7.62 Junior's Brass Bullet Pens
SSG Chris Falkel was a warrior, he was a hero, and he is my son. Chris was a weapons sergeant for 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) on Operational Detachment Alpha (ODA) 316, and between 7 – 9 August, 2005, Chris and his Special Forces team were involved in a 54 hour battle “that will live in the annals of Special Forces history.” On the evening of 8 August 2005, Chris paid the ultimate sacrifice and died saving the lives of his team and 16 members of the Afghan National Army that were assigned to his beloved ODA 316. SSG Chris Falkel was awarded the Silver Star for his bravery and heroism.
Chris once shared the idea he wanted to make a 7.62 bullet pen with his father, Jeff. Jeff made his son's vision come to life and today honors Chris through Junior’s Bullet Pen Company. It is Veteran owned, and strives to employ veterans and their families to help assemble these unique writing instruments – many of whom are the amazing members of Chris’ Special Forces family.
