Description:

The Pillar - This week's guests, Mr. Bill Jarvis with Ullerware.

Video @ https://youtu.be/QqqmclMED3w

 

About Ullerware:

Üllerware is born of the idea that Merino wool is the optimal material for next to skin garments and that by providing a durable blend our products will wear better and provide the comfort and performance you demand. We make products by and for the multi-sport athlete and feel your gear should hold up as well as you do.

Our products are engineered to perform for at least 3 days of demanding use under extreme conditions. To that end, our goal is to provide our customers with a product that fits and feels as good on day three in the field as day one. Our material and blending selection are guided by this belief, and we feel that we have achieved that goal.

How the sock fits the foot, how the sock fits inside the shoe, and how the shoe supports both the sock and the foot are what we call the foot, sock, shoe interface. When a product grips the foot without constricting it, and becomes an extension of the foot within the shoe, it permits a better functioning of the footwear and reduces the impact to the foot. This in return uses less energy, causes fewer injuries, and creates a better experience. Or at least it takes your mind off your feet, which in many cases is just as good. While we can’t pick your footwear, we can give you a better experience with your socks.

We take our design and manufacturing partners as seriously as we do our customers and insist on supporting domestic material sources and manufacturers. All of our products are made in the U.S. from domestically sourced materials. Please contact us if you any suggestions or issues with our product. We want to hear both the good points and those that we can improve upon.

 

We believe in supporting domestic manufacturing and our own economy. All our products are made from domestically sourced materials in U.S. factories. We know there are quality shops producing top tier garments and we value their position within our supply chain. This may lead to slightly different pricing than you find from overseas suppliers, but we feel its worth the effort.

8-28-18 The Pillar - Purple Monkey Garage

Sep 6, 2018 01:00:14

Description:

The Pillar - This week's guests, Don and Josh with Purple Monkey Garage.

 

Video @ https://youtu.be/p-J7cSm-E4Y

 

About Purple Monkey Garage:

Purple Monkey Garage was birthed out of the need of millions.

In a world dominated by motivational speakers, failing dreams, and economic turmoil, we have created what is believed by many to be the most complete coaching/consulting company in the world. Instead of building engines or realigning tires, we’ve forged a comprehensive toolbox that’s already helped thousands.

Everyone needs coaching. Arnold Schwarzenegger had a coach. Michael Jordan had a coach. Huge companies like Amazon and Google spend millions on coaches. Yet the start-up to $50 million size businesses think it’s “too expensive” or that they “know what they’re doing”. Sadly 83% of those businesses fail. 60% need outside money to stay afloat. And the majority of the leadership is suffering marriage, health, and family issues. Life is meant to be enjoyed.

Anyone can own their business but few will truly own their life.

Purple Monkey Garage’s teachings have been raved about by huge names from governors of states, presidential candidates, network television, billionaire CEOs, and household-name brands. We don’t have to name drop because we are the name to drop. Now, literally 20 million people have been exposed to our brand of teaching.

Birdman runs down the answers to the questions that David has had answers to since the beginning and that he has pretended to not understand.

Hopefully this will help anyone to understand what happened to the $42,000 and how David has caused his own harm by casting doubt upon an organization that simply holds its members to standards.

MISSION

Patriotic Online Marketplace is a dedicated marketplace for Military Owned and First Responder Owned Businesses.  Conceptually, we are similar to Etsy, the difference is all of our sellers are Service Members, First Responders, Veterans, or their immediate family members. We allow our patriotic entrepreneurs to easily open an e-commerce shop for free saving them time and money. 

ADAM & LESLIE MANEEN

A few years ago, I was suddenly thrown into a whole new world of uncertainty when I met Adam.  First came a year-long deployment, then came my first permanent change-of-station (PCS) move.  I wanted to contribute to the family income, but soon realized sacrifices to being a military spouse extended well beyond the loneliness of a deployment.  By not working, I felt this huge loss of independence and like many military spouses, I turned to e-commerce.  I came up with an idea to make 'releasable' baby headbands because all the baby headbands we found were one piece of fabric and inevitable fell down around our baby's neck. I searched for a ‘releasable’ or ‘breakaway’ headbands but could not find anything, so I thought “I’ll make the ‘releasable’ headbands myself” and thought I was solving a problem and on my way to a small entrepreneurial success.

However, opportunity turned into frustration at how over-saturated other marketplaces had become.  Adam saw my disappointment and said, “It’s too bad you can’t highlight the fact that you are a military spouse, I bet people would want to buy from you.” That was it. That was our ‘Eureka’ moment. We felt compelled to create a dedicated marketplace for the military community to sell their products to the public.  

