In 2013, Ken Beam and John Wayne met through Beam’s philanthropic efforts helping veterans with traumatic brain injuries (TBI). This friendship strengthened over the years as they continued to connect through various charitable ventures.
In 2017, JWW decided to sell his veteran-handcrafted firearm company, 5 Toes Custom, and during that process a business mentor suggested connecting with Ken Beam for his next endeavor.
John Wayne, a service-disabled, Hispanic veteran, formed Gallantry Global Logistics. A small logistics company, delivering military grade service powered by Pegasus Logistics, a $140 million company with an extensive network of partners and 2+ decades of proven success.
Gallantry Global Logistics is where industry expertise, custom technology, continual communication, and service excellence simply help you deliver.
The Meaning Behind Our Logo
The story behind the logo is all about John’s valor and our proud military history. The stars signify John’s receiving of both the bronze and silver star for combat.
The word Gallantry derives from the inscription on the back of the silver star “Gallantry in action”. The historic V-42 dagger is a profound symbol that reminds John every day of the blood, sweat and tears it took to be given the honor to serve in our special forces. That hard work and effort reminds him daily that he must take that same mindset to the service logistics industry. The three bolts evoke the unconventional nature the special forces/green berets have the ability to strike and infiltrate land, sea and air. It cascades brilliantly to the services behind Gallantry supporting air cargo, surface and ocean transportation.
