Veteran Support

Howell talking to Military personnel.

Howell Instruments was born of ingenuity and the drive to help our armed forces operate more safely and efficiently. After successfully flying multiple missions in WWII, John S. Howell returned home a war hero determined to make a difference in the lives of soldiers yet to serve our great nation.

Since then, Howell has forged a rich history of working closely with military personnel to design products that improve mission success. We have an inherent interest in fostering the continuing careers of our service men and women, and it’s our belief that veterans tend to have the experience, work ethic, and determination to see projects through to successful completion.
