Thank you for the feedback - the txt on the rockers are custom and it can say whatever you would like.I think they look sharp!!! I agree wholeheartedly with one of our officers in the rank. We need to honor our LEO’s but more importantly, we need to protect them. I’m not a fan of having our rank or anything easy for the public to identify us, ie. “Officer Smith”. I do like the idea of maybe a star of life for EMS, Maltese cross for Fire / Rescue, and a badge for LEO. I think they should be clear for members to recognize, but subtle for the general public to walk right past without noticing. Maybe the font could simply read “Defender” on all of them. Kind of like the defender or guardian badge. And the small symbol would identify our profession. Then we could extend this edition to military personnel using the symbol from their respective branch of the service. You can use guardian for public safety and use defender for military. Just brainstorming, hope it helps bro!
Not sure if this is still going on but I am definitely interested.Hey all,
This is a drawing! By popular demand, we are creating metal rockers that will fit seamlessly on the bottom of your Overland Bound Emblem. We are about to do a test production run of the first rocker, which will be specifically designed for First Responders.
We would like to produce the first one for an existing Overland Bound Member.
If you are a first Responder, Police, Fire, Medical, please respond to this thread and we will produce the first rocker for a lucky winner.
Rockers will be available in a few categories including first responders, military, olb benefactor, member, etc, and will have a unique icon for each. Members will then be able to put a custom phrase, laser etched on the rocker. It can be unit, name, or other designation. We will add more, and we are still thinking of new rocker categories. Now I know what you are thinking, "Jeep! Toyota! Land Rover!", but we cannot use those logos due to copyright issues, unfortunately.
I'd also love to hear your thoughts!

And oh by the way if I'm a candidate for this new project add me to the list.This is a great idea. Question? What about volunteers working with their local SAR “search and rescue” being on the list? I’m asking because that is something I’ve been doing for 3 years. Working with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office Search & Rescue team. The training and commitment is a big deal. To be on the ready to respond to a call-out and to have all the gear, skills and knowledge to safely preform while rescuing a subject. Most are medical certified as EMR, Advanced medical, wilderness medical certified. Understand tracking, orienteering, repealing, ATV, Boat, and Helo trained. No one is paid this is all volunteer and if you find yourself in a situation where you need a qualified SAR team to come find your or someone you know you’ll be glad they showed up. Your thoughts and thank you to all first responders paid or volunteering.
