PROJECT BLUE LION IS FREE FIREARMS TRAINING FOR ACTIVE-DUTY LAW ENFORCEMENT. THE PROJECT WAS FOUNDED BY Howitzer Clothing in partnership with Wishes for Warriors, a veteran run, volunteer operated non-profit 501(C)(3).
HOWITZER DONATES PROCEEDS TO FUND HIGH LEVEL TRAINING AND EDUCATION TO THE LEO COMMUNITY VIA ITS PRO-STAFF OF FIREARMS INSTRUCTORS. The project directly supports these heroes with free training in order to better protect themselves and our communities.
My name is Mitch Van Jacobs and I recently attended Donovan’s 4th annual LEO appreciation class. I wanted to thank you for all of the merchandise you provided for us and thank you for supporting law enforcement in general. Donovan’s class was awesome and I learned a ton of stuff that I can bring back to my department. It is always humbling seeing high performance shooting in person and I feel incredibly grateful I was able to attend.
I want to say thank you to Ricky (The Janitor), Eric, Jared, Bryan, and Donovan for the Law Enforcement Appreciation class you all put together this past weekend. It was above and beyond my expectations. I truly appreciate everything you guys did. The class was AWESOME and I had an amazing time.
You guys are awesome!
I WANTED TO PERSONALLY THANK YOU FOR YOUR GREAT SUPPORT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT! EVERYTHING YOU DID TO HELP SUPPORT THE CAUSE WAS AWESOME AND THE SHIRTS ROCKED! I AM HONORED TO HAVE BEEN CHOSEN FOR THE CLASS AND IT'S GREAT TO SEE THOSE WHO SUPPORT US. IF THERE IS ANYTHING I CAN EVER DO FOR YOU IN THE MICHIGAN AREA, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
I wanted to personally thank you for your sponsorship and involvement in the Point 1 Tactics 4th Annual LEO Appreciation course taught by Donovan. I was blown away by the course, not to mention the gear your company provided to us. I am humbled by your support and am very grateful for your willingness to take care of us while taking the course.
Thank you isn’t enough, but I cannot express my appreciation in any other way. I will certainly be a customer of Howitzer Clothing going forward.
My name is Mason Wortham. I am a firearms instructor at a small Sheriff's Office in Weakley County, TN. I was able to attend Donovan's LEO class this weekend and wanted to thank you for your sponsorship of the event. Love the hat and shirt you provided for us. Thanks so much for supporting the event and supporting law enforcement in general.
I want to thank you for your support and generous donation this past weekend. Also a huge thanks for the continued law enforcement, first responder and military support. None of us do this job for recognition or praise but we really appreciate it when our brothers and sisters in arms are taken care of.
I wanted to express my gratitude for your support of law enforcement and the people they are sworn to protect. I took my first class with a professional trainer, outside of department provided training, thanks to Project Blue Lion.
I chose to attend a two day vehicle tactics course from Achilles Heel Tactical, with buddies from my department. Rick and his team are phenomenal and have my utmost respect. Needless to say my eyes were opened to an entirely different level of training, and I know I only scratched the surface. I will be attending as many classes as I can from AHT and other reputable trainers.
My name is Alex, I am currently a full time police officer in Ohio. I just had the honor of using the Project Blue Lion program for a 2 day vehicle tactics course hosted by Rick at Achilles heel tactical. I wanted to take the time to thank you, the training was phenomenal. Rick and his staff are amazing and I am grateful for the opportunity you have given me. Officers around the US you are providing this training for will definitely benefit. Thank you for your support especially this day in age. Thank you for your time.
I would like to thank you so much for everything you provided for Donovan's class this past weekend. I was blown away by your generosity in providing everything you and the other sponsors gave. Truly thankful for wonderful folks like y'all.
“I just wanted to take a minute and tell you and the Howitzer team how much I appreciate the Project Blue Lion and giving me the opportunity to take part in some fantastic training from Achilles Heel tactical and Dan Brokos this past weekend in NC. I’ve been in law enforcement since 2011 and it’s some of the best training I’ve had. I greatly appreciated the opportunity of being selected and sponsored to allow me to take part in the training. It was top notch & I hope to be able to do more training with them. Thanks for looking out for LEO and all you do."
