We Are Diminished: Pat Rogers Passes Away

By Bryan Black


I’m disheartened to be posting today that Pat Rogers, a true pioneer and industry icon has passed away. While I haven’t been able to track down anything more than this, to say we’re diminished is putting it lightly. I was working with Pat on an impending interview at ITS and I’m almost beyond words at today’s news. I had just spoken to him recently and everything seemed to be fine. He had the same salty air to him that he had when I met him during the first instructional course I took outside of the military back in 2009, just before founding ITS.


Pat wasn’t only known for his training company, EAG Tactical, but for his time as a Chief Warrant Officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, a Sergeant with the New York Police Department, a free fall photographer and one of the most respected and prolific writers around. He always considered himself a student first and could find humor in any situation, especially in awarding his beloved moose cock patch that will forever live in infamy.


Fair Winds and Following Seas, Pat. You are truly missed…
