BLACKHAWK! Announces Hall of Honor Program to Pay Tribute to Military Heroes

Overland Park, Kansas –  BLACKHAWK!, a leader in tactical gear, is proud to announce the BLACKHAWK! Hall of Honor program, designed to showcase American military heroes.

BLACKHAWK!’s Hall of Honor is a way of acknowledging our service members who have displayed the highest degree of courage, honor and military service by being awarded the Medal of Honor. BLACKHAWK! is creating a video chronicle of episodes that will highlight those who can tell their story of how they received our nation’s highest military honor.

In recognition of their efforts, BLACKHAWK! will also donate $1,000 on behalf of each member toward the construction of the National Medal of Honor Museum in Charleston, South Carolina. This museum is dedicated to the over 3,000 recipients of the Medal of Honor since the award’s creation in 1861. You can learn more about the museum and its dedication to honoring veterans at
