The Platoon Blue Edition honors our Law Enforcement Professionals who "Serve and Protect". These dedicated men and women are an integral part of our communities. Our "Platoon" crest symbolizes an idea. It represents a tight knit group of like minded people, team work, unit cohesion, and in this Blue Edition, in service to uphold the law, and serve and protect the communities in which we live and work. This distinct sigil is comprised of the signature PDW base triangle/hexagon frame; the historical references to the spears used by hoplites in any phalanx, and arrows as supporting combat icons. The phalanx is a potent analogy for the unit cohesion, loyalty, and esprit de corp we hold ourselves to in the Platoon. A portion of the proceeds from this edition will support the C.O.P.S. Organization. Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. C.O.P.S. provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives. To learn more about or to give additional donations to C.O.P.S. please click on this link.
