Texas has a new SC!!
« on: May 14, 2018, 09:00:19 AM »
 ^:)^  ^:)^ Congratulations to TxRebel, the new Texas State Coordinator! ^:)^ ^:)^

It has been my pleasure and my privilege to serve you as SC, and I leave knowing that Texas is strong, vibrant, and produces the finest instructors in the program -- all thanks to YOU!  I am humbled to have served, I have stood on the shoulders of giants, and I continue to be amazed by the grace, grit, and generosity of our Texas Cadre.  Because of YOUR hard work and perseverance, we've got TWO KD ranges up and running, shoots all over the state, and are running program in areas that have been out-of-reach for some time.  We're reaching more people, and spreading the word of Liberty over the entire state, in fact, the NATION.  The response to our booth at NRAAM this year was excellent, to say the least, and I know that with YOUR continued support Texas will continue to grow and shine as only the Lone Star State can!  I can't help but smile, friends, at what we've accomplished so far -- and at what we'll do in the future.

TxRebel, our new SC, is FANTASTIC, and I don't use that word lightly.  If you've not seen him (and how could you MISS him :1luvu) he's the six-foot-plus former helicopter pilot turned Appleseeder that is always in the mix of things, rocking and ready to help!  He's possessed of excellent one-on-one skills, and you can often find him working deals with sponsors, speaking to range owners, and chasing down new and exciting projects!  You'll find TxRebel an excellent marksman, a fine instructor, a true patriot, and most of all a good friend to all.

Now please give TxRebel a warm Texas welcome to his new position!  :F

Thank you Jim for your embarrassing praise.  I'm very excited to take on this new responsibility.  Between Jim, and Mary before him I've got big shoes to fill.  Thank you for everything Jim; you did an awesome job.

Jim already gave you some of my background so I won't get into that.  If we haven't met yet I'm planning on attending shoots at every location in the state to meet everyone, and help wherever I can.  Here's how I see my new job, I exist to make sure you have what you need.  Without you this program falls apart.  I'm here to make sure all of you get what you need.  If you have any problems or ideas to improve AS please feel free to PM me or call me (254-304-8900) I'm here to help.

I'm honored and humbled to be chosen for this position and look forward to working with y'all.

 Jim,  you are possibly the most "up" person I've ever met,  and it's been a genuine pleasure bothering you every time I get a fool idea in my head  :cool2: I'm looking forward to bothering you in your new capacity as well!

Dan,  Dan,  Dan....  you're gonna get so sick of me  **)

No, seriously,  you're going to be AMAZING. The foundation of the Texas Cadre is in good hands.

Congratulations!!!  :beer: :1luvu :partytime:

Dan, thank you for your service to your/our country!   O0  Then and now!

Best regards, Two Wolves   :cool2:
A moral compass provides a basis for making decisions; an action is good or bad, right or wrong when viewed in the light of the individual's moral bearing. If no moral compass exists for the individual, then decisions and actions are made on the basis of purely subjective thoughts. This leads to "If it makes me happy, or makes me feel good, or if it's something I simply want to do, then it is right and good."
