Beards: Gas-Mask Obstruction, Camouflage, and Cultural Icon

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Nov. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The month of November draws to a close, and razor companies everywhere are breathing easier again as legions of men resume trimming their facial hair. If you spent the last month scratching the unfamiliar fur on your face, congratulations, you made it through No-shave November. The month-long tradition has roots in supporting worthy causes and raising awareness by growing a beard. For others, it's a way to justify not shaving for an entire month due to laziness. For others still, it's a test of manly prowess to see who among a group of friends can grow the biggest beard in a month.

If you spent the last month scratching the unfamiliar fur on your face, congratulations, you made it through No-shave November.

Often, regardless of motivation or reason, the beard gets trimmed or shaven off entirely at the end of the month.

At Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP)­, we recognize while the act of shaving relates to personal grooming and discipline, in some situations, the presence of a beard can mean the difference between life and death.
