My name is Jennifer Souza, but you can call me Jen. I am the creator of the original military uniform ornament ball.
My soldier and I’s first duty station was at Fort Drum, NY. “Climb to Glory!” While at Ft. Drum, I worked at the base alterations shop, where I was inspired to re-purpose old Army Uniforms uniquely.
When the Army expired ACUs in 2014, I didn’t want to give my husband’s uniforms to secondhand stores or throw them away, so I created the military uniform ornament ball. After a year of private sales, the ornaments became my full-time focus, and I opened a shop.
After 22 years of service, it was time for Sergeant First Class Souza to retire! This remarkable man was a soldier his entire adult life, and we were excited to start a new chapter, bringing us back to our home state of Maine with my two daughters.
Mr. Souza is now a welder, and I continue to create and provide exceptional customer service at Freedom Balls.
