5.11 Tactical® wants the world to “Never Forget” the events of 9/11 and the people who put their life on the line to serve our country.

A 9/11 Memorial
5.11 Tactical, Inc proudly hosts the 9/11 Memorial. The 15-foot tall memorial in honor of the 10-year anniversary is a partnership with public safety departments across the nation and world. Constructed in the shape of the numbers 9-1-1, the memorial is covered in patches from public safety departments. 5.11 received an overwhelming response when they invited departments to participate in the tribute. Departments received a 9/11 Tribute Patch in return for sending in their department’s patch. http://www.511tactical.com/911PatchProject.html.
The 9/11 Tribute Patch and Anniversary Logo
9/11 First Responders met with 5.11 Tactical executives and designers and designed a 10th Anniversary 9/11 logo that contains distinguishable elements from the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Flight 93. For the past year, the logo has been featured on select products with 100% of the profits going to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and FDNY for Fire and EMS. http://www.511tactical.com/All-Products/911-Collection.html

On September 11, the company is hosting a free 9/11 Tribute Brunch at their headquarters for all local public safety officers and their immediate families. Mike Garcia, one of the first responders at the Pentagon and co- creator of the 10th anniversary logo will be in attendance. At noon, there will be a moment of silence and ceremony led by the local police department and area honor guards.
