5.11 Tactical pays tribute to the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by donating proceeds from apparel sales that bear the logo shown on this patch.
To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, 5.11 Tactical announced it would donate proceeds of sales from a special tactical line of clothing to three funds paying tribute to those who serve.
The goal is to donate $250,000 to the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial Fund, and $250,000 to the FDNY Foundation for fire service and $250,000 for EMS operations.
"We are so grateful to the men and women who put their lives on the line for us on 9/11 and every day," according to Dan Costa, 5.11 Tactical's CEO. "This is one way for us to show public safety officers across the country that we will not forget their sacrifices."
The company is using a unique anniversary logo that honors the heroes of 9/11. The emblem features the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and flight number 93.
The logo will be embroidered on a special line of apparel created specifically for this project. To engage the public, 5.11 Tactical will donate 100 percent of the net profits from the sale of these apparel items to the three tribute funds.
Nine products — including shirts, bags, and packs — will carry the special 9/11 logo. The products will be available for special order starting March 1.
