Product Description

Operation Hawkeye PVC Patch with Velcro back

All proceeds (Every last penny - Patriot Surplus is donating the whole thing including our cost) from the purchase of this patch go to support the families of the 31 service members lost on August 6, 2011 in Operation Enduring Freedom when their CH-47 Chinook helicopter was shot down.


We plan on presenting each family with a framed display of all 31 named patches and the Operation Hawkeye patch in honor of their loved one who perished while defending our country. The patches with the names of the Service members are not for sale.

On August 6, 2011, 31 United States service members (30 men and one highly trained dog) died tragically in Wardak province, Afghanistan supporting Operation Enduring Freedom when their CH-47 Chinook helicopter was shot down. It was the single largest loss of life American Special Forces in a single day. One 12-year-old boy from Virginia was inspired to make a difference. Will Thomas started the project to raise money for the families of the victims of the crash. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the families. Mission Possible: Thomas decided to use basketball as his outlet for the charitable cause. He asked donors to pledge money for every basket he made over Labor Day weekend in 2011. Before he knew it, the 12-year-old had made 20,000+ shots and raised $50,000. Rise and Fire: In 2012, Thomas’s challenge was to shoot 3-pointers for consecutive days until his count made reached 2,600 (18% of all the 3-pointers made in the NBA the previous season – The number 18 was chosen for the 17 Navy Seals who lost their lives on 8.6.11 plus one for the entire team acting as one unit). Thomas far surpassed his goal by making 3,317 3-point shots. The 2013 Rise and Fire Challenge is set to kick off on August 31, 2013. The Goal: Raise $310,000, $10,000 for each victim’s family. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the families. All funds are applied to actions that honor the fallen or address their families’ needs.
