As part of their give back program, they have donated over $25k to charities and sent over 18,945 bags of donated coffee to deployed troops. Carl is a Distinguished Military Graduate from the University of Utah Army ROTC program and served 21 years in the US Army with Special Operations Command, 1st Armored Division, 3rd Infantry Division, and 9th Infantry Division including multiple combat deployments where he earned the Bronze Star.
