Wounded Warrior Project and Victorinox Swiss Army partnered on a design contest that invited wounded service members to create two new Swiss Army Knife designs to be added into the collection. Fans from across the country voted chose Angie Peacock and Manny Colon’s designs as the two to be produced. Both Angie and Manny visited the North American Headquarters to see their designs come to life.
Inspiration Behind the Design―Angie describes her design by saying: “The sunset behind the helicopters stands for the hope that I felt in Baghdad that we would make it out safely, and would bring us comfort that we made it through another day when things were hardest. The flag represents those we lost as our lives stand as memorials to them. The uniform is what set us apart of having to be courageous every single day when on the battlefield. I chose courage because I feel as if that word has been stamped on my life. I had to endure horrible things in service but coming home was difficult too. Now that we are home, we have a different uniform but the courage continues as we heal.”
Victorinox Swiss Army is proudly supporting Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) and has developed an exclusive Swiss Army Knife Collection featuring eight co-branded knife designs. For every Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Swiss Army Knife sold Victorinox Swiss Army will donate 5% of the manufacturer’s suggested retail price directly to WWP, to fund unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
The mission of Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors.
