Junior’s Bullet Pen Company is dedicated to fallen heroes like SSG Chris Falkel. 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 was called “Junior” by his teammates. From the time he was a very young boy, Chris knew he wanted to be in Special Forces, and he would make “weapons” out of whatever was available to him. He used to love to turn shell cartridges into all kinds of things. Now Chris’ father makes these Bullet Pens to honor his son and support military outreach programs.
