Junior’s Bullet Pen Company is dedicated to one of our fallen heroes in the Global War on Terror -- SSG Chris Falkel. SSG Chris Falkel was a warrior, he was a hero, and he was my son. Chris was a weapons sergeant for 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) on Operational Detachment Alpha (ODA) 316, and late on the evening of 8 August, 2005, Chris and his team were involved in a 54 hour battle that “will live in the annuals of Special Forces history.” During the fifth of seven contacts during that battle, Chris paid the ultimate sacrifice and died saving the lives of his team. He was awarded the Silver Star for his bravery and heroism. He was only 22 years old when he was killed facing the enemy.
When Chris was 8 years old, he placed a Special Forces “long tab and arrowhead” on the wall above his bed, because even at that early age, he knew he was going to become a member of the United States Army Special Forces. On 22 May, 2003, Chris’ dream became a reality. Chris was an 18 Bravo – Weapons Sergeant, and he served two tours in Afghanistan. While he was the youngest member of his team, Chris was loved and respected for the professional, and the warrior he became.
Chris was called “Junior” by his teammates. Chris would make “weapons” out of what ever was available to him from the time he was a young boy, and he used to turn bullets into all kinds of things once he became a Special Forces weapons sergeant. Chris was always looking for a way to make a pen out a bullet, but never figured out how to accomplish that; so these pens are for you, my son.
Over thirty percent of all the proceeds from the sale of every Junior Bullet Pen will be donated to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) and the Green Beret Foundation. The SOWF provides college scholarships for the children of our fallen Special Operation warriors. For more information about the SOWF, please contact them at www.specialops.org. It is the least we can do for those heroes that have given their all for us. We have donated over $50,000 to the SOWF, but we want to give them so much more. The Green Beret Foundation takes care of Americas Quiet Professionals and their families – while they are downrange, and once they return home. Chris loved his Special Forces brothers and their families and his bullet pens will help us take care of them as well.
We would like to expand our company to provide bullet pens to the men and women who so bravely and courageously have volunteered to keep our country safe. We want to get them to all aspects of the military – from recruiters to re-enlistment coordinators to specific military units and commands. Another market is the military exchange for all services. We also would like to be able to provide bullet pens to our wounded warriors and veteran’s of all military service through the Veteran’s Administration hospital system. Law enforcement professionals and sportsmen may also prove to be good markets for our bullet pens. Now that we know we can get a supply .308 brass, we can produce enough pens to meet the need and demand that we feel our bullet pens will have.
Please feel free to contact us at any time to discuss Chris, his company, or any other aspect of Junior’s Bullet Pens at 720 – 234 – 3166, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much for your consideration and help for getting bullet pens to our country’s TRUE heroes.
