Whether it’s a deployment ‘stache, a fundraiser opportunity, or a statement of a vet’s new-found freedom, mustaches have a long, storied, and sometimes goofy history in the military community. Recently, the mustache movement has picked up steam in the military particularly during November to support the efforts of Movember. In support of awareness of men’s health issues– in particular, testicular cancer and prostate cancer– participants grow mustaches and raise funds.

While it’s the end of Movember 2016, these mustaches are inspirational all year long:
