Give Terror the Axe Foundation

Shawn Phillips, a friend from the Usual Suspect Network, is working in conjunction with Daniel Winkler to make sure that our soldiers have some amazing axes and tomahawks at their disposal. Shawn started the Give Terror the Axe Foundation to put these highly sought after axes in the hands of the US Navy’s Special Warfare community and the US Army’s Special Operations community. These are functional tools that are being put to good use in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sources say that Winkler axes were present in Somolia during the pirate boarding and in the recent action in Abbottabad.

Give Terror the Axe raises funds several ways. Donations of any size are accepted to the foundation’s paypal account (information below). You can also purchase items like patches or other really amazing items that are donated from time to time. Soon, the foundation will have their own custom patches available for purchase.

The funds are handled in a completely transparent way and as soon as there has been enough raised for an axe (about $350), the funds go straight to Daniel Winkler. All donations are published on the Usual Suspects Network so you can be sure that your donations are going to the right place.

Here is how you can get involved (it will be easier if you have an account with the Usual Suspects Network)…

Memorial Day

Today, Memorial Day, is the day that we honor those who have given their lives for this country in the course of military service. This is far more important than just a 3 day weekend. I encourage you to take a moment to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for this country.

LaRue Tactical Dillo Beverage Entry Tools have taken on a life of their own. It seems that everyone loves them. They have even become collector’s items.

Periodically, LaRue Tactical will use that popularity to support a good cause like Warrior Angels. The proceeds from these special edition pink Dillos will go toward supporting those in the military who are battling breast cancer. LaRue is donating the machining, anodizing, engraving, shipping… basically everything, so that all the proceeds goes directly to the Warrior Angels.
