About us

We are a Service Disabled Veteran and Paralyzed Veterans of America Owned and Operated Small Business.

Commemorating America

How we got here & why we're passionate about what we do.

The story starts with 2 veterans...

Choctaw Press is an American, minority, Service-Disabled, veteran-owned business that was formed by former U.S. soldiers, Jason Franklin (Founder) & Mike 'Mitch' Horne (Art & Creative Director) who felt it important to commemorate important events in America's history and her institutions.

We do this out of a love for our country and present a living history in the form of print-based publishing commemorating certain events that have made America who she is today. We work closely with a number of people and organizations to help make these memorable publications come to fruition.
