Hello all!!!

 

Came across ITS Tactical while surfing the web one day and am really into what there doing and the direction they are headed.  Everything I have seen on Youtube and read is outstanding.  Little bit about myself:

 

I Grew up in a small town in northern Minnesota.  Followed my father (USN Retired) and older brother's (Parachute Rigger) footsteps and joined the US Navy in 1984.  Attended basic training in San Diego, California in 1985.  Spent 12 years on active duty at various commands before becoming a Police Officer full time in California in 1997.  Remained in the Navy and spent 8 years in the US Navy Reserves at various commands before retiring in 2004 while still a Police Officer.  Was mobilized after 9/11 to the Middle East for a year. 

 

Currently a Police Officer in California where I have worked Patrol, SWAT and Metro. Not a desk guy. Been a LEO for 19 years now.   Married with 2 sons (14) and (10).  Love the outdoors and everything tactical/survival/self reliance related.  I am 48 years old have experience in various areas and look forward to contributing here.

 

If anyone has any questions feel free to ask me.  I will do my best to answer and if I don't know the answer I will find it and get back to you.  As for everyone here at ITS and this Forum who has served this Great Nation!!  I thank you personally for your dedicated service and to those who have sacrificed it all, you are with us!!!  Warriors Never Die!!!

Welcome to the ITS Forum. It sounds like you have a pretty awesome background and will fit in quite well here. 

 

A quick note on the names, and don't worry as this seems to get confused by everybody new here, but the members forum name appears in the gray bar above their post, "Salty Dog" is a title in reference to number of posts, similar to how yours is "Landluber." Those titles are really all quite pointless if you ask me, but that's just my opinion. 

 

Again, welcome and I look forward to your contributions.

Welcome aboard! And don't feel like an idiot. It's almost getting to the point that it'd be strange if someone didn't make that mistake in their first few posts! ;)

I second that.

Awesome thanks LongHaul and mangeface for the kind words/welcome.  LongHaul, I noticed your from Alaska.  If you ever need any custom hand made leather bushcraft gear get in contact with my buddy from Deepwoods Leather, Ryan Townsend. He is up in Alaska area and has a website, Deepwoodsleather.com.  He makes some great stuff if your into it.
