Hanes is an Army veteran who served his country and the Democratic county clerk in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, which is near Philadelphia.

A Chicago-area native and forward for the Edmonton Oilers, Mike Brown’s commitment to the sexually dynamic Mustached American lifestyle has continued the deep connectivity between sports excellence and facial hair.

Writer and social mainstay Brian Moylan lives his sexually dynamic Mustached American lifestyle beyond simply attaching good looking fur to his face – but by leading efforts to relaunch a sexual lifestyle website, as well as other dating websites that bring together Mustached Americans with the women who desire our breed.

When no one could find Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the most beloved boat owner in America could – because he has a mustache.

The annual animated finalist for 2013, The Mustached American Uncle Grandpa is purportedly the uncle and grandfather of everyone in the world -- which is rather possible for a person of Mustached American heritage.

When he’s not grooming his manly beard or trimming his copious neck, chest and back hair – woodworker and master craftsman Dave Stine can be found building his award-winning tables and wooden furniture from sustainably harvested trees on his family’s 1,000 acres of land near St. Louis. And when he’s not shaping wood into his designs, he’s typically helping his uncles bring in the harvest on the family farm, orchestrating his family’s annual “Sauerkraut Day” -- when the extended clan gets together to shred a massive 1,500 pounds of fresh green cabbage and turn it into the Stine family’s locally famous sauerkraut. He then spends his “free” time training young woodworkers as apprentices, or supporting his local 4-H and other educational and arts nonprofits by donating custom pieces of furniture to help those organizations raise funds.

Ronald Joseph Aaron "Ron" Burgundy is the greatest living anchorman who has never covered any actual news. Putting Walter Cronkite to shame, Mr. Burgundy has defined the role of the anchorman, a breed of human who makes everything he says compelling and classy, no matter how insignificant it actually is. His mustache is insured by Lloyds of London for $1 million; while each of his arms are insured for $5 million – the only policies of their ilk in the history of ilks.

The premiere news reporter in the U.S. and perhaps Guam, Brian Fantana has championed the sexually dynamic Mustached American lifestyle on television for many yeas. As suave and debonair as his mustache is thick and rich, Mr. Fantana has demonstrated a cocksure way – which 50 percent of the time works every time – with the lovely ladies.

And in addition, he also nicknamed his testicles: the left one is James Westfall and the right is Doctor Kenneth Noisewater.

A three-pitch Mustached American -- striking out batters for Class A Hagerstown Suns of the Washington National farm system by day, and wholly embodying the Sexually Dynamic Mustached American lifestyle by night -- Bryan Harper rose to national prominence by completely overshadowing younger brother Bryce's All-Star performance with his dangerously rugged mouth brow. At 22 years old, Bryan is leading the charge for the next generation of Mustached Americans, particularly those in minor league baseball who wish to look really, really good and throw balls really, really hard.
