I am 48 years old, having spent 28 years in the US Army (Special Forces), retired now and I am a high school teacher and just trying to keep up my skills as much as possible as age creeps up on me.

Hey Guys! Im Nate Knudtson from Minnesota (USA) Im apart of an airsoft team here, I love to play airsoft, hang out with friends, and fish.

I work full time as a forklift operator, and am 20yrs old.

A little about myself...I have always been a huge fan of the military especial the Marine Corp, unfortunately I was never able to join, as I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes...So I have to be satisfied with the thought that "not everyone can become a Marine" LOL

Anyway, I also work weekends as a part time Photographer, shooting sports primarily as well as a few weddings on the side....So all my money goes into either camera equipment, or airsoft :)

Well, theres my lil intro...and hope to see you all on the forums!

~Nate

Finally decided to join this forum. At first I was intimated because it seems this forum is directed to mostly people in the military services or special forces, but just decided to join anyway, hahah. A long time martial artist, recently got into combatives, always had this warrior mentality and always had this philosophy that everyone is a warrior/soldier, doesn't matter if you're in the armed forces or not. I actually saw this link from the integrated close combat forum. So yeah just another civilian sheepdog.

Thanks for the welcoming. No worries about the intimidation hahaha. The "intimidation" I'm referring to are the military or special forces people in this forum. Not in a bad way but good way that I have respect for them. But so far I haven't seen any keyboard warriors so it's always a good thing hahah. I hope to learn and gain as much knowledge in this community. thanks

Harp, harp, harp. :mrgreen: Seriously, welcome to the forum, new members. This is a good place to discuss the truths, half-truths and outright lies that are floating around out there.

Howdy, my name is Martin. I have a pretty extensive CV that I keep pretty private for security reasons but I'm glad I found this site. I'll be finishing a book on this subject in a few weeks covering many of the topics covered here. I've seen many teams that rely too much on too little which limits their own capabilities. There's not many people willing to openly share their experience within this subject (fear?) and I have felt for a very long time that this subject matter has been neglected because of the lack of sharing; let's change that.
What I will share is this:
I've been involved with Building Entry Clearing Strategies & Tactics since 1994. I was trained by one of the top commanders in the nation (at least at the time! :lol: ) and involved with several operations inside the United States and US Territories. I now have a full time job doing other work but still train teams on a contract basis. I won't be able to be continually on here but will be back from time to time to check things out and look forward to reading other peoples experiences while sharing some of mine.

Hello, I'm retired military and have been a LEO since. With the positive attitude of when is something going to happen, not IF. I am constantly thinking and planning. It has been a while since I have made a live entry and that's a good thing, So, I found this site and would like to refresh and learn new tricks. My goal is to go home at the end of my shift and ensure my fellow LEO's do the same.
