Keeping Santa Clarita “Squared Away” with Commando Military Surplus

by | May 22, 2021 | Old Town Newhall

In the military, you learn the term for being “squared away” and you learn it quick. It means you are everything in your possession is in working and pristine order and you are well versed in your job so that when you are called to serve, your command can count on you to be prepared and efficient. Commando Military Surplus has a long-standing history with Santa Clarita, established around 1980 specializing in selling military apparel and camping gear as well as provide excellent customer service to our veterans and community so they can always be “squared away”.
“We do greatly appreciate our clientele’s loyalty,” says owner and veteran Joe Gomez.
Providing quality Military surplus, tactical gear, and emergency preparedness supplies to Santa Clarita, Commando Military Surplus.
Is also a proud supporter of the U.S. Combat Wounded Veteran with Nine Line Apparel. According to the website, “In the military, a Nine Line is a medevac request for a soldier that is injured on the battlefield. To soldiers, a Nine Line symbolizes patriotism, hope, and trust in one’s countrymen.” It’s an important part of Joe’s mission owning the shop to support Veterans, em-ploy Veterans and promote brands that share in his same message of patriotism.
“Joe really helped me out when I was in a bind. The Colonel who runs the ROTC program decides to make a uniform change with less than three months left in the year, thanks buddy sure I don’t mind buying ANOTHER set of boots for my daughter in ROTC. With only days left before an event Joe made a special order and had them shipped next day air via Fed Ex. These boots were very specific and no other stores in the valley or LA carried them. Joe carried them and he came thru like a champ. Customer service at its best. I will be returning to purchase some of the Nine Line clothing line too. Very happy with my experience here.” Dean P.
