"Fact Monza dad for speaking out against their CRT curriculum this crazy anti America hate America racist curriculum they didn't like that they were going to kill their speech and stop them But they needed a reason to go after them and to use the counter terrorism division at the FBI to do so So they said hey let's write this letter and we will use it as the pretext to do what we want Because we now have emails that show communication between the school board association particularly be able to Garcia and the Biden White House before the letter was sent So this is like Comey when he said Comey knew the dossier was garbage But he wanted to go spy on the Trump campaign He says so give me something that I can use as a pretext to go apply the court to get the warrant to go spy on the Trump campaign Shazam here comes the dossier same thing here Same thing here and it's frightening that when you think that they were choreographing this stuff organizing this stuff from the get go And the fact that Garland came in and told us what he did I think he misled the country think maybe even potentially even lied to us That's why we need to have him back But it's scary when the FBI counter terrorism division is going after and using using the school board's letter as the reason to do what they wanted to do That is Frank We're talking to congressman Jim Jordan author of the new book do what you said You would do An important book Congressman if what you're saying out here turns out to be true You know I know a lot of times it's fashionable on TV This guy should resign That guy should resign You know some people just do it 'cause it's an act I get it But if what you're saying here is true about this memo and Merrick Garland Merrick Garland has to resign This is a clear cut case of outrageous government abuse I mean bad enough and you were all over the spy gay case in the rush hour You were all over sounding you and Devin Nunes and others But it's bad enough to have spied on a presidential candidate and potentially a president Donald Trump And we know that happened We know the name of the spy But to have intentionally targeted deliberately American parents who want a quality education there from their kids free from racist training right To target them with the most powerful counter terror and intelligence tools in the country and then use a memo as a pretext I really don't know how much worse it gets Here's the timeline too Dan So the letter that there's coordination before the letter because again the letter was the pretext The letters get sent on the 29th the two days later October 1st viola Garcia the president of the school board association She then gets a plum assignment at the nest at the Department of Education on this big fancy board So that happens two days after she sends a letter Three days after the letter over that weekend Kim Lang in the same individual who sent the email out to FBI agents with the threat tag the email we got because of a whistleblower That same individual on the October 2nd third just three days after that letter was sent He's already talking with the Department of Justice on how to implement the letter So in other words he's talking with the Department of Justice about how to implement the memo that hasn't even yet been written because Garland's memos in the memo to October 4th That tells you how preplanned this stuff was That's the scary part And but for the whistleblower coming forward we wouldn't know how extensive it was that this email goes out to FBI agents around the country with this threat tag designation that they're putting on moms and dads And the first question I had asked me at Garland if you came back which I hope Jerry Nadler will ultimately do when he comes back I'm going to ask him what's the number How many parents now have this designation associated with their name Moms and dads who show up at a school board meeting defending their kids standing up against this terrible curriculum how many parents have that number or that's using that designation beside their name right now That'd be the first question he'd have to answer Congressman you said something there too that really should peak everyone's the antennas should be going up all over the country and every station we're on right now You said something true and powerful Government never works this fast There is no way in Hades No way that this national school board memo made it to Merrick Garland and amid light speed appointments were made by the people involved Job offers were made The FBI got up and running and the DoJ turned around There's just no way this had to be preplanned Yeah totally totally preplanned You've never seen government move that fast in our lifetime So now the other thing is I give the least Stefani credit because we wouldn't have known about Tim Lang and having those initial conversations that just three days after the letter is sent But for questioning she did in an Intel open Intel committee hearing on November 3rd So we learned this a month later in an Intel hearing where she asked a few questions and we find out you had actually talked about the memo implementing the memo before the memories had been written Again just showing how coordinated they were in going after parents moms and dads out there We're talking to congressman Jim Jordan author of the terrific new book do what you said you would do Congressman I know you're busy thank you for spending the time and sincerely thanks for staying on top of this I know this government overreach stuff It's sometimes it's not the sexiest topic in the world but government has a monopoly on force They have a powerful Intel operation here If we're going to turn this on our own citizens congressman as you well know all is lost the republic it means nothing at that point So thanks for focusing a laser on this This is in a critically important story Thank you very much Thanks Thanks You got it sir You got it Congressman Jim Jordan folks author again of do what you said you would do That is an enormous enormous story Do you hear that Jim Enormous story Turning the government apparatus on parents at school board meetings and using this NSB memo as a pretext They got the timeline all wrong folks They wanted this from the start That memo meant nothing They were going to do it anyway That was the pretext You believe this Unreal More on this the other side of the break I'm damn bogino We'll be right back.

