Paul, our Maketing Brand Strategist, served in the United States Army from 2002 - 2009. This special edition features elements specific to his service. The Brave Rifles Special Edition features either a stonewashed gunmetal grey, silver section, and fine polished nib OR stonewashed olive green, black section, and fine black nib INK fountain pen. It has been laser etched with a vintage US Army "star in a broken circle" and the unit designator: HWB 1/3 ACR which stands for Howitzer Battery, 1st Squadron, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment. Paul's service is somewhat unique in that he spent all seven years of active service in HWB 1/3 ACR, something that rarely happens in the Active Army. The pen ships with a custom made black Cordura case made by AuxGear. The pouch is set up to carry multiple pens, a passport sized notebook (or a phone), and a pocket knife or other similar sized objects. The front of the case features loop velcro for attachment of patches. The provided patch is the Army Combat Uniform patch for the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment. The back of the pouch features belt loops and lanyard hooks for multiple ways to carry the pouch. This special edition is limited to 15 gunmetal grey INK sets and 20 olive green INK sets. The set will have a MSRP of $140 dollars, $20 from each SE will be donated to the Disabled American Veterans Charitable Service Trust , which supports physical and psychological rehabilitation programs that provide direct service to ill, injured, or wounded veterans.
