Lots to see here! this literally is a "garage" full of things
like my self-defense page, my
Mayflower Heritage pages, and
my Go Navy! pages, I am also concentrating more on
alerting my community to
preparedness, and activities that are geared toward honoring
God, protecting liberty, and preserving the rich heritage and founding
principles of America. Articles of a shorter nature can be seen on
the cyber-tech blog, and
2A Blog. I will continue to post articles there related to emergency
preparedness, gun rights, and firearms training.
A summary of the latest articles on the blogs
can be seen here. Since it costs money to run all of my various
websites, I have started to list affiliate products throughout the site - you can see these
combined resources on the

The Values I Hold Precious: Preserving the principles
of our nation as a Godly nation, and as set forth in our founding
documents - The Declaration
of Independence and The U.S.
Constitution must be paramount in priority of our lives.
I believe in keeping God in our schools, and I believe in protecting the
lives of the un-born. Defending our great heritage in firearms (The
Second Amendment) and fostering the vast greatness that America
has to offer must be our life's endeavor. The picture of George
Washington on one knee, praying, is by far my favorite painting in the
world, as it captures those very ideas. It's a call to all of us
to remember who we are as a country, and do all that we can to help
our fellow Americans. Excellence and American exceptionalism
are part of our heritage. Self sufficiency and moral
responsibility are the very fiber that holds us together. Standing
up as a nation of armed citizens is what keeps us free. And as Dr.
Martin Luther King taught us: content of character is more important
than the color of one's skin. America is great because America is

A little about me: After spending a 20-year career in
the US Navy, and 6 years teaching full time, I'm now in the
cyber-security biz, and spend most of my time researching computer
security issues, investigating cyber-incidents, and being an all-around
computer geek. As an active member of the Northern Colorado
Information Systems Security Association (ISSA), I often give
presentations on relevant cyber-security issues. When
I'm not at work, I spend my time prepping, going to the shooting range,
writing blog articles, and
teaching CERT training courses.
I am an NRA Certified Firearms Instructor (Pistol, PPiTH, RTBAV), US Concealed Carry
Association Affiliate Instructor, and an NRA Certified Range Safety Officer.
I am a trained and qualified instructor and member of the Fort Collins Community
Emergency Response Team (CERT), graduate of the Larimer County Sheriff's
Office Citizen's Academy (and Alumni Association Member) and have
completed numerous courses in Incident Command Systems practices and
procedures. Emergency preparedness and finding ways to protect my community are a
big part of my life, and I am always looking for ways to encourage
community preparedness. I'm a Law Enforcement Certified
AR-15/M-16/M-4A1 Armorer through the
Gunsmithing Institute. If you would like to read more about my
personal and professional careers and experiences, please see

Help protect our Second Amendment! With all of the arbitrary
anti-Second-Amendment laws that are sure to spring up this coming
legislative season, we need organizations who will fight for us and help
protect our rights. Gun Owners of America and The Firearms Policy
Coalition are the only organizations that I have seen who are getting
out in front with aggressive action.
