We are pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Jeff Falkel to our Board of Advisors. Falkel brings his insight and experience as a Gold Star parent and veteran to the Foundation, helping it to hone its mission to honor those who have served and sacrificed on behalf of our country. Falkel is founder and president of Junior’s Bullet Pens, which crafts pens from once-fired military brass bullets, in honor of his son, Army Staff Sgt. Chris Falkel, who was killed in the 54-hour battle of Mari Ghar in Afghanistan. To date, he has made more than 150,000 pens by hand, donating over $300,000 in donations, product and fund raising to various Special Operations foundations. Dr. Falkel wrote The Making of OUR Warrior, about Sergeant Falkel with his SFODA 316 teammates, and over 5000 copies of the book have been sold or donated to worthy organizations. Jeff is also Director of Gold Star Programs for both the Green Beret Foundation and the Task Force Dagger Foundation.  He was just recently nominated to the Board of Directors of the Dancing Angels Foundation.

The Honor Bell Foundation is honored to have Dr. Falkel serve on our advisory board, and is confident his insights as a Gold Star parent, businessperson, and veteran will help the Foundation succeed in serving our nation’s veteran community and their families.
