pattern, and embroidery.

 

 

Help the Texas Gulf Coast Parents Club raise money for our sponsorship of the Joint Service Academy Military Ball by indicating you’re an “ACADEMY PARENT” in the “SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO SELLER” field on the order page. Whether you are celebrating I-Day, a football game, or need a special sponsor parent gift you pick your choice of colors and embroidery. Tell your friends at the other academies and any schools (you don’t have to be an Academy parent, but please use these words so that we get a portion of the sales price) to order one too! Place your order by early to get it before the game!