The best part of POMP USA is the ability to build it in our vision. Though we never pursued the ‘releasable’ headband, the journey that began with one idea has opened up so many additional opportunities. We feel blessed to enable others in their pursuit of business success and are proud to be part of the military community and thankful for a grateful nation –Leslie & Adam (Sam & Charleigh, too!)

 

Dan O'Brien Co-Owner Patriotic Online Marketplace   Command Sgt. Maj. Retired Daniel S. O'Brien joined the military in 1990 and served in various overseas and stateside assignments.  In addition to all key leadership positions, CSM (R) O'Brien has extensive military training and awards.

6-26-18 - The Pillar - Stacie Walker (Prym1 Camo) and Jason Murff (Grill Your Ass Off)

Jul 5, 2018 01:00:10

Description:

The Pillar - Guests include Stacie Walker (Prym1 Camo) and Jason Murff (Grill Your Ass Off).

Video @ https://youtu.be/JmruY6P1BJA

 

About Prym1 Camo:

The Evolution of an Artist, Stacie Walker, Prym1 Camo Founder.

After years of being a professional wildlife artist, as well as an avid hunter, my job has been to study the specific patterns  & textures of animals in nature and to mimic them in my art.

Years of study led me to develop Prym1 Camo, which uses the colours and textures of nature with the organic patterns of wildlife to create a camo with the effectiveness of a predator.

Developing the Pattern, Prym1 Logic.

When hunting, we do not always stay stationary in front of a tree. More often than not, we are stalking. This presents a problem if your camouflage is designed to only blend into a wooded terrain.

Prym1 Camo has been professionally designed with the idea of using organic shapes rather than trees and leaves.

We want to function with the efficiency of a predator.

The spots on a leopard are unique, yet they work whether he is in a tree or stalking on the ground.

Be the Predator, Trees Don't Hunt, Predators Do.

 

Our dynamic line of camo looks, feels and moves like a predator, breaking from the same old foliage features that have dominated camouflage until now. 

PRYM1 is a series of patterns that utilize the colors and tones of nature combined with the organic shapes and motion of wildlife to effectively imitate a predator in the wild.

6-5-18 - The Pillar - OATH - Falcon 37 - Wheelchairs for Warriors

Jun 7, 2018 01:04:00

Description:

The Pillar - OATH - Falcon 37 - Wheelchairs for Warriors

Video @ https://youtu.be/42QKPjSI6sk

About OATH:

Outdoor Association for True Heroes, Incorporated, or OATH, Inc., is a faith based Nonprofit Organization that utilizes various outdoors activities centered around Faith, Family, and Community to improve the quality of life of our eligible Veterans.

The members of our nation’s armed forces are some the finest Heroes that you’d ever want to meet.  They voluntarily raise their rights hands and take an OATH to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  When asked, they journey to distant shores to protect our families and our way of life.  For those that are not called to deploy, they spend their entire careers training and preparing for that call.  It’s what they do…and they do it well.  Some of these Heroes end up spending an entire career training, preparing, waiting and sometimes yearning for that call.  Sometimes, at no fault of their own, they serve very long and very admirable careers without ever receiving that call.  For them, there is a place at OATH.  On the other side of the table, we have those that were called into harm’s way.   They pack up, they ruck up, they move out and they serve as the tip of the spear.  Immediately upon their return, our nation’s Combat Veterans are a changed people.  In one way or another, they are not the same person they once were when they left the shores of this great nation in her defense.  Some return to us missing limbs.  Some return to us in wheelchairs.  Some return to us with visible scars.  Others return to us with invisible scars that, much like their physical scars, will never fully heal.  We as a society might not fully comprehend what these Heroes, both male and female, have survived.  For those that can’t directly relate, one can never adequately explain what their eyes have seen and what their bodies have endured.  They went.  They fought.  They returned.  For them, there is a place at OATH.  Outdoor Association for True Heroes, Incorporated, or OATH, Inc. has been established to serve two purposes.  The first purpose is fairly obvious to most, but it needs to be driven home.  OATH, Inc. gives our eligible Heroes an outlet to just sit…and relax…and heal.  These Heroes deserve the very best we have to offer in terms of admiration and appreciation, and it’s our calling at OATH to give them exactly what they deserve !

Our second purpose extends to those that have been searching feverishly for ways to give back and support these Heroes.  You love America, you love her values, and you love her Veterans, but you just need an outlet from which to provide some sort of support.  You’ve been looking at different nonprofit organizations, but you just can’t decide who will use your donations in the most honorable and efficient manner. Look no further.   You’ve found that nonprofit organization.  OATH can provide you with several different outlets by which you can support our Heroes.  Whether you’re a Ranch Owner, Outfitter, Private Land Owner, Lease Manager, Business Owner or just a regular member of society that is looking to support in a direct and impactful manner, we can help you satisfy your desire to give back to these deserving Heroes.  There are numerous different ways to give back:  you can help host an event, you can donate directly to a specific event, you can set up monthly donations, you can donate equipment, gear or services, you can stay involved through various event attendance.  Visit our “Contact Us” tab, and reach out to us accordingly.  In the end, OATH cannot and will not succeed without the generosity and the embracing of our mission from folks like yourselves.  The Heroes of OATH are only half of the approved solution.  YOU are the other half.  Come join us.  Change a life.

The VA is underfunded, undermanned, and through no fault of its own, creates a gap.

“No man left behind” is the famous ethos of American soldiers and Marines on the battlefield. Veterans stood in the gap for us, frequently sacrificing life and limb. We owe it to them to not forget and never leave them behind.

Wheelchairs for Warriors custom fit wheelchairs to fit the individual veterans' physical and lifestyle needs. Our on-staff mechanical engineer suffered with his veteran father, who was unable to acquire the proper fitting wheelchair and he shared in the agony his father endured having his legs amputated, and ultimately deciding the struggle was not worth it.

After only a few months in his proper wheelchair, he passed away. This veterans quality of life was no quality at all. Wheelchairs for Warriors is on a mission to make sure this does not have to happen. Note: The regional VA, who took 3 years to provide the wheelchair, refused to take it back to recycle, even though it was only used four times, so the effort and the financial resources spent were a complete waste.

About Tier One Marketing Solutions:

In 2018, a crack marketing team was outcast by current marketing industry bigwigs for putting their customers first. These men promptly escaped from Facebook jail to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still hated by their competitors they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them….maybe you can hire “Tier One Marketing Solutions”

What happens when 2 leaders in their respective fields come together to do it their way and change a industry? This is our story. The current marketing industry is broken. We are tired of hearing about clients getting taken advantage of and not getting the results they need for the health of their business. It is time for some change in the marketing industry. We separately always put our respective clients first, We are not afraid to tell you “you don’t need that or that is a waste of money” The difference is we will show you why. We will not talk you into service you don’t need. We will find the best solution to your problem without wasting your money. If you want to throw your money away we will gladly point you in the direction of a good credible charity.

Don’t get us wrong we love the Phone book, they make great targets…

If you want to continue pursuing marketing in the same manner you have been, great go ahead.

If you want to start coloring out of the box, and stand out from your competition and peers, then give us a call.

About Hiperfire:

FEEL WHAT YOU BECOME

We are all on a journey to become something. To become someone.

From the day we’re put on this earth, what we are bound to become is very different than the existence we are born in to. We are destined to evolve. It is in our blood to change.

Being human is to become. Something bigger, something stronger, something better. To open our eyes and be aware that we are something new just by what we take in. What we experience.

To be, is simple. To become, takes action.

At HIPERFIRE, we didn’t set out to become something different. We set out to be true to ourselves and became something different in the process. We’re the result of the tireless pursuit of perfection. The outcome of a burning desire to innovate that can only be called a passion.

We understand where the firearms industry is today, and we’re ready to transform it.

It’s time to experience the new potential in performance.

It’s time to experience HIPERFIRE and Feel What You Become.

About McClean Corp USA:

Who designed the McLean DRS and Why?

With years of  tactical industry experience, as a soldier only being issued a generic  Single point or an adjustable 2 point sling introduce the Idea of a single point with a Built in Retention System. Delivering the versatility of a single point sling yet offering the ability to be retained as a 2 point sling with just a quick connection of our Patented Quick Release design. The McLean DRS is not your average 2-point to 1-point convertible sling. It is essentially a single point sling with much needed retention system built into it. Its ability to transition from a retained position to engaging targets is unmatched by any other sling on the market.

The Pro's of a single point sling is its ability to allow for dynamic movement with your rifle for CQC/CQB environments. Its great for switching shoulders, shooting under cars or around barricades and even simple things such as just combat reloads or transitioning to your secondary/pistol. 
The Con's are when you want to be hands free from the rifle, because now it is free to bang around wherever it wants do it its single point of connection. Now this makes prisoner handling or even climbing a ladder difficult.

The Pro's of a 2 point sling is its ability to easily be retained for climbing ladders or prisoner handling. Even patrolling with a 2 point sling is easier because you don't have to maintain positive control of your rifle the entire time.
The Con's of a 2 point sling is you lose a lot of the dynamic mobility and freedom of movement that you would otherwise have with a single point sling, for example switching shoulders or even simple things such as combat reloads.

About Badass Babe:

I started this business because I wanted my personal jewelry to reflect who I am and what I believe in. I'm a small town girl from Midwest farm country and have built a wonderful life and good reputation here in the Flathead Valley.

