Homeland Security Group International Delivers TC3V1 Medical Bags to US Army

Freedom Is Not Free Foundation Holds Successful Event Aiding Wounded Troops

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - September 20, 2007) - Colonel Jeffrey A. Powers, CEO of Homeland Security Group International (PINKSHEETS: HMSG), announced today that HMSG has completed the first shipment of Combat Casualty Care Bags to the US Army.

"The first shipment has been completed on time and has been receipted for by the Army. We see this as a significant event that has culminated two years of negotiation, design and coordination with the US Army and Defense Logistics Agency. Soon after its inclusion into our product line, the Army assigned a National Stock Number to this bag and named it as the standard bag to be carried by Army Medics. Until now, the Army has continued to deplete their supply of Vietnam era equipment by shipping medical supplies to its medics in the old green nylon tri-fold bag. We feel we have turned the corner and units have started ordering our new bag for their medics," commented Colonel Powers.

The company is hoping that the flood gates will open and all Army medical units will now be purchasing the TC3V1. HMSG has currently sold over 12,000 medical bags to the United States Armed Forces.

HMSG also announced that the company participated in a fund raising effort in Washington, DC last week on behalf of the Freedom Is Not Free foundation. HMSG arranged for and escorted FINF board members on a Capitol tour and guided tour of the Pentagon including a personal briefing by the office of The Commandant of the Marine Corps. On Monday night, FINF hosted a fund raising dinner for 35 wounded service members from Walter Reed and Bethesda hospitals with Brigidier General Joe Dunford (USMC) as the guest speaker. Local business leaders attended and donated money to this worthy cause. To learn more about Freedom Is Not Free please visit http://www.freedomisnotfree.com