"Unfortunately there's too many examples of that not being the case right now. Though i you know we're not far from som areas that you know i can tell you firsthand my wife. Is you know a stick you nurse and she sees gunshot victims all the time you know until everywhere is a safe place right and i can tell you. We sell the bullet safet sir and last year they were hot to trot. Everybody came in and couldn't keep them on the shelf. Yeah no What you look at things through the lens of trying to protect yours right and what you truly love and care about right absolutely threatened. It's one thing but if you feel that they are threatened. You're going to do anything in your power to protect them and their wellbeing. And that's what a lot of people were coming in here with with the riots and the protests and the was things of that nature. You're finding people who look they weren't trying to get involved. I just wanted to make sure that they could ensure their safety. Yeah absolutely well in the so this guy he he against laughing the type of people that might by this type stuff. He was talking about bulletproof vest but he also brought guns into it and so i explained to him that. There's the two people that you're thinking about right now one. They're protecting themselves from other normal people who might just be crazy out to get them protecting themselves from what they see is maybe a government that's gonna try and overstep their bounds but the third category that nobody seems to talk about is why we don't have wars here in the united states wars happen in other countries if we're if we're involved in war most of the time it's happening over there because the majority of their populations not armed. We have an entire army of citizens that could easily protect their own property. in the event. I mean you talk about an outside military force saying in. Don't get me wrong. Most of us don't have military grade equipment but to say we're gonna tak the united states and we wanna play over there. Where are you going to do it because now you have to worry about not only our military forces but also just are civilians right and After i after. I mentioned that to the guy he goes. Oh wow you know what. I actually never thought about it that way. I was like yeah. I mean you say what you want to about any of this stuff. But you know there's a there's a good reason behind everything That people do when they when they're purchasing these items for the most part. Some people have bad intentions. You know. we'll we those people out as best as we can while. And i'll tell you why i mean thank you back to two thousand and one and just the sentiments around those. You know the september eleventh event and you know there was a Huge fear that that you're right nothing had happened on our soil But that doesn't mean we're always safe. And that doesn't mean with afghanistan you know being under taliban control again and with them having a little bit more. Free reign of of a of a whole nation now Our whole country. Now that can you know potentially position themselves to attack freedom it's not. It's not out of the realm of imagination right. Yeah absolutely so with all this being said. I'm gonna kinda switch topics here because we are running close to time. I'm only gonna take about ten minutes of your time With all this being said just like you said we've got to figure out a way to get more people actively involved in in the firearms industry get more people accustomed to shooting guns and handling gun safely. How do we do it. What are some mean. Do you have any ideas. What are some things that we can do that. We're not currently doing to to get more people involved while a this is one of the things where most passionate about okay. Because it's where we're at and it's what we're seeing where in a rather liberal town of ann arbor and You know we're seeing a lot of people who've been scared of guns and who never saw the need to own a gun but then one people fighting in the grocery stores over toilet paper last year all the sudden you know they realized okay. Well i'm not gonna tell my friends. But i'm definitely make sure that i'm safe in my home right until we saw all these people who are coming in not wanting to talk much about it but they didn't they're a threat to themselves right know which end of the gun to hold and how not to you know their finger instantly goes to the trigger and they wanna point it at a you know what we try and do is create if they've space here in our retail environment where we check the guns consistently every single time. They changed hands but be able to take the people where they come and not push them awhile and not make them feel insignificant or stupid for asking. Maybe you know maybe a question that we take for granted because we know it but be able to take these people and provide them the necessary steps that aren't extremely expensive but to be able to give them opportunities to try it before they buy it and give them opportunity to stand by them if they don't like it within thirty days. We're going to refund you whatever you paid for that gun to help you get into something. That's more suitable for you and then it comes down to. We're also going to give you a free private lesson. Purchase without and so these are just different ways that were trying to look. I don't want to sell you a gun half walk out and never use it. I want you to come in and learn how to use it. Because i can tell you or you can watch a video but until you do it firsthand. You're not gonna ever truly be competent right. We want you pass tent. We want to confident so after that first lesson. We're going to give you a something we created. It's basically like when you go to the doctor of script we're gonna give you a script that tells you what you need work on what you covered in your free lesson. And then it's a discount on your next lesson to get you back in. God we're gonna make members of ford -able for anyone to come in and practice i think the biggest Thing we can do is try and rear each each person that comes in through our doors and then one given the opportunity to speak about firearms given opportunity to answer questions across whatever platform you're on be able to say. Look the firearms and bad. There's an inherent sense of responsibility that comes with owning one and your responsibility is to safely. Learn how to use it how to store it and be responsible citizen with it out to join a league. I'm out com. We're gonna have you know inexpensive classes that take you from way to whatever level you want to go but it comes down to your perception of these people if you perceive them as a nuisance if you perceive them as somebody don't feel like dealing with you're going to have issues We want to welcome people with open arms. Because they're coming to us asking for solution if we can't provide that solution that we're not doing anybody who appreciates the second amendment as service right absolutely. Yeah i agree one hundred percent. I think i'm gonna go ahead and wrap it up. But i wanted to do something i think might be kinda fun for just a second. I'm up at five seconds on the clock. Are you comfortable with first name. Shout off for all eleven of your siblings and five seconds. Can you do it okay. Ready.

"Wire just came out with a movie called Run hide fight. And i am not personally seen it yet but i need to know. I haven't either but i'm interested. It's it's it's very interesting to me. And the premise of it is the I saw the trailer. It's a little scary. My understanding of it from the trailer is it's about this School that they have an active shooter situation and there is a girl in there who's trained in firearms and they basically evacuate the whole school and she's like the only one left on the inside and my guess is she ends up being the hero the show. I don't know because i haven't seen it but It's very engaging very interesting. Looks like it's really well done but the most important part to me is. This is a conservative outlet that put this movie together produced it and launched it all on their own. This is the first example of something that's actually being done well and actually has some momentum behind it so this was put out by the daily wire. I think it's available right now and it's called. It's called run hide fight. I believe Interesting so anyway. I hate to check it out. I hate that that opportunity to get got taken away from you guys. I hope that at some point in time in the future you know maybe there's other opportunities that are similar to that through different avenues that you guys like one of the biggest things that we face in the day to day is uh marketing You know through. Most businesses best opportunity to market via social media is completely Censored or firearms industry. And you know you can't even give them your money not promote something no and oftentimes if you push the issue too much. They'll you know suspend your account or you know make it to where the algorithm is set up to not show you in a in the same way that anyone else anybody out that can perm. Oh absolutely anything but if it has to do with the firearm store Firearms industry completely. Shut down yeah. It's it's insane. And they they even go so far as to actually physically remove followers from your account some cases where the person who's following. You didn't do it but they also don't know that they don't follow you anymore. They just stopped seeing your content and then later down the line you realize you know. One of your brothers suddenly is not following ann arbor arms anymore. You ask them why he's like. I don't know anything about it well. There have been instances where facebook or instagram has came in literally cleaned up. What somebody follows But we face the same kind of discrimination here especially on the social side of things. I mean literally yesterday less than twenty four hours ago site. Mark had one hundred forty three post removed. We got a notification one hundred and forty three of our post removed from facebook for violating violating their terms of agreement. But when you when you look at the post you're like i don't understand we. We cooperated with everything you told us to do. We don't have you know we don't some of them. Don't even have firearms in