A Training Mindset: Our Mission

A Training Mindset: Our Mission

May 05, 2020 3 Comments

After an amazing weekend in Laurens, SC, at the SawMill Training Complex, we were able to spend a lot of time on the road reflecting on our mission. I've personally taught these types of courses for well over a decade, but not always in America. I have often been asked, even by my own peers in Special Operations, “why do you train civilians?” The answer is simple—if I don't, who will? Training indigenous people all over the world to protect themselves and their families against terrorism, tyranny, and dictators has been a foundation of my military career. Do we think we are immune from terrorism, from tyranny, from evil in the world? The benefit of a country that’s "of the people, by the people" is we control and establish the balance between us and them. The government and the people... especially a country controlled by heads of state, governors, and politicians that are just people. In setting that balance we train to be prepared, because conflict, especially conflict that happens in a short period of time, only last seconds. Whether that’s in the defense of your life from a lone wolf, or a deliberate attack on you, your family or community... When disasters happen in seconds, first responders are often minutes away.

The passion we have at FieldCraft is opening minds to how easy preparedness is. How easy, once in the fold, it is to think through stressful circumstance and disaster. How easy it is to equip and train, to be prepared for that worst-case scenario, and inadvertently being prepared for everything in between. Our passion is you. It’s what drives our purpose, keeps us motivated, and allows us to stay focused on our mission—providing the best training: adapting and always ready. I’m excited for our upcoming training, seeing new faces, and opening minds to the benefits of being prepared.

It was an eye opener on how the gen pop were misinformed in the aspects of safety, personal security of their family and others safety for a lack of training. A LTC course I witnessed and sat in the state of Texas was insufficient training and was the first time students have fired a weapon without proper real life scenario training in situational awareness, identifying threats and escalation of force. Bottom line those are not trained are a danger to themselves and others. If it’s a standard to qualify and re-certify in the most high trained force in the world it makes sense to share those real world experiences to safeguard our way of life and mitigate injuries or casualties for a lack knowledge. I support your mission.

Mike, thanks for what you do. Our country has always armed, trained and help citizens in other countries but winces at the thought of Americans being highly trained. I will be at the upcoming Laurens courses. Looking forward to learning more. NEVER STOP TRAINING #11b
