Special Thanks to, and see At the request of a Brave American soildier - in  Usual Suspect Forums.

We still need some more donations, and frankly the program has me about tapped out. So, if no further donations are
received very soon I will be forced to week the program and send less knives.
I have charged no administration costs here, and myself and Capt. Humphrey have spent many, many hours in advertising the program.
I also sent out Super sheaths to the dona tors and this is on top of the time required to make these knives and the supplies. There is absolutely no profit involved in this endeavor,
The men of the 10th Mtn. Div.
stand ready to make the ultimate sacrifice for the USA.
And both I and Capt. Humphrey have not only done the work, but risked
tweaking both professionally and financially in posting highly politically charged  statements on forums in an effort to GET the JOB done for these men.



Military Award Program
Show your appreciation

MAY 1st 2006 This program MAP II is now closed.....Wonderful  people  donated  and I donated the rest. The knives were completed, and sent to Iraq. Check the newsletter page for details.
Watch this page for the next program. Special Thanks to Capt. Ian Humphrey U.S. Army  for work on this program above and beyond what might be expected from anyone.
God Bless Our Troops and The  U.S.A.

I have again committed myself  to

a SUPPORT OUR TROOPS program, and need YOUR help..
This program is at the request of a
BRAVE and DEDICATED American soldier  who asked for help from the public,  numerous knife makers and companies, unselfishly, to award some of his men for their performance on the battlefield in Iraq.
We participated in the program last year, and were able through the good will of several  GREAT AMERICANS  award 6 knives to his men.
The total effort produced 100 knives total.
CSM Carlson  returned home from Iraq, and
was looking forward to lots of hunting and fishing on his off hours, also looking forward to watching his son, following in his footsteps and good example as a New member of the U.S. Army.
Well,, Brian was sent back to Iraq for yet another tour of Combat duty.  I realize the ramifications for Brian, but  I'm proud to  know this man, and proud to know that Carlson, his son,  and people like him  are protecting us. I must also mention Capt. Ian Humphrey, who has  served in Iraq, and  has volunteered his time and effort to help his fellow soldiers .
             These men are the Heros of Our time,
                              Join them.   NOW!

CSM Carlson letter.

I am Command Sergeant Major Brian Carlson, of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. I am currently serving on my second tour in Iraq in less than 3 years. I was with the 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry in Iraq from 03-04.
During that tour many great knife makers donated knives to my unit to recognize Soldiers who served meritoriously and in many cases valorously. When the donations ended, I was able to reward over 100 Soldiers with an outstanding quality knife; a tool that we depend on for day-to-day work and one we carry for self defense, if needed. Each soldier was told who made the knife and this was conducted in a public gathering so both the Soldier and the maker could be properly recognized.
One of the biggest supporters was Dan Certo from Relentless Knives. His donations went beyond this recognition ceremony and followed us back to Fort Drum, NY where I received four additional knives that were used to reward Soldiers and leaders for accomplishments while back home. Not only are his knives excellent quality, they also are made to meet military demands. Through  web site donations from interested parties he used the proceeds to make these Soldiers their knives.
I can not describe the thrill and pride each Soldier exhibited when they received their donation. It only solidified their commitment to serve this great country. I thank all who have contributed and who contributes in the future. You have no idea how much this means to our soldiers. Thank you all!!!!

CSM Brian Carlson

So,......PLEASE HELP, and keep in mind, our   sacrifice  in this matter, will directly result in an American Soldier , who has proved his merit and commitment, receive an award  of appreciation directly from us, the American people.. Success large or small followed by honest hardy recognition for the same, simply leads to more success.
So...."Let's Roll"! and Thanks!

Dan Certo

The are no administration costs, and  all funds collected will be dispersed as outlined here.
We welcome any interested party to audit the giving. Should we collect more than the above, more soldiers will get knives. 
A NEW design  will be created for this effort and named MAP knife

The First of these knives will be auctioned on ebay
with no reserve and  the proceeds will be added to the fund

You can follow our progress in the RELENTLESS KNIVES Newsletter on this site.

Here is a quote from President Bush which I firmly believe.

"As our troops fight a ruthless enemy determined to destroy our way of life, they deserve to know that their elected leaders who voted to send them to war continue to stand behind them. Our troops deserve to know that this support will remain firm when the going gets tough. And our troops deserve to know that whatever our differences in Washington, our will is strong, our nation is united, and we will settle for nothing less than victory.”

This program and many like it put those words into practice.
Futher and exerpt  from Hthe 2006 State of the Union address:
"Our men and women in uniform are making sacrifices – and showing a sense of duty stronger than all fear. They know what it's like to fight house to house in a maze of streets, to wear heavy gear in the desert heat, to see a comrade killed by a roadside bomb. And those who know the costs also know the stakes. Marine Staff Sergeant Dan Clay was killed last month fighting in Fallujah. He left behind a letter to his family, but his words could just as well be addressed to every American. Here is what Dan wrote: "I know what honor is. ... It has been an honor to protect and serve all of you. I faced death with the secure knowledge that you would not have to.... Never falter! Don't hesitate to honor and support those of us who have the honor of protecting that which is worth protecting."


 If you cannot afford to give personally, you might simply volunteer to help by taking up a collection at you work, school,church, etc.

Here is a bit of inspiration from an unknown writer which is so true.

      "Providence Will Move with You"
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness, concerning all acts of initiative and (creation). There is one elementary
truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that  the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.
All sorts of things  occur to help one, that would never have otherwise occurred. A whole stream of events, issues from the decisions, raising in ones favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance that no man would have dreamed , would have gone his way.  What ever you can do, or dream you can do, Begin it! Boldness has genius,power and magic in it. Begin it  Now!

Thanks Again
Dan Certo