them. You know and it's not like occasionally we might post a picture of somebody who went out and shot a hog or something. And if you don't wanna see a day amoy okay fine. We'll figure out a way to promote promote it without doing that and they're still getting removed. And when you ask for clarification you get no answer yeah. I don't know why i'm surprised. And i'm not really but it fat know Firearms are definitely get a bad rap and become the sort of mascot for a lot of things that are wrong in our country and you know our founding fathers got it right and they realized that we needed the ability to own and basically have our own freedoms in our own hands and you know a lot of that is getting taken away slowly but surely and so yes. We need to focus on what we can control but we also need to be aware of our surrounding the news the media they only show one thing and they show that they don't show the person with a concealed carry permit who was carrying. And we're able to stop something very tragic from happening. Shell right if they do. It might be fifteen seconds and moving on no they don't show it at all and and for two reasons one. It doesn't fit the agenda but to. It's no longer news if there was no situate. The situation was dissolved. There's no reason to report on it. So it's it's the said it's the sad truth is it happens. Literally thousands of times a day across the country that domestic violence or assault are stopped just because somebody had a firearm in most of the time didn't even have to shoot it. But at that point time it does not become newsworthy because nothing happened Which is said. These organizations are all rating starved. So they're only gonna report on terrible terrible things But it is funny to see a government that wants to disarm its citizens and then give billions of dollars worth of military equipment to the taliban. Yeah yeah i worked We attended a trade show here in fort worth last week. let's see what was the texas trophy hunters hunters extravaganza and our booth Was the cellmark booth. We had site mark pulsar. Fire filled a bullets safe and in fiercer. All of our five brands batum. We had him in one booth. And so i had the bulletproof with a bulletproof vests up there at the front of the booth. And i'm working at so. I'm talking to people and i'm selling stuff and a guy walks up to me laughing and i'm standing right by the bullet bulletproof vest and he's just laughing and like who buys this crap and i was like man a lot of people by this stuff and i was like i was like thank you know i there are the doomsday properties which everybody laughs at. You know Whether it's a good idea a bad idea. I don't know but they buy it but in the recent Violence to tap into the last two years across the entire nation. Some of the big. I mean look at chicago has multiple like double digit shootings up in the twenties or thirties. Almost every single weekend people within those communities. There's good people in. They're scared for their lives. They're buying this stuff up like crazy in and he was like he was like well. Isn't it mainly just the people that are scared of the government sustain people who are scared of getting their guns taken away and i said you know there is a there is a factor of. Yes you know. Some people carry or have guns or have bulletproof vest because they are scared that one day the government is going to try and income and take over their lives. Yes that is true but what you're not thinking about you're setting in your comfy house in your neighborhood or whatever it might be completely safe on a day to day basis. There's a reason originally..

"Of them or a lot of times. There's actually somebody falls in love with the trigger on one of Radio in the hand but the other one and a lot of the big things about the shield to point out was that gripped texture and it was always one of the things that we would say. Look in your hand. The spills rop when go and shoot it. You actually appreciate right texture. Because it doesn't move around in your hand as much but that is one of the things that you have to understand about yourself. If you're not wearing a t-shirt underneath your outer shar up in the next one will rob against the skin right. yeah absolutely so i I had heard i. I was looking through my notes before. I walked in here and i saw that at one point in time i recently you guys were working on. Maybe getting some type of tv show deal lined up But then some stuff happened. That kind of fell through Primarily because of some discrimination issues against the firearms industry. I don't really want to you know. Obviously we don't want to drag anybody through the mud. We take it all day long everyday but generally the firearms industry doesn't dish it back out to companies do as bad without without necessarily slandering anybody. Could you walk me through kind of what happened in this. In this situation though you know we were approached with the opportunity and it was something that was sort of too good to be true It was really awesome opportunity where it would do industry spotlight and they wanted to pick you know everything from manufacturer