You may not have caught this, but I have updated the Training Cadre page to reflect Aaron & Chris.
Here is the text:
Aaron has been in the US army for over 10 years with multiple combat tours to both Iraq and Afghanistan. He has experience in both conventional and Special Operations within the US Army as well as working with foreign militaries, GO’s and NGO’s. He has trained thousands of military personnel from all branches of service as well as foreign military personnel and civilians. Aaron specializes in small arms, weapons manipulation, small unit tactics, convoy operations and personal protection. Aaron was selected for the Max Velocity Tactical cadre after careful consideration. He is an excellent instructor with a great demeanor and ability to connect with students. Aaron’s primary responsibly is running the Weapons Manipulation Classes.

After several more assignments, Chris left the army with 12 years of service and went in to the private military contract sector. He spent time in Kabul, Kandahar and the Helmand area of Afghanistan escorting government and business officials through high threat environments while simultaneously training afghan personal protection forces (APPF) and conducting site assessments and security vulnerability of numerous static locations through out the country.
