Men in Kilts

The kilt originated as the traditional dress of men and boys in the Scottish Highlands of the 16th century.   The kilt is a knee-length garment with pleats at the rear.  It is most often made of woolen cloth in a tartan pattern.

Earliest know depiction of kilts –  about 1630.

Since the 19th century it has become associated with the wider culture of Scotland in general.  Although the kilt is most often worn on formal occasions and at Highland games and sports events, it has also been adapted as an item of fashionable informal male clothing in recent years, returning to its roots as an everyday garment.

Sergeant Noah Galloway was assigned to the 1st of the 502nd Infantry of the 101st Airborne Division out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky during Operation Iraqi Freedom.  Just three months in to his second tour of duty, Noah lost his left arm above the elbow and left leg above the knee in an Improvised Explosive Device attack.

After a long recovery, Noah did what many disabled veterans do.  He became withdrawn, out of shape and depressed.  Then late one night, Noah took a long look in the mirror, realized there was more to him than the injuries, and set a goal to get back in shape, be healthier and inspire others.

Now a personal trainer, Noah continues to compete, participating in adventure races plus numerous 5K and 10K races.

Most recently, Noah is on the November cover of Men’s Health Magazine, having been named the publication’s 2014 Ultimate Guy. He’s also been a guest on numerous national talk shows including Ellen and The Today Show.

Noah…Thanks for your Sacrifice.  Thanks for your Service.
