THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE PROJECT:
Even before joining the U.S. Army, I loved military pinup girls; especially the sexy, strong bombshells painted on World War II planes and Armed Forces' recruiting posters. After four years of service and 15 months in Iraq, I left the United States Army. But the Army remained with me.
I soon noticed that the pin-up world was missing a very important part of American history: the modern U.S. Armed Forces. So I Googled for hours, trying to find a pinup artist that would be up to the task of drawing beautiful girls, depicting our modern military forces. I found world-renowned pinup artist Andrew Tarusov and instantly fell in love with his work. Andrew agreed to work with me on the project, and we spent months coordinating, making sure that the girls were an accurate, beautiful representation of our modern military. I provided the ideas, he provided the beautiful girls.
Eventually, USMILPIN (United States Military Pinups) was born; the internet's first and sexiest collection of modern U.S. Armed Forces pinup girls. With your help, we will print the first USMILPIN deck and make them available to service members, veterans, and other military and pinup enthusiasts worldwide.
- IF THIS CAMPAIGN REACHES $15,000, WE WILL UNLOCK A BRAND NEW DECK OF CARDS: USMILPIN'S VIETNAM-ERA VERSION OF NEW PIN-UPS GIRLS*
In the meantime, here are USMILPIN's Global War on Terrorism girls for you to enjoy!
THE GLOBAL WAR ON TERRORISM DECK:
Each suit of our waterproof playing cards, standard-sized poker cards, represent a different branch of the modern U.S. Armed Forces. Spades represents the Army, Diamonds represents the Marines, Hearts represents the Navy/Coast Guard, and Clubs represents the Air Force. Look at the details on these beauties!

Risks and challenges
This project reflects months of hard work from myself and the artist. I will make sure that the USMILPIN decks are produced and delivered in a timely and effective manner. The Make Playing Cards Company will be printing this beautiful deck on top-of-the-line cards. See MPC at https://www.makeplayingcards.com.
Unexpected delays can occur during the manufacturing of the decks. While there is always a chance that there will be a delay in fulfillment, I'm taking all of the steps I can to produce and distribute these cards as quickly and smoothly as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
