It is a great honor for us today to announce the 5th anniversary of the Tactical Beard Owners Club – founded on 24th of August 2011. What started with just one thought has become a solid institution in the tactical scene.
In the last 5 years so much happened that we will only mention the most significant here: We have become a real vivid social club with a constitution, staff organization and multiple internet platforms. Our logo has become a destinctive mark for the tactical beard owner and we are well known now. We processed 5000+ member applications to hand pick only 1600 of them (so far) to become our brothers. The fluctuation is at a minimum, most original members are still here since the beginning, which shows what a loyal group we are. We have built 40 chapters (so far) all over the world to be bastions for beards to gather members who become brothers. We awarded honorary memberships and made contact with outstanding personalities to promote the tactical beard.
We at Tactical Beard Owners Club wish to express our sincere appreciation to our loyal supporters and fans as we celebrate our 5th year in existence. When we founded in 2011 with merely a handful members, we could hardly foresee our growth to an international institution with staff and 1600+ members. We could not have come this far without the loyality and dedication of our members that we call brothers.
Our joint network of tactical beard owners will continue to grow and in regard of what we want to achieve in the future it feels like we just started. We are excited to look forward to see what can be achieved in the next 5 years.
Let us remember those who are not here with us anymore. We keep up the memory of our deceased brothers. They will never be forgotten.

It is our great pleasure to announce HRH Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales KCVO (Prince Harry) has received his TBOC patch and honoured the club by accepting our "Letter of Appreciation".TBOC will list Prince Harry under the category “Appreciation of an Extraordinary Personality”, given his exceptional work in raising awareness and support for military members suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, for his commitment to the INVICTUS games, for raising awareness and support for conservation, including anti-poaching initiatives, and for exceptional service in Afghanistan with the British Army. While this is not an Honorary Member position, it shows that Prince Harry mirrors our own thoughts, actions and sentiments, therefore we can only conclude that he is an extraordinary person and a good fit to the values and beliefs of TBOC.https://invictusgamesfoundation.org
Tactical Beard Owners Club is proud to announce the launch of its own unique members-only discussion forum. It is called "Stronghold" and is a bearded bastion for all members that want to communicate with the help of state-of-the art technology with features beyond those of the common social platforms like Facebook, Google and Co.
TACTICAL BEARD OWNERS CLUB wishes you a calm, safe and happy holiday season! Especially to those who are deployed downrange. We’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all of our fans and friends for their support!
The members of Tactical Beard Owners Club wish you a HAPPY WORLD BEARD DAY 2015! In this video message you see members from 25+ locations from all over the world. We celebrate the beard every year.
This year we also celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the band called "The Beards" who are Honorary Members of TBOC.
After attending to the memorial service of our brother Michael, we were informed that another brother died in an accident. This is the fourth tragic loss in 2015.
We are sad, we are angry, but we are hopeful for them. We mourn but we take care of each other and those who were left behind, to cope with the loss.
Our memories build a special bridge when brothers have to part. They span the years we shared with them, preserving the ties that bind a brotherhood of men.
We know they rest in peace at high grounds and we'll meet them again when our time has come. Till then we will remember their deeds, their life, their stories.
We share a special bond that we believe to last eternal, that only brothers can share. No one is alone. In life and death we stand together strong.
Tactical Beard Owners Club has changed its policies in regard of new members wearing club insignia.
Since TBOC's focus is on the members and them socializing, merchandise and the especially the much sought after and often copied patches are a no go for new members from now on. This policy is contrary to the "hype" the patches have triggered. We do want quality membership, not patch sales.
TBOC has changed their Constitution as you can read here in the following paragraph:
[…] In order to ensure only sincere and committed members represent the club by displaying TBOC insignia, members will be unable to purchase TBOC badges, gear and other merchandise from the TBOC Supply shop for a "trial period" of six months from the date of their approval and acceptance into the club. […]
Members are not allowed to wear or display any TBOC badges, gear and other merchandise during their trial period with the club. This of course is true for potential applicants also. Applicants that wear illegitimate (fake) or black market genuine TBOC patches will disqualify themselves right from the beginning.
Don't make a huge mistake wearing fake patches. Unless you are not smart enough to realize that to adorn oneself with borrowed plumes is stealing the valor from those who earned the patch beside the fact that the patches are illegal and copyright violation is a crime.
Make sure you read the entire TBOC Constitution before you apply for TBOC membership.
This new policy is active since 09MAY2015 and ALL APPLICATIONS that were sent in after that date will fall under the above ruling.
TACTICAL BEARD OWNERS CLUB wishes you a calm, safe and Happy Holiday Season! We’d like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all of our supporters, fans and friends for an amazing successful year – we appreciate your continued support.
