Why the name Patriot?
Updated: Jul 28
Many people have asked my how did you come by the name Patriot Dumpster. Well, I am prior military with 14 years between active duty and reserves, then I became a private military contractor for another ten years working in Iraq and Afghanistan. I met many patriotic Americans working there, one, in particular who loved working with the troops and would help anyone, anyway he could. His name was Scott Dubis, and he was killed in Syria March 23, 2023 and he was one of my best friends. He was the epitome of the patriot, a regular guy who worked hard, had a heart of gold and who loved this country. I chose the name Patriot Dumpster well before Scott was killed but choosing the name to me was a way to honor Americans who I worked or served with all over the world. Every day, Americans around the world place themselves at risk to help keep America safe and I believe they should be honored for what they do. So, our name and logo are a small way for me to represent my thankfulness for Americans who are out there serving for us. So, now when you see Patriot Dumpster around town you know what it represents. If you would like to know more about my friend Scott, his story is on the GoFundMe page we set up to assist his wife. Please take a moment to read about him, even if you cannot donate because he was an exceptionally good man.