I believe in making and fixing things MYSELF. I believe in my word and a "handshake deal". I believe in standing behind what I make. I believe in bootstrapping and old-fashioned hard work. I believe in standing up and putting my foot down when lines are crossed. I believe the American Dream is not dead.

This jewelry is, in a physical sense, the art of war - it reminds us of how hard we have fought for the freedom we have today.

I started making these pieces because I wanted to wear them and be able to make them and give them to friends. I make them because I like shooting and collecting brass. I make them because I have fun creating good-looking, functional stuff that resonates with others.

Every piece of spent-round ammunition jewelry is individually hand-crafted with as many made-in-the-USA parts as possible - supporting US companies is one way we can use our dollars to drive our nation forward.  Badass Babe also donates 5% of gross sales to the Northwest MT Veterans Stand Down in Kalispell, MT.  Supporting our veterans, law enforcement and first responders is incredibly important; we cannot do enough to thank them.

About Seal 1:

SEAL 1, LLC’s managing director, Dwight Settle served 20 years as a Navy Seal working in the most extreme environments.  As the (AW-automatic weapons) M-60 gunner in his platoon the only way to truly clean the weapon was using dry cleaning solvent.  This became no longer available due to how toxic it was to the user and the environment.  He remembers his fingers and hands being dry and cracked after every cleaning.  The switch was made to Break Free CLP but it just wasn't’ as effective.  
  For the M-60 and any of the weapons the SEALS carried to perform properly there needed to be a liberal amount of lube on the rails.  This created a situation where they had to be very cognizant of how they carried their weapons.  It was critical that great care was taken in protecting their weapons from dirt and sand; otherwise the weapons could jam and become useless.
  The SEAL 1, LLC development team came together  to bring a high end  green engineered gun cleaning and gun care line to the military, law enforcement and shooting industry that would all but alleviate corrosion and jams in weapons and make cleaning more effective and much quicker.
  With SEAL 1™ CLP PLUS™ all these concerns are a thing of the past.   When using SEAL 1's new generation CLP PLUS™ your weapon will perform at a more proficient level and virtually eliminate jams and corrosion and make cleaning a much more enjoyable task.  
  Our testing confirms that your weapon will perform in the most extreme environmental conditions.

About American Freedom Ammo:

Here at American Freedom Ammo, we are more than just a business. We are a business birthed out of a purpose! Our purpose is one of a deep desire to spread the American Dream again - a dream of becoming a great company through serving our customers, community, and country. We are very proud to partner with and represent the pistol and rifle ammunition companies we do. We will continue to grow and expand our offerings and service to you, the real owners!

We have elected God as our CEO and Chief Spiritual Officer at American Freedom Ammo. He is the one who has made this possible, and we will honor Him for it by operating in a way that we hope will glorify Him. That does not mean we will be the perfect company; we will be a company that strives to be. Through Him ALL things are possible, and we pray He will have favor on us in this mission.

American Freedom Ammo was founded by Walter Bourdage in Big Fork, Montana. Walter is your quintessential American entrepreneur. He and his wife Debbiy, with their four children, have a passion for the outdoors and business. They moved to the northwest portion of Montana in 2014 and have loved it ever since. After conversations with the great folks at Underwood Ammo, it became clear there was a partnership in the making and an opportunity being born. Walter and Debbiy have a love for their country and all the founding beliefs on which it was born. They chose to become part of the solution rather than just talking about the problems and founded American Freedom Ammo, a place where firearm enthusiasts can buy ammunition online.

In this journey, we expect to partner with other companies that have a vision for expanding the American Dream to consumers and partners. We believe that everyone who participates with us in this project is just as valuable in its growth as those building it. All of us are responsible for the positive growth of our beloved country and are given the chance to stand up for her!

About Obsidian Arms:

We make our products so that the people that serve our country and community have the tools to get home at the end of the day.  We make our products for hunters so we can hear their stories of their once in a lifetime hunt.  We make our products for the competitors to take glory in their wins knowing their gear did not fail them.  We make our products so the everyday person can enjoy the shooting sports and have the tools to protect themselves and their families.  This is why in 2013 Wade Wilson and his family founded Obsidian Arms and brought their first part to market in the Twin Cities of Minnesota.  From the beginning, great care has been taken in the manufacturing and assembling of our products because we pride ourselves in creating products that look fantastic and function at the highest level.  To meet our high standards, we use raw materials produced in the USA for our Minnesota based manufacturing.  When sourcing parts that we do not make ourselves, we look to other local companies that also share our vision of making high quality products.  The excitement of creating that first part and showing the rest of the world, still rings true with every product that is made today.

About CP Tactical:

From the start of our business we have engineered C.P. Tactical around the education aspect of the firearm industry. In 2015 Chris and Chet Perfetto had a vision of starting a shooting range as a retirement endeavor for Chris after he left the Army. Chet, being a Naval Officer, wanted to bring an all inclusive range to the area that encompassed the best of both the veteran, police and civilian communities. This was the start of Tactical Solutions. As the planning continued, the range was expanded to be a firearms shop and a training facility that houses a state of the art 25 yard from firing line to back-stop shooting range that is unlike any other on the East Coast. Our ventilation system has a unique HEPA filtration system and the range is made to be used for military and police tactical training as well as civilian shooting and competition shoots. We are currently open for business and have been offering our memberships, range rentals, gun sales, gunsmithing to the public since December 2017.

Meet McClean:

With years of  tactical industry experience, as a soldier only being issued a generic  Single point or an adjustable 2 point sling introduce the Idea of a single point with a Built in Retention System. Delivering the versatility of a single point sling yet offering the ability to be retained as a 2 point sling with just a quick connection of our Patented Quick Release design. The McLean DRS is not your average 2-point to 1-point convertible sling. It is essentially a single point sling with much needed retention system built into it. Its ability to transition from a retained position to engaging targets is unmatched by any other sling on the market.

The Pro's of a single point sling is its ability to allow for dynamic movement with your rifle for CQC/CQB environments. Its great for switching shoulders, shooting under cars or around barricades and even simple things such as just combat reloads or transitioning to your secondary/pistol. 
The Con's are when you want to be hands free from the rifle, because now it is free to bang around wherever it wants do it its single point of connection. Now this makes prisoner handling or even climbing a ladder difficult.

The Pro's of a 2 point sling is its ability to easily be retained for climbing ladders or prisoner handling. Even patrolling with a 2 point sling is easier because you don't have to maintain positive control of your rifle the entire time.
The Con's of a 2 point sling is you lose a lot of the dynamic mobility and freedom of movement that you would otherwise have with a single point sling, for example switching shoulders or even simple things such as combat reloads.

About the Badass:

In my previous lives as a machinist, carpenter and landscaper, I've always worked with my hands – creating something from raw materials.

As a rather outspoken and opinionated woman, I've always worn shirts and jewelry that make statements about my beliefs and personality – I don't just wear my heart on my sleeve, it's my whole self out there. Not everyone is going to like me and that's okay.

Making “statement” jewelry of my own, at a price point people like myself can afford, was an easy and organic transition from my previous creative endeavors. I still make fun stuff, I make stuff that makes people happy, and I still make it with my own two hands.

About James Gray:

James is a 26 year veteran of the Indianapolis Metro Police Department, having spent the majority of that time on the street.  He is also an 18.5  year  member of SWAT having recently retired from the team in April of 2015.  He is currently assigned to the Firearms Range within the Training Division. Throughout his career he has been involved in numerous critical incidents including three lethal police action shootings. James is a state certified general and firearms instructor. James was also a Deputy U.S. Marshal in Washington D.C. for two years prior to IMPD.  He has attended numerous schools including firearms, explosive breaching, SWAT, and executive protection. James has a B.S. degree from Indiana University.  He is travelling around the country speaking on Officer Involved Shootings for Dolan Consulting Group and will be a presenter at the 2017 I.A.C.P in Philadelphia.  He was recently interviewed by Brian Willis of the Excellence in Training Academy.

Why was Triggersafe created?

Triggersafe™ was designed to fix a weapon problem that officers and citizens knew occurred, but no one wanted to discuss,  Negligent Discharges. When a person with a rifle does not have "positive control" of the weapon, the chances of a negligent discharge increase.  Positive control is when we have our hands on the weapon and control the safety and trigger. The chance that a piece of gear or other object can push the trigger is greatly reduced with a Triggersafe™ in place.  Triggersafe™ was intended for environments and times when we don't have full control of the weapon. 

Triggersafe™ is manufactured in LaPorte, Indiana. This advanced safety feature is being used by citizens around the country, officers and SWAT Teams.

In this episode Birdman interviews Chance Paris at The Hub Fest, a newer Anteris Alliance member and the owner of CP Tactical Solutions, LLC.

Video @ https://youtu.be/osoF39lA6FI

 

About Chance Paris:

I, Chance Paris, was born and raised in the great state of Texas.  I currently reside in Pampa, which is a small town in the Texas panhandle.   I went to college at Southwestern Oklahoma State University.  Received a Bachelors of Science in Park Law enforcement and a minor in Wildland Fire Management.  During the early years of college I worked in the oil field to pay my way through college.   My junior year of college I was approached and asked if I would be interested in being a wildland firefighter.  At that very moment I had no idea what a wildland firefighter did, but it sounded like an adrenaline rush.  I enrolled in my first wildland class and fell in love with everything that came with being a wildland firefighter.  I worked for the BIA throughout the rest of college.  Then I accepted a position in Tucson AZ working for the Sagurao Fire Use Module.  I worked there for roughly 3 years and then took a position on the Coronado National forest in AZ.   I worked there for 2 years before taking a position back home for the National Park Service.  I have fought wildfires in almost every state of the United States.   I loved the brotherhood, it was something that is hard to replicate outside of fire.  There was just something about knowing that you were doing something for the greater good and not just yourself.  I met my wife in late 2012 and just a few days later I was on an assignment to NYC for superstorm Sandy.  From that point I had to choose what was the most important thing in my life.  In September 18, 2013 I took a job working for an oil and gas company.  By taking this job I was able to enjoy the small things in life that I had missed out on the last 10 years.  I was able to focus on my family, faith, and the future. 

 

My passion has always been firearms.  Over the next few years I started to notice where customer service was heading in the firearms industry, and I wasn’t happy with it.  At that moment I decided there were two options: sit back and do nothing, or do something to make a difference.  I opted out for option two, and this is where the story begins for CP Tactical Solutions, LLC.  I started grinding out what I wanted in a company, and the same values kept coming to the top.  It was Customer Service, awesome product, reasonable prices, respect and integrity.  These are the criteria that built the foundation for CP Tactical Solutions.  I grew up where a hand shake was a binding contract, and a man’s word was all you needed.  CP Tactical Solutions is bringing this mindset back to life.  If I require you to sign a 20 page contract there’s a good chance I probably don’t need to do business with you.  We do our best to make sure each and every purchase done with us is streamlined and easy.  We believe that you shouldn’t have to purchase a firearm, suppressor, or accessory without giving it a test drive.  We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee with all our clients.   We take the time with every customer to find out what firearm meets their exact needs.  We have built our business on word of mouth.   No fancy advertising, heck we are just now working on our website.  We look at it with the mindset that if we put out an awesome product with even better customer service, the world will beat a path to your doorstep.

In this episode Birdman chats with Adam Martin with Blackbird Anthem about his background, history in military service, and why he started playing music, singing, writing music, and turned into a performing artist.

Full Video @ https://youtu.be/bfsh0ukCHHk

Visit the website @ http://www.blackbirdanthem.com/


About Adam Martin:

After coming home from Iraq in 2004, I needed an outlet to help relieve stress and readjust to life. I taught myself how to play the guitar by watching YouTube videos and starting singing (or trying to) about a year later. Two years ago I started writing songs and playing live. It was then that David Bruce, a life-time musician and songwriter, offered to play bass. Today, we are Blackbird Anthem, an independent band in the heartland of Florida making music people connect with.

People often ask what type of music we play and we just say American rock n' roll. Before the days of labeling music by category or genre, before there were such things as alternative, pop country, indie rock, outlaw country, and southern rock, there was just good old American Rock n' Roll. Legends like Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Waylon Jennings, and the Rolling Stones played a blend of country, blues, rock, and folk to create a sound that was called Rock n' Roll.
We share the belief that great Rock n' Roll music doesn't have to fit into any one category. It's all music, and it's all Rock n' Roll. Our songs tell stories of love, heartache, one night stands, tattoos, alcohol, and the effects of war. All the things that make American rock music so great.

Tribute to Taylor Jean Parkins by Adam Martin of Blackbird Anthem

Jul 21, 2017 03:01

Description:

by Sarah Parkins-Pyles 

 

Over the past 24 hrs, I've been contemplating sharing this as it's so special and so thoughtful. Selfishly, I kind of wanted to keep this just for me to hold close to my heart.  I then realized that something this awesome and this beautiful needs to be shared and it would be selfish of me not to. 

My friend Adam Martin, who is a very talented lead singer for Blackbird Anthem, and solo artist currently on tour, texted this to me yesterday evening.  It was created in honor of my daughter Taylor who just a few weeks ago was tragically killed in a car accident.  I didn't ask for Adam to do this and I was in awe that Adam took the time out of his busy schedule to do this for my family.  I am blessed. 

I met Adam along with many other awesome people through Anteris Alliance. This is not a marketing ad or "click bait" post in anyway what so ever. And I share this with you to pay it forward in Taylors honor.  

This is a cover to a beautiful song called Lead Me Home, original artist Jamey Johnson.  

The entire Anteris Alliance family have given so much love and support, I don't even know where to begin to repay them.  If you don't yet know of BlackBird Anthem, Adam C Martin, or Anteris Alliance, you definitely should look them up and follow on Facebook to see for yourself how special they all are.

When the Alliance and our partners found out that Taylor had passed, every single one of them jumped into action to immediately to support and pray for our family.  Whether it were sending flowers, providing a meal, sending a card, text, honoring Taylor on their live FB show, making a gracious donation to her go fund me page (for a memorial bench), making a cover song, and YES several even came from a far to attend her Celebration of Life!  

My point is that not only is the Alliance a Family of Brands" but also a "Family"....and I am forever grateful.  To have only known Adam and the Alliance family for a little over 6 months, and to see the heart ❤️ and soul of this group and its partners first hand, I knew I had to share with you all.  I know I'm long winded and I apologize this post is so long, but it is important to me to share the heart and soul of the people of the Alliance and how strong of a bond we have in such a short amount of time.  It's much more than a bunch of companies cross promoting their business, They are true to their name and character and are definitely worth sharing with the world.

I thank you Adam for this cover, I vow to pay it forward and continue to honor my beautiful girl who will NEVER be forgotten.

It all started back in 1995, when our founder was a Lt and the brand new Snacko of the 44th Fighter Squadron. Every product in the squadron had a different vendor, and he was always trying to figure out "who made it for us last time." Often, he and the LPA just went with whichever company the last guy used, and settled for the random level of service and quality. Fast forward three more flying assignments, and Trap had an idea...why not create a company to provide the products a squadron needs all in one place? And there you go, Aviator Gear was born!

Who is Ron "Reaper 01" Bellan:

My overall Lifestyle comes from our family values and a life time of experiences. From living off the land when I was a young man to the battlefield of Iraq and Afghanistan. I not only bring my professional experiences into my current lifestyle, but my personal experiences play a big role in all of my adventures. From surviving the outdoors, TV, and Speaking engagements, I hold nothing back. I believe we should learn from others both good and bad and pass this on for others to be successful and make up their own minds in their personal and professional life.

There is nothing like the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) theory. We all like to think our ideas are better and our way is best for all. Sometimes we should all stick to the basics and we will find ourselves running a smoother ship. Surround yourself with good people both at work and in our private life. Treat each day like the last and plan for the future. Always keep your head toward the Horizon and the rest will follow. Life is to be enjoyed and the person you are is decided by what you do when people aren't watching.

Episode 12 - ARN - SSP Eyewear

In this episode Birdman talks with Sara Mellado, Operations Manager, SSP Eyewear.

You can check out the SSP Eyewear website @ https://sspeyewear.com

SSP Eyewear and has been manufacturing world-class eyewear for over a decade. Our business is dedicated to Don Bechtel, grandfather of SSP eyewear’s president and founder, Mike Bechtel, who lost an eye as a child. Our mission is to spread the word that safety eyewear is necessary, not just on the jobsite and sporting activities, but also in day-to-day life. We are committed to creating safety sunglasses that provide exceptional protection, great styles, coordinated colors and superior fit. It really is possible to have all of the comfort and eye appeal of a sunglass with the protection of a safety glass. 

Eyewear Facts

Fashionable: 87% of eye injuries occur because people were not wearing safety glasses. People do not wear safety glasses because they are unfashionable, uncomfortable and hinder their view. SSP is dedicated to creating safety sunglasses that are fashionable, comfortable and beg to be worn.

Shatterproof Lenses: SSP’s safety sunglass lenses are prepared with a superior anti-scratch coating and shatterproof polycarbonate. They have been rigorously tested by labs approved by the ANSI (American National Standards Institute), a private non-profit organization that provides the standard that OSHA upholds and enforces. All SSP safety sunglasses meet or exceed ANSI Z87+ and are marked on the temple and at least one lens. Each pair of safety glasses is tested with a complex machine that shoots a 1/4 inch steel ball at over 100 mph.

High-Quality Decentered Lenses: Have you ever worn a cheap pair of glasses and ended up with a headache? All SSP lenses are designed with high-quality optically correct Decentered Lenses. This feature makes the lenses optically correct (so that the center of the lenses align with your pupils) for better vision and to eliminate refraction on curved lenses.

Temples: Uniquely designed to be flexible to minimize pinching and are comfortable for all day use. They are so comfortable, you might not even realize your safety glasses are on your face.

Rubber Tips: A unique rubber compound that is permanently attached, is soft and pliable for nose pads and temple tips. As it is exposed to moisture from perspiration and body heat it becomes tacky, securing your glasses to your face.

Frames: The frames are designed precisely to position your safety sunglasses to three points of contact; you’ll experience a fit that’s free of unwanted pressure points. The wrap around design positions the lenses in a way that guarantees the widest and clearest field of vision possible and minimizes distortion. They are lightweight, flexible….weather resistant, and temperature resistant material. 95% of the frames are available in a high-quality pearl paint finish in popular colors.

 

Who is Sara Mellado:

Sara is the Operations Manager for SSP Eyewear since January 2016.  I am also the Granddaughter of World War II and Korean War Veteran Richard C. Mellado who’s folded flag resides in my home. He continues to be my inspiration.  His family were immigrants of Spain and lived in poverty for many years. Upon turning 18, my grandfather served in World War II as a Radio-Gunner and later served in the Korean War. He retired from the Air Force as a Technical Sergeant. He also served as Regional Director of Veteran Employment Services and later became the Labor Commissioner for the state of Texas. You can say he had a strong work ethic and never gave up and never stopped trying to improve the lives of others. My Grandfather passed in February of 2000 and remains my inspiration to work hard and never give up. Working for SSP and being part of the Anteris Alliance has opened many opportunities to work with other Veterans and hear their inspirational stories that need to be heard as well.

 

Episode 11 - ARN - Eric Rice - Sticky Holsters

Description:

Recorded during the Try and Buy at the Pro Gun Club before the 2017 SHOT Show.

In this episode Birdman talks with Eric Rice, Operations Manager, Sticky Holsters

Full Video @ https://youtu.be/2o5GuuxmCAw


Sticky Holsters was founded in 2010 by a former SWAT officer who wanted a simpler option for everyday carry. Sticky Holsters is a 100% American owned and operated company. All of our products are made by hand right here in the USA. We have a Lifetime Warranty on the craftsmanship of our products and we handle all returns internally.

Sticky Holsters brings you a new and exciting way to conceal carry. Our holsters work with compression in the waistband or by friction in the pocket to hold the holster in place for easy access and a smooth draw of your handgun. This self-securing mounting system provides many options for handgun concealment.

There are over 20 different sizes, which include options for light and laser systems. The sizing is generic enough to allow for several different handguns of similar size to be used in the same holster, but be specific enough to provide a snug fit for your handgun.

The exterior of our holsters is made with a supple and soft-to-the-touch rubber that provides a significant amount of grip. This is similar to the material used in the sports industry such as the gloves worn by receivers in the NFL. The grippy or sticky material allows the holster to be held in place by compression in the waistband or friction in the pocket.

The interior material is a woven Cordura nylon that is used extensively in the tactical and sporting industries. The nylon is durable yet friendly to weapon finishes. The center layer of material is a foam product that adds comfort during wear and also molds the holster to the shape of your handgun using the warmth of your body in waistband or pocket carry.

Since our holsters do not uses any clips, loops, or hooks they are naturally ambidextrous. Not having a clip allows the holster to be worn without a belt, in gym shorts, yoga pants, or sweat pants. Since there are no clips, most of the weight of the gun is actually off your pants and is being distributed against your body.

With a modular design and multiple applications as our goal, the Sticky Holster can be mounted several different ways on the body as well as off body carry. Our Sticky Anklebiter is unique from all others systems as it will conform your existing Sticky Holster into an ankle rig. The wrap design allows the operator to adjust the cant or angle of the holster to the most comfortable position.

Need to have your handgun at the ready when it’s not on your body? The Sticky Travel Mount provides a simple place to store your handgun AND Sticky Holster. The Travel Mount can be used in such locations such as vehicle center consoles, glove boxes, motorcycle saddle bags, boat compartments, night stand, and desk or anywhere you need to have your handgun available.

Thank you for your interest in Sticky Holsters. We are an American company that prides ourselves on bringing you a quality product that is practical, comfortable, economical, and built here in the USA!

Nathan Love - Frontier Tactical

Video @https://youtu.be/ld9qNcuLLCM


This Episode Birdman caught up with Nathan Love to talk about his experiences on Earth and his company Frontier Tactical.
 
Nathan Love - Founder of Frontier Tactical

Nathan served in the U.S. Army as an infantry soldier for almost a decade. As an infantryman, he was deployed to Kosovo and Iraq. His combat in Iraq resulted in the award of a Purple Heart and numerous other citations, awards and badges (such as the Expert and Combat Infantryman Badges.)

Upon his honorable discharge, he attended the Colorado School of Trades for Gunsmithing. His career path led him to contracting for the military. As a contractor, he deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan many times, over the course of seven years. He was recruited and deployed as a small arms repairer and inspector. The knowledge and experience he gained working closely with the military on their weapon systems in combat theaters proved invaluable in the creation of Frontier Tactical.

As a disabled veteran, Mr. Love makes the solid commitment to other veterans in his intent to provide training and employment for his peers. He recognizes that many companies have at best paid lip-service to veterans, and at worst have used veteran programs to their own advantage while circumventing any benefit to those who have served this nation.
