Forever Firstie

We are Forever Firstie – a store geared toward Naval Academy grads, midshipmen, and their families. We’re based out of Mount Airy, MD, and owned and operated by Brian Dunn – USNA class of 2008, Megan Dunn – a Maryland Terrapin, and our two boys, Jack and Luke. While at the Academy, Brian was a member of 14th Company, the USNA Marathon Team, and commissioned as a submarine warfare officer where he completed his junior officer tour onboard USS NEVADA.

Forever Firstie is an e-commerce business first and foremost providing on-demand custom gear and apparel to support both key events (reunions, commissioning, etc.) as well as on-going requests from our customers.
