Congrats to Connie! 24 hour Tour d'spirit 136 miles!

If you haven't met Connie, and you will, she is a force unlike any other.  She is demure but becomes ferocious in battle.  A force of nature, untamed by landscape or man.  An iron will dominated by a poetic beauty.  A passion seen in her eyes and echoed in her soul.  A physical and mental toughness that is unbreakable.  This little lady is on a journey of miles. 

Connie doesn't train like the masses.  She is capable beyond comprehension.  A notice is too early of an indicator for her…

Wilderness Medic class 511

Congratulations to the class of 511.  Many miles, blisters, exposures, rampant snakes (anacondas), ticks, more weight, goofy smiles and greater laughs lead to a very rich experience in the Ozarks.  The exceptional exertion, high intellect, team consensus and fantastic morale made class 511 stand out as a cut above the rest!  Outstanding job and looking forward to seeing you soon!

What do you think?

A line is drawn in the sand

Waiting for the executive, the outcome to unravel

For a decision made in the backwaters, where the night is pitched

And the jungle’s canopy, three layers thick

The din shakes the core, as the masses screams

The legions are many

Shaping the west phalanx

Covered in a glistening armor, the group holds their ground

The dynamic general imposes and the wings let fly

Girls, the 4, Speak

Who has the…

Congratulations Class 1010

Congratulations to Class 1010! Once again, we rolled into A town and migrated to little A town. The class went through it's pace and found a host of craziness waiting for them. Drug CZARS, drug lords, girls, girls, girls, yakuza, real blood, weird feet, water, line dancing, airplanes and other assorted goodies. With that said, how can you not come to class. The cadre does things no other tactical medic classes dares and drags the students along with them. What a fun ride! With that said,… Continue
