The Bravest. It takes a certain type of person to run into a burning building when everyone else is running out of it. We at The Black 6 Project proudly stand by our firefighters as many veterans stand in the ranks of fire departments across the country. No other calling beats the preservation of life.
In 2003, in Asamawah, Iraq, a fellow Marine gave c0-founder Joseph Zoleta a bracelet made of 550 cord (what the Marines call it). He was told to wear it in case they needed 550 cord during their patrols. He wore it even when Joseph left active duty. Years later he would see the craze of the accessory as teenagers created different types of bracelets and keychains. Joseph still believes his friend Jose was the creator of the paracord fashion craze.
