About Us

What began in 1982 as a part time job/hobby by a Navy veteran and Leyden, Illinois firefighter, has turned into a major military surplus business. Michael Bafundo had decided he wanted a small business to satisfy his entrepreneurial spirit while not performing his firefighting duties. He opened 1st Army Supply, an Army and Navy surplus store in Northlake, IL. Within two years, the surplus and military supply business was so successful that he enlisted a partner, Andrew "Doc" Miller to assist in managing the business. 1st Army Supply has grown into a 5000 square foot store with over 2000 items on display in its showroom. The company now services retail and wholesale accounts worldwide with clients ranging from the general public to Swat, DMAT and EMT groups throughout the world. 1st Army is a registered Department of Defense contractor serving many U.S. Military bases around the world and is open to the public.
