Together, they started Bottle Breacher, a successful company featured on Shark Tank. Bottle Breacher makes 100% of their products in the USA, while employing and giving back to veterans nationwide. But Eli’s most important mission to date has been raising his two daughters, Makenzie and Kennedy. He is proud to be raising his family in Arizona and is ready to fight for their future. As someone who has put his life on the line to protect and defend this country and our Constitution, Eli understands that the greatest threat to our freedoms is no longer external – it’s right here at home.