on up to retailer marketing company. And they wanna just highlight somebody different. You know whether the manufacturer on one level the distributor the retailer and all the support whether it be a marketing company or you know people that geared what they do towards the firearms industry. So they're doing sort of an industry spotlight and reputation for customer service. Kind of was what led them to look for us and that was an honor We expressed our concerns about. You think this can go mainstream and you can get this out to all these different channels. Then let's go for it. And then you know and i think they learned a lesson as well as when it was all done an edited and if they did a really good job on it but when it came time to put it out to the different channels that you know they were used to being able to go through It was all shot down just because of the fact that it was a buyer arms industry related piece and so we're sort of used to that We thought this was going to be different. I don't know why But once again you know we thought with the people behind it that they obviously knew what they were doing and could would be able to with our math ledge of wanting to spread the firearms into the next generation. What it's going to require the personal level responsibility to take these people any level bring them in and provide them the resources necessary to be a safe responsible gun owner otherwise the people who grew up on the farm shooting. A gun are dying off. Farm fields are being turned into subdivisions and the country. Is you know getting further and further out and people are less aware of firearms and firearms safety. Our grandfather our grandparents generation. They knew how to use the firearm. It wasn't anything new. Everyone knew how to. It's just something you did part of your upbringing But now it's totally different and especially in two thousand twenty with the people coming in. Most of the people had never touched a firearm. While it's very concerning if we don't step up to the play and try to do something instead of turning our back or being frustrated with the level of novice nece. Then we're doing all of the second all of the people who appreciate our second amendment. We're doing them at this service because we're not off during the next generation absolutely well and i think you know i've talked about it on previous podcast before with other guests were they were discriminated against On the financial side of things you know. They had trouble finding a processor. That accredit processor that would take their accounts and if they if they yeah if they did find one they charged them crazy rates rates. You know double what they would charge. You know any other customer is people are unaware. This started back in the obama administration when he started operation. Choke point which targeted industries the firearms industry. Being one of them It targeted these industries in a loud these financial financial institutions to really kind of boyscout working with them Now since then some states have started Especially on the firearms side texas. Just did this a few months ago. coming up with legislation that makes that illegal So thank god. I hope michigan jumps on their eventually but when it comes to stuff like tv shows this. This is happening all the time there other opportunities for people in the firearms industry where they've had some type of plug like that that got pulled from them because the network or the distributors wouldn't pick it up and just like you said it's up to us to be able to educate and train in in teach people new things but the people that before we grow up on a farm and as they grew up with twelve siblings at farm splits into twelve pieces and then those as those twelve siblings have kids that farm splits into more pieces and all the sudden. You've got kids selling off property and and stuff like that. They turned into housing divisions. Twenty years down the road. You've got People who didn't grow up with the same ability of being able to fire on their property. I get that You match that up with companies that straight up refuse to show programming because it's a firearms business that leads to a population. That doesn't know how to use guns and frankly doesn't get to see firearms even through their media so they're very ignorant about it what it's gonna take on. Unfortunately it's this way across every aspect of our society now. Not just within the firearms industry but conservatism in general is being suppressed time across everything we see it in hollywood movies We see it in the government. What it's going to take is some big conservatives out there got to start their own platforms. We've got to be able to create our own content and figure out a way to get that out to people and i'm talking about you know you got dish network direct tv. You got all these Channels that provided stuff for them. We gotta have our own set like it's. It's this huge task that we've got to be able to do and you know you see. Let's see who was that. Somebody just came out. It was like the first big hollywood. Not hollywood movie produced The daily wire the daily.

