NBPP: The Intelligence Cycle Breakdown

We’re sitting at about 50/50 of NBPP exercise participants who “get it” and those who don’t.  The 50% of those who don’t “get it” is the result of a failure on my part.  Let’s talk about the Intelligence Cycle today. I want to reiterate that we’re in the Planning, Requirements, […]

Virginia Course – 2014

Virginia Course – 2014

Hey Folks – just a brief update.  I feel really bad for all Virginians today.  Virginia is my ancestral home and was once my physical home, and I really hate to see it go the way it did. In short, I’ll refer to Concerned American‘s important words: We’re hosed.  There’s […]

It seems like every time I go to one of the local gun stores, I see a customer wearing a sign of military affiliation or indication of prior service.  A Kilo 3/9 t-shirt or a KIA bracelet, for instance.  I printed off a few pages of links to WRSA, Mountain […]
