Essex Junction, VT, USA ( -– Revision Military, a world leader in protective soldier solutions, donates $50,000 to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) through the Revision & Dan Packard Spec Ops Family Fund. The fund operates under the SOWF, bringing the families of severely wounded special operators to the bedsides of their loved ones. The Dan Packard Spec Ops Family Fund was created by Revision as a departure gift to honor Mr. Packard’s immeasurable contributions as both a former Special Operator and senior executive at the company. Dan leaves Revision after 8 years of dedicated service in the position of Vice President, U.S. Sales.

“Dan is one of the most generous persons I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, both professionally and personally. His giving is truly selfless, drumming up support—time, monetary and otherwise—for those in need,” Explains Jonathan Blanshay, CEO of Revision. “Particularly close to Dan’s heart is the Spec Ops community, with whom he served before joining Revision. As a thank you for all that Dan accomplished during his tenure with the company, we wanted to ‘pay it forward’ with a donation to one of his favorite charities—the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.”

Packard leaves Revision to spend less time on the road and more time with his family in Illinois. Taking over as Vice President, Global Sales, is Alex Hooper who has been overseeing the company’s international sales growth since 2004. Prior to joining Revision, Alex held key sales roles at Lockheed Martin, Defense News and Space News, and CamelBak.

The Revision & Dan Packard Spec Ops Family Fund provides support for wounded special operators and their families by granting immediate financial assistance to spec ops personnel severely wounded in the global war on terror. Managed by the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF), once notified of a special operator hospitalized with a severe injury, the SOWF immediately sends a $3,000 grant to the service member so their family and loved ones can travel to be at their bedside.

The Dan Packard Spec Ops Family Fund was created by Revision to honor Dan’s immeasurable contributions as both a former Special Operator and as a senior executive at Revision Military. In the position of Vice President, U.S. Sales, Dan was responsible for overseeing the company’s military and retail sales, and leading the company’s U.S. Army Customer Support Team.