"And just to pull out in. Turn our backs as you know. You know sad in a way. Yeah i agree completely and Yeah it's a crazy there's politics behind every single move nowadays teams like you know everybody is trying to You know prop themselves up for for one thing by by doing something else and without getting into the politics of it all Would you know we all just need to fill. We feel these emotions for these situations in in rightfully so But we gotta remember on the back end just whatever we can control control what we can't you gotta give it to god And that's that's the way. I with my life and you know there's a lot of emotions play here but but like you said You know we we have to fall back and rely on something and when everything else seems to to be going away. I i always feel like like he's there anyway. I'm going to take care of stuff so we'll just hope that happens instead of getting instead of getting sucked down this rabbit hole I'm gonna switch it back over. We'll talk a little bit more about ann. Arbor arms now you guys also go by A three is that right. Well three is just sort of a easy way to you. Know ann arbor arms. Where in ann arbor michigan. So right arm stands for firearms obviously and so a three. Since there's the three as is just kind of like a nice little logo kind of fits and so it's all part of who we are kuhn so we don't go by one or the other all kind of part of it. If somebody was going to try and find you on google they would use ann arbor arms okay. That's that's the most important part because if anybody does listen to this and decide to check you out i wanna make sure thing find easily So you guys you guys are full retail shop and then you also have a gun range. Is that correct. that's correct. We have twenty four lanes three different beds. Okay very nice. Well yes as well as retail retail side of stuff. I mean Walk me through a little bit about what you guys do is just as it firearms optics. All your normal stuff or you guys. Get any specialties. What what's arbor arms all about on the retail side. All right so. I think the easiest way to describe us is we have a good better and best mentality If you go to a car shop and you're or if you go to a dealership and you're shopping for a car you wanna see what you're looking at but you might also want to see a step down something a little less expensive and you might wanna see something a step up a little bit higher right so we wanna have a selection that you know sorta meets our facility in our mentality and have something for. Everyone want to happen inexpensive stuff that we approve of that. We've been able to guarantee sort of works as well as the popular stuff as well as the sorta higher end stuff that you don't see everywhere at every gunshot sureau. We wanna have a little bit of everything. I would say we do a lot of. Ar we do a lot of concealed. Carry firearm and everything in between what What do you. The most popular concealed carry gun on the market. A definitely be between four. I don't know if i could tell you. The exact first second third and fourth places but it would definitely be between the glock forty three acts the big three five The how cat springfield at the moment and the shield plus the new shield plus so out definitely say you know those four. I don't care who is lifted is though spark on a show up. Yeah yeah. I would agree. Those are the ones that seem to to hear quite a bit about. I personally have Both the springfield And the smith and wesson For me the hell cat was a little bit better. Fit for me at was a no brainer to go with fourteen rounds while i also sorry. I had the smith in less than impe two point. Oh shield so. This was bought it before the before the plot. Yeah yeah so anyway. I then i upgraded to where that gun for a long time and i liked it a lot but i'll tell you that the two point oh a grip on the. Snp are sorry smith and wesson. Yeah the That grip was just a little bit too abrasive against my my skin when awarded my belt But also i had a lot of. I had a little bit of trouble with that. Gun personally With anything past. I would say like about fifteen yards. I would start to my trigger. Pull would kind of. I would drift off in my impact would always be off to the right a bit and after evaluate after shooting it for a while i was able to kinda correct that a little bit but i still always kinda went over to the right and i had good groupings but always over to the right a little bit. Why shut shut the hell cat and fell in love with immediately. I didn't have that issue at all. And the only difference. I can think of is Completely different grips. The smith and wesson was a little bit wider in skinnier So it might imagination. Is that when i pulled the trigger is getting a little bit of turn within actual grip versus the healthcare That that that's exactly what it was. It you're slightly over gripping cause it was just the way that in your hand and the slightly wider grip of the hal. Catch a student you better. Yeah yep and i it. It felt a little more comfortable for me. And at the time. I went from seven rounds to to fourteen rounds So that was a no brainer for me. But yeah that's what i'm carrying. Now it's interesting because Let's see who was it. That just came out with a new compact pistol. Was it ruger. Was maybe tour. Debt the match. Yes that one gained a lot more attention than i expected a little bit low to the you know. They're not the first one now at most things but there are always going to have something in the games. The thing about a ruger. They always seem to work To me in the path haven't been the highest on the feature right side of things but they always tend to work so it's something that we always have. It's never the most sought after it's never the least sought after. But it's always kinda you know just just underneath the the the main Contenders but in not a huge distant. Yeah the price. The price point reflects to within the from ruger to these other brands to generally across across a across the spectrum. So that's one reason. I bring them in there because if somebody is looking at getting a concealed carry weapon today they need to know those four main ones pleasant if you want something on a little bit on the Cheaper i wouldn't say cheaper side. But the i wouldn't say lower end it's it's a lower value. It's price lower price lower than the other ones lower price slightly lower but If i were. I think one of the biggest things as you know somebody who carries every day One of the coolest things that we can do here and it's not to just jump back and plug guys but at the same point we want to get out and try the new things and see if it's better than what we currently have and one of the things that we do is we do the.

