Yesterday we discussed our search for a new band of bearded Brothers. A select chosen few who will represent 'The Beard Struggle' in all it's glory, a they join 'The Beard Struggle Brand Vikings.'

Today I wanted to give you a little information in regards to the 'TBS' Brand Vikings ranking system, more specifically the titles you'll receive as you progress through you Viking journey with us. So without further ado let's break down the currently five ranks within our system.

Beard Struggle Thrall.

If you are one of the fortunate ones who become a member of the elite chosen few you'll begin your journey at the rank known as 'Thrall.' This title is granted to all new members of 'TBS' Brand Vikings and is probationary title in which the Thrall must meet basic requirements before being permitted the rights to progress further up in the Brand Vikings ranks.

The next title you'll progress to is a 'Beard Struggle Fri-hals', which grants the title beholder recognition as full fledged member of the 'TBS' Brand Vikings. In order to achieve this title you must show progression and loyalty to be titled a 'TBS' Fri--hal.

They continue to further develop their chosen skills as they move forward amongst the ranking system.

    Well I’ve had my beard for about 4 years, had a lot of people tell me to shave it off, look like a slob so on so forth, but I’ve held strong, kept it! Anyways, was in the military for a number of years, once I was out said to hell with razors! Haven’t looked back since and don’t plan on it.

    For the Alfather, for the Warriors that came before me. To Valhalla with my soul. Fear the beard and my fellow Vikings. Behold the power of the beard a Viking might,

    Grandson of a Sweden native. My grandfather told me stories as a kid that were passed down from his grandfather about their past Scandinavian ancestors. Stories of Vikings that have been with his family’s name for hundreds of years. Viking blood runs strong in my veins!
