    MILITARY CHANNEL FEATURES ARMOR EXPRESS IN SEGMENT DEDICATED TO THE HISTORY OF BODY ARMOR


    Central Lake, MI, 2007 - CENTRAL LAKE, MI (For Immediate Release, January 19, 2007) - The Military Channel found it's way to this remote northern Michigan town to interview Richard C. Davis - inventor of modern concealable soft body armor. While here, they spent time touring the new Armor Express factory, with CEO Matt Davis.

    The producers for the Military Channel were particularly interested in learning about Armor Express' manufacturing processes, body armor technology, and testing. To date, Armor Express has developed and marketed over 20 life saving products.

    Viewers of this program titled, "Body Armor," can learn about the original body armor worn by the Roman Legions and follow the progression of the product as it makes a leap in the 1970's thanks to Richard Davis, then a pizza shop owner who was attacked on one of his deliveries. This single incident led him to invent what we know today as modern concealable soft body armor. To date, concealable body armor has been credited with saving the lives of over 3,000 men and women.

    Air times and dates for this fascinating program on the history of body armor are as follows:
