and clinically proven to help prevent bacteria, fungi, odor, as well as improve skin texture and appearance.  They even worked in the harsh desert conditions of Egypt with the dungy routine of a soldier!

The spray I sent him was Gordon Laboratories Gordon’s #5 Spray Foot Powder.  Gordon’s #5 is a convenient alternative to conventional powder or lotion for on-the-go people, just like my military husband.  Instead of rubbing in a lotion or sprinkling powder all over, Gordon’s #5 is simply sprayed on your feet.  It’s powder in a spray form!  People can even enjoy the benefits of this product while wearing sandals or no shoes at all!

After telling my husband all of this, he informed me that a few of his fellow military friends were jealous and wanted me to send them some socks and foot spray too.  As I laughed at the thought of grown men being jealous of each other’s foot care products, I was just happy that I could help their sweaty, smelly feet- even being thousands of miles away.
