We are five brothers from a family of 10 children who know what it means to serve, protect, and defend our nation and freedoms. Our father retired from the United States Marine Corps, and we saw at a young age the selfless service and sacrifices that servicemembers make. We have continued to follow in those footsteps as we have grown and started our own families. In September of 2021, we decided to start up One Fire Fight Apparel Company to support and give back to Military, First Responders and Medical Professionals.

Our company is based out of Columbia, SC but are spread out over the country with brothers living in Texas, Connecticut, Michigan and Greenville, SC. We love any opportunity to share our story and describe how we give back and support the local community. One Fire Fight is a Veteran-owned and operated custom apparel company that supports and gives back to those who serve our country, families and communities. Our company went live on April 15, 2022 with a focus on every single person who is out there “fighting,” but highlights the service that our Military, Police, Fire Fighters, EMS, and Medical Professionals provide to everyone. Our company is built on the pillars of integrity, quality, customer service and philanthropy.

One Fire Fight (1FF) is a company founded on faith, family, and community. We are all in a “fight,” whether it be physical, emotional, or mental and 1FF is built to encourage and represent your personal “fight.”

Our team is comprised of five brothers with a wide array of backgrounds:

· Arthur Athens is an active-duty Army officer, serving over 16 years in numerous leadership positions managing multi-million dollar projects and leading troops during several combat tours overseas.

· Andrew Athens is currently a Deputy Sheriff in South Carolina and a head lacrosse coach of a world team. Andrew was an NCAA Division I lacrosse player and went on to be a collegiate associate head lacrosse coach.

· Jonathan Athens has spent the last seven years at a Fortune 500 company, a leader in the uniform and apparel industry. He has held numerous leadership positions across every department.

· Peter Athens is serving as a police officer in Texas and was a two-sport collegiate athlete at the Division 1 level.

· Stephen Athens has spent six years serving as an active-duty Coast Guardsman with several counter-narcotics deployments in the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean. He also specializes in material fabrication, multimedia production, and personnel management.

As we startup and grow we provide the very best products to our customers and share our financial success with non-profit organizations that support Military, Police, Fire Fighters, EMS and Medical Professionals. We donate 5% of sales to the “Semper Fi, America’s Fund” that give back to those who are in the “fight” every day and support our communities and freedoms.

We do a majority of our sales online but also go to numerous live selling events in SC, NC, MI, TX and GA.
