SK Customs partners with Omar “Crispy” Avila to honor our nation’s heroes this Independence Day

SK Customs® is proud to commemorate Independence Day with Omar “Crispy” Avila to honor recipients of the Military Badge of Merit, the current Purple Heart Medal.

“As Independence Day approaches, we recognize the sacrifice and unwavering dedication of those who have served our great nation,” said Simon Khiabani, owner and founder of SK Customs. “Last year, we partnered with Purple Heart Homes, the Purple Heart Integration Project, and US Army veteran and content creator, Omar “Crispy” Avila. This association pays tribute to our veterans wounded in combat through the limited edition 240he Purple Heart Colt 1911 firearm, representing the spirit of freedom as we celebrate America’s independence.”

After being deployed to Iraq in 2007, Avila’s vehicle was struck by a 200lb IED, resulting in burns to up to 75% of his body and below-knee amputation of his right leg. Sergeant Avila retired from the US Army in 2010 after serving for nearly a decade and dedicated his life to serving other veterans and helping wounded warriors across the country.

As a Purple Heart recipient, Avila shows us what it means to commemorate wounded veterans through his Purple Heart Commemorative Colt video.

Through the SK Gives Back initiative, SK Customs donates a portion of the proceeds raised from the sale of this production to Purple Heart Homes and the Purple Heart Integration Project.