Holy smokes same parents behn parents know twins triplets all. Not what house. okay okay. I think we've got the hook out there. And if people have bit by now than i don't know maybe they just need to go. Listen to another podcasts. Because that in itself is probably a whole podcast gang. Give me a little bit of information about you. And then and then let's roll that into ann arbor arms and what you guys do perfect So as you already mentioned. I come from a large family. My dad has a baptist pastor and also he's an engineer so he's been busy man. My mom stayed at home and taught us where homeschool done You know kind of grew up in a rather sheltered environment But one that the older. I get the more i can appreciate and from there you know. I kinda was rather rebellious as a teenager Wanting to opportunities. I saw other kids having and found myself kicked out of the home and kind of experienced some of the things my parents were trying to protect me from asia on my own and you know always knew that i wanted to be in the military especially after nine eleven. I just knew it was something that i felt the finger pointing at me Right and so after doing a lot of nothing for a year to I graduated high school And then joined the marine corps portland in the marine corps in two thousand five. Want to boot camp school of infantry Joined our local unit and left right away for build up training. We were deployed to Iraq after being there for oh not long over a month. I think it was five or six weeks. I was injured It was a roadside bomb. It's took my right leg and got some minor fractures in my back and minor brain injury but also to you. Know a lot of my innocence and took My my squad leader sergeant brock babb and our radio operator Josh hines killed them on in that explosion and one of my best friends josh. Bil- lost both legs in just a myriad of other injuries. And somehow still around and you know went through an extensive recovery several surgeries. I at one time i counted. It was over forty about four years in the hospital and got out. it's motivational. Speaking did a little bit of Pursuing golf a hand then kinda needed to get back into an everyday life and that's when this store in arbor arms was opening this big facility. This expanded facility. And that's when i jumped in here got involved with ann arbor arms just because i love the people and the sort of approach they were taken Was a little bit less than traditional. And i just you know i lined with it and i i truly enjoyed working with the customer and being able to not worry about anything other than just taking care of a customer no matter what that meant and feeling the ownership on down just really. That's what they cared about as well so found a nice bit here and worked myself up into the director of ranger retail. And so i now am able to kind of steer the ship to some degree and keep things focused on the customers that come in. And and that's what i'm really most passionate about awesome well Let me just i say. Thank you for your service and the sacrifices you and You know everybody else's made it. Sounds like that was a pretty traumatic experience i can. I can only imagine the emotions that you're going through even right now as we gladly hand afghanistan back to the taliban. Sure that You know being evolved involved in the military's That's gotta be hard to see that kind of stuff Go down the way. It has seemed like there was some some ways we could have done this a little bit more effective right and yeah i mean you know. I was born in ninety. Two that shocks people. I was born in ninety two but You know eight years of my life The the first eight years of my life only years we have not been in afghanistan. And that's insane to me to see the outcome. That's that's happening right now Right i mean. Do you have any thoughts on on. What's going on over there. But i do. And i have a lot of mixed emotions and i know. A lot of guys do Guys and gals that have served in you know just american citizens a whole. There's a lot of Uneasiness and you know there's a lotta reminiscent things that hearken back to previous wars that we've had and you know a lot of bloodshed and loss of friends and family members and you know somehow it makes it feel a little bit less important. The sacrifices that were made to some degree I also understand that. There's a lot more at play here and there's some political positioning and things going on and it's just where we're at as a as a whole is a little bit concerning but i don't really want to get into the politics of it all tune so much as yeah there's definitely some frustration and concern and sadness and you know a lot of a lot of my personal friends. You know blood for the same thing and Saw firsthand a lot of the families over there that were just struggling to survive in to raise their children and now the father. I look at everything through a different lens. I sort of look at it through my children's eyes and wanting to provide for them the best life experience humanly possible awesome. And then i look at the parents and those that are suffering in that country and how much worse. It's going to be for the people who are not taliban Afghanis and knowing that here. I sit in a comfortable room and have a comfortable life. And there's some people over there whose kids are gonna get snatched away from them and put into terrorist camps to train new terrorists things that nature. So when i look at it through that. I i'm so sad and at the parents that cannot provide the future that they were striving to provide in just a war torn country.