“This past weekend I was fortunate to have the opportunity to participate in AHT's training as a member of the Project Blue Lion. I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity and for funding this project. I went to the police academy with Crawley and have been watching his company grow from the very beginning. I attended the pistol diagnostics training in Rittman and it was a great class. Crawley was very professional- I learned a lot, and I had a great time.
Again, very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the project and looking forward to my next training with AHT.”
“I’m officer Duke with the Gwinnett county police department. I want to personally thank you for the sponsorship that howitzer provided me. The value and information that Rick brings with his curriculum is by far the best training I’ve ever received with firearms. I believe all of law enforcement will benefit from this sponsorship as I know I have. Again, thank you for the sponsorship and I am forever grateful.”
“On behalf of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Southeast Division, I would like to thank you for your support and partnership with Project Blue Lion. I am one of the sponsored Police Officers who was able to take advantage of attending specialized training courses with Achilles Heel Tactical (AHT) hosted by Rick Crowley and as a result I learned a tremendous amount of valuable knowledge that I can now pass on to my fellow officers.”
“With Budget Restrictions and the current climate, this free training is a No-Brainer!”
“I took the gunfighter fitness class with Rick at AHT this last weekend. I just wanted to drop a line and tell you how much my partner and I appreciate what you’re doing for LE. The class was a blast, Rick is an amazing instructor and I’ll use the tools I learned in the class to take back to my agency. Thanks again for everything. Stay safe and go bless.”
“I had the privilege of attending an Achilles Hell Tactical class through Project Blue Lion. I wanted to say thank you for giving LEOs across the country access to high quality training. It’s refreshing and encouraging to see a company that cares about us. Thank you again.”
“I want to reach out and say thank you for your sponsor of the point 1 tactics leo appreciation class. a short time has passed but i wanted to remind you that your contribution is largely appreciated. i am very early in my career in law enforcement so will be utilizing everyting i learned for a very long time. thank you again for making it possible.
“Really great to see Organizations like Howitzer that truly support us.”
“Classes like this are second to none!”
“You are saving lives, saving Cops lives and keeping many communities safe.”
“Huge Opportunity to sharpen our skills and better prepare ourselves for the job we have.”
“Any skill set, any level. I 100% recommend it! Guaranteed that you will learn.”
“Howitzer provided training outside and above the Agency standards.”
“This training will make you an asset to your department!”
I wanted to thank you for you sponsorship of Project Blue Lion. As I'm sure you are aware, cops (especially those in the South) don't make much money. Getting a free class is a godsend for most of us, and we really appreciate and value those who look out for us.Donovan is a hell of an instructor. His ability to relay the whole process, especially the why, in such an understandable format makes learning from him easy. I learned a lot in his class, and he made it very fun. His demeanor is perfect for us in law enforcement, as our sense of humor is a bit different. Please continue to support him as an instructor. I will be recommending him to all my friends who are looking for a quality pistol instructor.Thanks again from all of us in the Low country of South Carolina for your support of law enforcement.
My name is Chandler Headen and I work for Charleston County Sheriff’s Office. I attended Donovan’s class this past weekend and I wanted to thank you for helping make it possible with project blue lion. It was an excellent class and I feel I am better prepared both as a shooter and as a firearms instructor. Donovan was awesome and I will certainly look for more classes from him. If you are ever down this way and need anything, please do not hesitate to reach out.
I wanted to reach out to thank you for your support and express my appreciation for Project Blue Lion. I was recently afforded the opportunity to train with Point 1 Tactics(Donovan Moore) at Live Fire Training Academy in Cottageville, SC. It was a great weekend of shooting and knowledge. I appreciate all you efforts and Donovan’s teachings. He is a wealth of knowledge and experience. I hope that you guys are able to continue your efforts to support law enforcement and military personnel. I hope you are reminded on a regular basis, of the good you are doing. Stay safe.
