Welcome to the TNQ Online Store Blog! My name is Kristin and I've been a member of Team Never Quit since formed back in 2012. Back then we had an online store and a lot of ideas!
Why create an online store? As the buzz of the filming of Lone Survivor started to stir up we were getting more and more requests for signed books. We thought - why can't everyone have the opportunity to get a signed book without having to know someone who knows someone to get it? But we didn't want to just sell books, TNQ wasn't trying to be a book store. Marcus and Melanie Luttrell had ideas that would get us excited and the thought of having a shirt that simply said NEVER QUIT was the first idea to make it to print.
Why Never Quit? For as long as Marcus has been signing books for his supporters he's been signing his name under the same phrase, Never Quit. He writes that for a simple reason. The "Never Quit" attitude is why he's standing today and able to write a note in his book written about the worst week of his life. Now, if you've been to the Patriot Tour or attended a speech of his, you've heard him talk about laying down to die. In the mind of a trained warrior, that's quitting. But to muster the will to dig to a depth in your mind that pushes your body beyond known capacity...that's Never Quit.
Navy SEALs are held to a standard that most can't achieve. The high expectations are laid out in detail in the Navy SEAL Creed (Ethos). Naturally, we chose to highlight the paragraph referring to the Never Quit mentality on the back of our original shirt.
For the first time in over a year we are bringing back the original logo apparel! Everything we have left is available HERE, get it now while you still can! We will be reprinting some old favorites and bringing in new ones over the next few months.
