MAKING A NIGHT STALKER: A Special Operations Aviator Memoir

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

Now on Kickstarter, “MAKING A NIGHT STALKER: A Special Operations Aviator Memoir” is a memoir by Veteran David Burnett.

Rarely do we get a look inside the 160th, but I’m pleased to mention that the author has stood by his NDA and submitted his manuscript for DoD review.

• You ARE allowed to bid more than once throughout the day if you’d like, although we may or may not post outside the scheduled “end of day” updates.

BOSS StrongBox Raising Funds For Gold Star Teen Adventures

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

BOSS StrongBox will be hosting an fundraiser raffle online with a goal to raise over $5,000 for Gold Star Teen Adventures; a non-profit whose mission is to provide healing, mentor-ship, development, and opportunity to the children of Special Operations Service Members who lost their lives in the line of duty.

Gold Star Teen Adventures was started by Kent Solheim, a Special Operations Service Member who was seriously wounded in combat in Iraq in 2007, ultimately losing his right leg. Kent’s experiences on his road to recovery inspired the creation of Gold Star Teen Adventures. Kent, a father of two, realized that if he had not made it home, he would have still wanted his children to know the brotherhood of the Special Operations community that he had grown to love, and to share the adventures that his career had permitted him to do.

BOSS StrongBox has teamed up with other leading brands to provide over 20 different prizes with a total retail value of over $5,000.  Ranging from Pelican Cases to Streamlight TLR, Blac-Rac Weapon Retention Systems, Gerber Multi-Tools and more, there will be plenty of great prizes to win.

With raffle tickets selling for only $10 each, it won’t cost you much for a chance to win.

At the end of the day, it’s all about the cause and doing what we can to help support programs like Gold Star Teen Adventures and give back to the families who have served our country and ultimately gave their lives for our freedom.

The fundraiser starts June 1st and will run through the month, ending June 29th.  You’ll want to follow along on Instagram (@BossStrongBox) to get updates and watch the live raffle take place at the end of the month (note: you won’t have to watch live to win, if you’re name is pulled we’ll contact you).
