TUCSON, Ariz. – Bottle Breacher, a nationally recognized manufacturer of patriotic gear and .50-caliber bottle openers unveiled their latest creation to honor fallen service members.
The Arizona-based, veteran-owned company has released “The Never Forgotten Series”, a .50-caliber Bottle Breacher with an image of a fallen service member along with the unit they served with and is cased in a hand-crafted wooden gift box.
The series started with a request from a concerned mother who lost her son on the front lines. She was worried that as the years went on that her son and his memory would be forgotten.
“At Bottle Breacher, we collectively decided that would be unacceptable and so The Never Forgotten Series was born,” said Eli Crane, former Navy SEAL who served on SEAL Team 3. “Not only did we want their legacies and memories to be at the forefront of our thoughts, but we wanted to donate proceeds of these very special Bottle Breachers back to the charities supported by them.”
The Never Forgotten Series will donate 20 percent of proceeds back to the family’s charities. For the first Never Forgotten Bottle Breacher honoring Marc Lee, the sales will benefit America’s Mighty Warriors. The Bottle Breacher set for Pat Feeks will be benefiting the Phoenix Patriot Foundation.
The next Bottle Breacher scheduled for the series will be one honoring Chris Kyle from SEAL Team 3 and in the coming months Bottle Breacher is also scheduled to honor Danny Dietz, Troy Gilberts and Tom Retzer.
“I recently made some for Chuck Keatings’ family last week and they loved them. Some of the guys who were in his platoon and there when he was killed recieved some and are taking them back to platoon members still there fighting,” said Crane, who served with Kyle and Keating. “For The Never Forgotten Series, we work directly with the families and only produce the Bottle Breacher’s with their permission.”
The company, which was founded by Crane and his wife Jen, focuses heavily on employing veterans and working directly with many charities benefiting wounded veterans and their families.
