Every patient that walks through Shofner Vision Center's doors has a story to tell. We turn our focus to a military Sniper, and also of of Dr. Shofner's LASIK patients, who told us about a unique way the father of Special Operation Warrior honors his son, who was killed in combat. 

SSG Chris Falkel sacrificed his life to protect others. He was awarded the Silver Star for his bravery.  Falkel will be remembered as a warrior, a son, a fighter, and the nickname, "Junior"that his teammates gave him. While serving he would create objects out of bullets. With his desire to create a pen out of a bullet, his father senior picked up his son's creative torch and now creates pens out of bullets in his son's honor.

Bullet PenThe pens are called Junior's Bullet Pens. A total of 25% of the proceeds from the sale of every Junior Bullet Pen will be donated to the Special Operation Warrior Foundation. Visit JuniorsBulletPens.com to learn more. The SOWF grants college scholarships to children of fallen special operations warriors.
