U.S. Olympic Committee
United States of America

Team U.S.A., for the opening ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, will be proudly wearing red, white and bluer.

But it is hardly American Made. Practically every item in the uniforms that the U.S. athletes will be wearing at the opening ceremony in London will carry an overseas label.

Here’s how much the uniforms cost:
Beret – $55
Tie – $125
Belt – $85
Shirt – $425
Blazer – $795
Trousers – $295
Shoes – $165

Beret – $55
Scarf – $58
Belt – $85
Shirt – $179
Skirt – $498
Blazer – $598

The committee said: “The U.S. Olympic team is privately funded and we’re grateful for the support of our sponsors. We’re proud of our partnership with Ralph Lauren, an iconic American company.”

We the people, request that when our treasured Athletes represent our nation, by doning the Red, White & Blue, it would be designed by Americans, produced by Americans, for Americans.

Patriotism should be be first priority for Team USA, irrespective of public or private funding.

We, the undersigned, call on the U.S. Olympic Committee to dress Team USA in clothes with the label "Made In USA".
